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.

Set up your 8 port GSM modem pool
The first step of setting up your modem pool is to insert a SIM card into one or more ports. The SIM card can be plugged into the modem as Figure 1 shows.
Next, you need to connect the antenna to the ports that have a SIM card inserted into. You can connect the antenna right after you removed the cover like in Figure 2.
To use the modem pool, next you have to connect it to a light socket with a power cable. As you can see on Figure 3, the power cable can be connected to the modem pool easily.
After you connected the modem pool to the power supply, you just need to turn on the modem pool by switching on the button as you can see it on Figure 4. If your modem is under power, the button lights up.
Next, you need to turn on the selected GSM port as well like in Figure 5.
The connectivity of the ports can be checked easily by the blue light next to the antenna (Figure 6). If it starts to blink, the SIM card connected right.
The last step of the setup process is to connect the modem pool to the PC. For that, as you can see on Figure 7, plug the USB cable into your modem pool.
To finish the setup, just insert the other end of the cable into your computer (Figure 8).
Configure the modem pool with Ozeki NG 10
Now your modem is ready to be configured. The first step you have to fulfill is to open Ozeki NG 10 on your desktop (Figure 9).
Next, log in with your Ozeki NG 10 account by typing your username and password as you can see on Figure 10 This account has to be created during the installation process.
Here, in the SMS Gateway application, the first thing that you need to do is to create a new connection. This can be done by clicking on Add new connection as you can see on Figure 11.
The next window lists you all the connections that you can create in the SMS Gateway application. Now, as Figure 12 demonstrates, you have to select the SMS modem connection by clicking on Install.
In the installation menu, you need to select the port, where you connected the modem. For that, just click on the Autodetect button as you can see on Figure 13.
This Autodetect option will detect your modem, and if it is connected right the following window should show up like in Figure 14.
You can do this process with all the other ports, so like in Figure 15, you can manage maximum eight SMS modem connection at the same time.
Send an SMS message using the modem connection
At this point, you have an SMS modem connection in the SMS Gateway application. To handle SMS messages with this connection, first, you need to enable the connection (Figure 16) by turning on the switch button in the connection details window.
To send the SMS message, you need to type the phone number of the recipient (Figure 17) in the Recipient field.
Next, just type the text of the SMS message to the SMS field like in Figure 18.
If you are ready to send the SMS message, just click on the Send button (Figure 19).
If you did everything right, the message will be received by the recipient as you can see on Figure 20.
