RestComm SMSC Gateway

RestComm SMSC Gateway to send/receive SMS from/to Mobile Operator Networks (GSM, SS7 MAP) , SMS aggregators (SMPP) and Internet Telephony Service Providers (SIP, SMPP).


RestComm SMSC Gateway is built on RestComm SS7 and RestComm JSLEE Server

When a user sends a text message (SMS message) to another user, the message gets stored in the SMSC (short message service center) which delivers it to the destination user when they are available. This is a store and forward option.

An SMS center (SMSC) is responsible for handling the SMS operations of a wireless network.

When an SMS message is sent from a mobile phone, it will reach an SMS center first.

2) The SMS center then forwards the SMS message towards the destination.

3) The main duty of an SMSC is to route SMS messages and regulate the process. If the recipient is unavailable (for example, when the mobile phone is switched off), the SMSC will store the SMS message.

4) It will forward the SMS message when the recipient is available.

Build From Source

SMSC GW refers now to cloud hopper SMPP project version (with support for submit_multi operation) that is not yet merged to repo. Therefore if you need to compile SMSC GW locally, you need to compile the updated version of cloud hopper SMPP from repo, branch "master_submit_multi-2" previously.

You can use these commands:

git clone
git checkout master_submit_multi-2
mvn clean install

Then you can download and compile SMSC GW code locally.

SMSC GW contains branches with code versions:

  • master - the last actual code (support for smpp, ss7 and sip connectors and diameter OCS server)
  • legacy-2 - code with support only for smpp and sip
  • legacy - very old poor code version
