Ozeki 10 SMS Gateway

SMS modem pool

This guide gives information on how to connect SMS modem pools to Ozeki 10 SMS Gateway. Setting up a modem pool is usually very easy. Modems in the modem pool will be handled as independent modems in your system. In this guide you can read the detailed steps for configuring an 8 port GSM modem pool. The steps are similar for larger 16, 32, 64, 128 port pools. Modem pools are a good choice if you want to operate many phone numbers. To get the phone numbers, you need to purchase SIM cards for each modem slot in the modem pool. The SIM cards will have their mobile phone nubmers assigned to them, and you can use these phone numbers in the SMS routing in Ozeki 10 SMS gateway.
