Enable SMS for GpsGate Server

Here are the different options for how to enable SMS on your GpsGate Server. SMS is typical used for sending commands to GPS trackers or to send notifications and messages to users. If you don't need that you don't need SMS.

GpsGate SMS Proxy (Two-way)
GpsGate SMS Proxy makes it possible to use a normal mobile phone to send and receive SMS from a GpsGate Server. This enables very low priced local SMS solutions.

HSL SMS (UK) (Two-way) -
Internet based SMS service. The main advantage compared to Clickatell is that the is no charge for incoming SMS.

Infobip (Two-way) -
Internet based SMS service.

SmsBroadcast (Two-way) (Australia) -

SmsGatewayCenter (India) (One-way) -
Only outgoing SMS supported.

Cool SMS (Denmark) (Two-way) -

VexxMobile (Brazil) (Two-way) -

WebSms (Austria) (Two-way) -

Nawras (Oman) (one-way) -

Jawal SMS (Saudi Arabia) (one-way) -

MobileProntoSMS (Brazil) (one-way) - ttp://
NOTE! This service cannot send "+" signs.

Clickatell (Two-way, Unicode) -
Clickatell provides an Internet based SMS service which can be connected to GpsGate Server.
(Note! Clickatel has proven to have an unreliable service that changes things like Sender ID, and character encoding randomly over time).

Diafaan SMS (one-way) -

Zenziva SMS (two-way) -

Raco Wireless (one-way) -

SMS Canal (one-way)

PSWin (Norway) (one-way)

Twilio (one-way)

Using multiple SMS providers
This new feature will let you categorize SMS providers for different applications and geographical locations. This way, you can let the system pick the most advantageous provider based on the recipient phone number.

Developers only: Integrate SMS over HTTP (Recommended for integration)
GpsGate Server provides a very simple and straight forward HTTP API which can be used for integration to any SMS service.

Developers only: Integrate using .NET (Difficult, not recommended)
If you are a developer and want to integrate other providers of SMS, please take a look at the class "GpsGate.Client.SmsProxyClient" in "GpsGate Tracking Client SDK"

Native SMS integration (most powerful but requires experienced .NET developer, difficult not recommended):

Still not found a suitable option?
We can also help you to integrate SMS to a local SMS provider using web services.

Third party integrations

Those are not supported by GpsGate
