A gateway service is quite literally, a “gateway” to your customers’ mobile devices. It provides access to the mobile carriers’ networks so that you can deliver your messages through them directly to your contacts. The best services are designed to be extremely easy to use and navigate.
SMPP stands for “short message peer-to-peer”—this is the gold standard protocol used to send SMS messages. When bulk SMS messages are sent through SMPP, they’re relayed to the mobile carriers (Bell, Virgin, AT&T, Verizon, etc.), and then through their networks to your customers’ phones.
