  9. 9. SMSC Protocol Why use SMPP...?
  10. 10. SMPP: introduction The Short Message Peer to Peer (SMPP) protocol is an open, industry standard protocol designed to provide a flexible data communications interface for transfer of short message data between a Message Center .

  16. 16. Protocol Overview: SMPP Short Message Peer to Peer (SMPP) protocol is an open message-transfer protocol that enables short message entities ( SME s) outside the mobile network to interface with an SMSC . Non-mobile entities that submit messages to, or receive messages from an SMSC are known as External Short Message Entities ( ESME s).
  17. 17. Protocol Overview SMSC ESME SME Messages Messages SMPP Mobile Network TCP/IP or X.25 network connection
  18. 18. Protocol Overview <ul><li>Based on request and response </li></ul><ul><li>The SMPP protocol defines </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Set of operations and Protocol Data Units ( PDU s) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data </li></ul></ul>
  19. 19. Protocol Overview Every SMPP operation consist of a request and associated response (but some have exception). ESME SMSC Request Response

  22. 22. SMPP Session <ul><li>Session initiated by ESME </li></ul><ul><li>Session states: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>OPEN (Network connection established) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>BOUND_TX (ESME issuing a bind_transmitter PDU) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>BOUND_RX (ESME issuing a bind_receiver PDU) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>BOUND_TRX (ESME issuing a bind_transceiver PDU) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>UNBOUND (only on SMPP v5.0) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CLOSED (Network connection closed) </li></ul></ul>
  23. 23. SMPP Session: transmitter (TX) ESME SMSC Network connection bind_transmitter bind_transmitter_resp Send short messages
  24. 24. SMPP Session: receiver (RX) ESME SMSC Network connection bind_receiver bind_receiver_resp Receive short messages
  25. 25. SMPP Session: transceiver (TRX) ESME SMSC Network connection bind_transceiver bind_transceiver_resp Send and receive short messages
  26. 26. SMPP Session Question: How if SMSC want to send messages but there is no valid SMPP session? Use outbind operation
  27. 27. SMPP Session The purpose of the outbind operation is to allow the SMSC signal an ESME to originate a bind_receiver request to the SMSC.
  28. 28. SMPP Session: using outbind ESME SMSC Network connection outbind bind_receiver Receive short messages bind_receiver_resp
