MOBITEK S80 SMS Modem — Send SMS via SQL Statement

Problem: Many 3G modems allow you to send SMS via graphical user interface but not able to integrate with your software or system.

 

Solution: MOBITEK® S80 SMS Modem

MOBITEK® S80 allows you to integrate with your software or system send SMS via SQL statement.

  1. To send out SMS
    Insert into Outbox (Message, Mobile, DateTimeQueue, Status) 
    values (‘Hello!’, ‘0163311600’, mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm am, ‘P’)
  2. To read all new SMS
    Select * from Inbox where Status = ‘New’

 

How It Works?

  • Your application will connect to a MS Access database file.
  • SMS Engine — Basic Edition (Windows software) connects to both MOBITEK® S80 and with the database file.
  • Whenever there is a new record in the [outbox] table, SMS Engine — Basic Edition will pick-up and instruct MOBITEK® S80 to send out as SMS.
  • Whenever there is a new incoming SMS recevied by MOBITEK® S80, SMS Engine — Basic Edition will automatically insert into [inbox] table

 

More Advantages of SMS Engine — Basic Edition 

  1. Rapid Development: no need to waste time in developing a programme to handle incoming and outgoing SMS.
  2. SIM Unlock: enter the PIN, and the SMS Engine will unlock the SIM card.
  3. Polling: set the frequency of database polling – this will control the speed of the sending and receiving SMS.
  4. Delivery Status Report: a report will accompany with each outgoing SMS to report whether the SMS is delivered or not.
  5. Routing: able to configure multiple mobile number prefixes (by comma separated).
  6. Direction: to speed-up the broadcast, SMS Engine can be configured to send SMS only.
  7. Query Balance: if prepaid is used, the credit balance can be queried.
  8. Reload: if prepaid is used, a top-up can be performed.
