MobiGATE: Monitor Your SMS Gateway (Modems) on Your Desktop

MOBITEK MobiGATE is a SMS Gateway (also refer as a modem pool or SMS channel) used for SMS broadcast. It supports 8 modems (SIM cards) and more.

Problem arises when there are too many modems to monitor and no centralised tool to assist.

The solution is a tool called “Control Panel”.

“Green” when modem is running; “Orange” when modem is disabled

"Red" when modem is stopped or disconnected

We are pleased to announce version 2.5 of Control Panel.

 

Features of Control Panel version 2.5

  • GUI tool to edit the “config.xml”  (configuration file for MOBITEK SMS Engine — Enterprise Edition). Previously, notepad is being used to edit the configuration file;
  • supports SMS Engine — Enterprise Edition version 6 and 7 (version 5 is NOT supported);
  • to start and stop the service of SMS Engine;
  • to monitor up to 16 modems or more;
