Least cost SMS routing

This is a configuration example on how to setup least cost SMS routing in Ozeki SMS Gateway. Least cost SMS routing means, that SMS messages are routed to the appropriate SMS service provider connection based on the telephone number prefix. If you are not familier with SMS routing at all, we recommend you to read the SMS routing basics guide before you continue.

In our example, there are three SMS Service provider connections: Telenor, T-Mobile, Vodafone. The routing is setup the following way:

  • If an SMS is sent to a phone number that starts with +3620 it should be routed to Telenor
  • If an SMS is sent to a phone number that starts with +3630 it should be routed to T-Mobile
  • If an SMS is sent to a phone number that starts with +3670 it should be routed to Vodafone
  • All other SMS messages should be routed to one of these providers randomly.

To setup this routing the outbound routing table should be modified. The outbound routing table, that determines which service provider connection will be used to send an SMS message, can be found in the bottom part of the center panel of the management form of Ozeki SMS Gateway (Figure 1).

In the Route details menu select the From and To connections which are Any SMS User and Telenor in this case (Figure 2).
