This concept document describes using SMPP instead of REST to receive traffic from TelecomsXChange Network.

What is SMPP (Short Message Peer-to-Peer) ?

Short Message Peer-to-Peer in the telecommunications industry is an open, industry standard protocol designed to provide a flexible data communication interface for the transfer of short message data between External Short Messaging Entities, Routing Entities and Message Centres.

TelecomsXChange uses SMPP V5.0 by default which is backward compatible with V3.4 as well.
