Android SMS proxy

Topic: Android SMS proxy

I am encountering a lot of other SaaS providers offering an android SMS proxy app.  This allows one to provide a more cost-effective way to send SMS locally to clients for alerts/notifications.  Is there an available or will there be an available such app for Wialon?

Re: Android SMS proxy

You can connect private SMPP gateway for your monitoring website and use your local SMPP provider if this will be cheaper for you. Provider can route SMS further or even process them (SMS2 Email, SMS2HTTP etc). As for app - we need  more information about use cases and functionality that you would like to have. Please send us use cases or few app names that offer SMS Proxy features you want to use in our platform.

Re: Android SMS proxy

Ask yourself what happens if gateway phone has connection issues or it just freezes. These applications depend on cellphone, e.g. they cannot handle big amount of messages and have 30 seconds timeout.

In Wialon you can connect SMPP account with local number that allows to use local prices for messages. User tariff cannot be cheaper than bulk SMS price from SMPP provider.
If you need live SIM card - this is also possible. You will need Linux host with hardware modem (COM or USB) connected to the internet, we can install special software that will send all SMS alerts from your service via modem with local SIM number. SMPP service or remote physical modem is much more reliable and professional solution than relying on user devices. They are too slow to deliver big amount of SMS. Industrial modem or SMPP provider can handle hundreds and thousands SMS per minute. I doubt that cell phone can handle the same load 24/7.
