Mobile Originated SMS

MO-SMS originated from a device with a 1NCE SIM.

SMS messages originating from a device with a 1NCE SIM are referred to as Mobile Originated SMS (MO-SMS). Similar to (MT-SMS), messages sent from IoT devices with 1NCE SIM are only forwarded to application targets and not other devices. For accessing and receiving the messages, 1NCE offers multiple solutions for different needs:

Connectivity Management Platform

The most basic option to receive and visualize MO-SMS is the Connectivity Management Platform (CMP). In the web user interface the messages and timestamps for individual SIM can be viewed. This is useful for debugging and testing with a limited amount of SIM cards. The data shown in the CMP will be retained for seven days. Afterward, the records of the received SMS will no longer be visible. For more details about the usage of the CMP, refer to the Getting Started guide.

Management API

Besides monitoring SMS relevant parameters via the 1NCE API, it is also possible to query messages for specific SIM from the API. This application is meant for infrequent queries of a small number of messages, e.g. for testing purposes.
Despite it is possible to send a lot of requests on a regular basis in order to monitor/manage your messages, there is a better solution for processing your sent SMS. For that purpose, 1NCE offers the SMS Forwarding Service.

Although it would be possible to query SMS messages for all SIM regularly, it is not recommended to create unnecessary HTTP Requests and loads on the API. A better solution for receiving large amounts of SMS messages regularly is the SMS Forwarding Service. The process of querying messages with the API and HTTP Requests is described in the 1NCE API documentation.

SMS Forwarding Service

For receiving SMS messages in an automated way, the SMS Forwarding Service is the ideal solution. It allows getting push messages via a customer-specified HTTP REST interface. Details about the Forwarding Service can be found in the SMS Forwarding Service section.
