General overview

Ozeki Message Server 6 is an SMS gateway that can be used to set up a high capacity text messaging software in your office. You can use it as a bidirectional E-mail to SMS gateway, as an SQL to SMS gateway or as an HTTP SMS gateway. In fact you can have all of this functionality at the same time. You can also use it from many programming languages, such as C++, Java, PHP, ASP, Delphi and MS Access, to create automated SMS services.

Ozeki Message Server 6 is an installable software that runs as a system service on your Windows 10, Windows 11, 2008 computer. In terms of communication it can use the Internet to attach to SMS service providers using SMPP, CIMD2, UCP/EMI, HTTP or proprietary protocols; or you can attach one or more GSM modems to your computer to do the sending and receiving.
