About Mobius SMSC Gateway

Mobius SMSC Gateway is mostly designed for Mobile Network Operator (MNO) and Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) services that require complete SS7 integration. It enables service providers and enterprises to deliver SMS, group SMS, SMS short codes and broadcast SMS features to their subscribers. In addition, it also enables value-added services through easy integration with over the top (OTT) communications services like WhatsApp, WeChat and Viber and social networking services like Facebook and Twitter. 

Mobius SMSC Gateway provides easy integration with any third-party communication protocol or system using industry-standard telecom interfaces including SIP. HTTP, SS7 MAP, or SMPP. Also supports SIP connectivity, connectivity to ESMEs (Emergency Service Messaging), and advanced SCCP routing rules to map short codes to MSISDNs, the latter feature is very popular for e-commerce, health and banking services. 

Mobius SMSC Gateway utilizes the fast and scalable nosql big data database for storing and handling messages. Cassandra stores unsent messages, messages successfully sent and messages that failed to be sent. A single SMSC node can process up to 1,000 SMS/sec; multiple nodes can be clustered and deployed very quickly for redundancy and scaling purposes. 

Mobius SMSC Gateway can be deployed on various dedicated hardware, private cloud infrastructure, or public cloud services such as AWS or Google Cloud. Intel and Dialogic boards are supported for legacy E1/T1 links; legacy SS7 connections to an MSC/HLR via SIGTRAN links over M3UA are supported, too. 

A scriptable Command Line Interface (CLI) tool is provided for complete gateway configuring during run-time and managing it using simple commands. In addition, a Graphical User Interface (GUI) tool is provided to configure, monitor, and manage the Gateway via a convenient user-friendly interface.
