An MMSC (Multimedia Messaging Service Center) is a telecom carrier’s MMS store and forward server. MMSCs will forward any messages to the correct MMSC regardless of the carrier being used by the sender.

How Bandwidth is Involved with MMSC

Bandwidth provides messaging services which connect our company to Multimedia Messaging Service Centers. When a multimedia message is sent, it has to be relayed through an MMSC before it reaches its intended recipient. All messages that are powered by Bandwidth that are MMS go through at least one MMSC in order to reach the recipient. When the sender and the recipient have different MMSCs, Bandwidth uses the MM4 protocol in order to exchange the message between two MMSCs.
