Terms and definitions in messaging

Multichannel messaging service is based on a variety of telecommunication and Internet technologies. In the description of services, we often use abbreviations that may not always be known to you. Here we have compiled a glossary of terms and definitions used in the industry.
By the way, you can create account and send SMS to your customers via Dashboard, plugin or API integration.


SMPP is an open message transfer protocol that enables users to interact with an SMSC. The protocol defines the information which needs to be exchanged between the user and the SMSC and the operations associated with the exchange of SMS messages. Every request made using SMPP has an associated response. The Messaggio SMPP implementation supports:

  • GSM, CDMA, TDMA, iDEN networks
  • SMS Messages to a single destination
  • Delivery Receipts
