How to setup an SMPP IP SMS connection
with the Ozeki Phone System

If you would like to send a few hundred SMS messages per second or want to be able to modify the phone number of the sender, even modifying it to your company’s name, then an SMPP service is your best option. You only need to sign an agreement with an SMPP provider and connect the provider with the Ozeki Phone System XE. Then you can send and receive SMS messages with the PBX. This guide will focus on how to connect the Ozeki Phone System to an SMPP server.

Let's learn how an SMPP workflow works. First the message is sent through the internet from the Ozeki Phone System to the SMPP server then the SMPP server sends it to one of the global GSM carriers which sends it out to the target number in the form of an SMS message.
