Short Message Service Center (SMSC)

Short Message Service Center (SMSC) is the portion of a wireless network that handles SMS operations, such as routing, forwarding and storing incoming text messages on their way to their desired endpoints. Wireless network operators connect SMSCs through SMS gateways.


How Bandwidth is Involved with SMSC

When a message is sent with Bandwidth Services, an SMSC accepts the message with the delivery receipt value set where it is sent from the SMPP gateway. The SMSC will return the final disposition of the message as determined by the carrier.
