How to provide an SMS Service to your customers
Using the Ozeki Phone System on your server, it is possible to provide SMS service for your customers. Your customers can connect to Ozeki Phone System over the SMPP protocol using the SMS Extension of the PBX. In this guide you can read about how to install and configure an SMS Extension in your Ozeki Phone System to provide SMPP Service.
Step 1: How to setup an SMS Extension for SMPP Clients
In this step you can see how to configure Ozeki Phone System to provide SMS service for your customers.
First open a web browser and login to your Ozeki Phone System (Figure 1).
On the main screen find the Extensions section and click on Add button (Figure 3).
On the next page click on Install button to add a new SMS Extension. Using this extension, SMPP clients can connect to Ozeki Phone System. This extension allows you to send and receive SMS messages. In addition, it also handles SMS submission reports and SMS delivery reports (Figure 4).
Then you have to provide a username and password will be used by an SMPP client to connect to Ozeki Phone System. The other application needs to use the IP address of Ozeki Phone System, the 9500 port number and this username and password. If you check the "Delete messages that were processed by an extension or outsideline", the messages will not be stored in the system if they are processed (Figure 5).
If you click on Ok button, and an SMPP Client connects to the Ozeki Phone System, you can see (under the Log menu) that the connection state will become to StateConnected. This means the connection has been built successfully.
Step 2: Change the default SMPP port number
If you have an other application that uses the 9500 port number, it is also possible the change the default port number in your Ozeki Phone System.
First click on PBX features menu and then select Preferences.
On the next page, select Advanced tab, and change the default port number in the SMPP Server port textbox. Then click on Ok button to save the settings.
