With Bandwidth Messaging services, software developers and service providers can seamlessly enable Bandwidth dashboard telephone numbers to send and receive messages via SMPP and/or MM4 protocol.
Bandwidth supports MMS in both directions, inbound and outbound over long codes. Once contracted for these services, to begin utilizing your Bandwidth Dashboard numbers for messaging, you will first need to enable your Locations.
SMS via SMPP
|From the top Navigation menu, click 'Account' and then 'Locations'|
|Click ‘edit’ by the Location you wish to enable.|
|From this page, mark the ‘SMS enabled’ checkbox.|
|Next, enable 'Toll Free' messaging and 'Short Codes' by marking their corresponding checkboxes.|
|Zone 1 will be enabled by default. To configure the numbers on this Location for International SMS, mark the checkboxes to enable international zones.|
|Note: These options will be disabled if your account is not contracted for these messaging features. If you'd like to add these features to your suite of messaging products, feel free to reach out to your Sales representative!|
|Type in your SMS IP Addresses. If you have multiple, click the plus sign to populate additional fields.|
|Your ‘Connection type’ will default to ‘Transceiver’|
MMS via MM4
|To enable the Location for 'MMS,' mark the ‘MMS enabled' checkbox.|
|Set your 'MMS Protocol' to 'MM4'|
Type in your 'MM4 Termination hosts' for outbound MMS and your 'MM4 Origination hosts' for inbound MMS.
|If you have multiple 'MM4 Origination hosts,' click the plus sign to populate additional fields.
Finally, click 'Submit'
You will see a quick warning to notify you that the configuration changes will cause a brief interruption of messaging service. Click ‘Submit’ to proceed.
We did it! The telephone numbers on your Location are now enabled for messaging! Be sure to rinse and repeat these steps on each Bandwidth Dashboard Location that needs messaging services.
