Route Mobile’s Short Message Service Centre (SMSC) as a Solution

As the festive sales, Black Friday sales, and Cyber Monday sales are on the way, and now it’s that time of the year where you have to strategize SMS marketing strategy. As per the recent study, 20% more texts were sent of Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2020 than were sent in the entire month of November 2019. With the growing popularity of SMS, it is one of the most effective customer communication channels.

While sending every SMS, it is first shared to an entity called Short Message Service Center (SMSC) and then afterward it’s shared with the recipient instead of transmitting directly to the destination. If in case, end user’s phone is switched off or unavailable the message is saved in the SMSC, and the SMS is sent when the receiver is available. SMSC essentially acts as a mediator between two endpoints on a network and is responsible for handling the SMS operations of a wireless network.

When you send an SMS message on phone, it’s necessary to know the address of the SMSC wireless network, and the SMSC address is pre-set in the SIM card by the wireless network operator.
