Can someone explain how the SMS message rate is calculated and the logic for when SMS messages are queued based on reaching the licensed rate threshold limit? For example, is there a sliding 60 min time window or bin that adds up the incoming SMS messages over 60 min and when it reaches the license limit for 60 min it queues the incoming SMS messages? Or, for example, if the SMS license is for 30MPM, does the SMSNow application perform a new calculation each time a new SMS arrives and use the timestamp of the new SMS and the time stamp of the previously received SMS or some number of previous SMSs and calculate a message rate and if it exceeds the licensed message rate, it queues incoming SMS messages for a length of time that would bring the message rate down below the licensed message rate? I need to understand the logic for when an incoming message will be queued because the licensed SMS message rate threshold has been reached so I can understand whether short incoming SMS message bursts over short time periods will result in the SMS messages be sent or queued. Thanks.

Hi David,

It is applied over each minute period.

Incoming and outgoing each have their own threshold ... so one does not affect the other.

Incoming messages (from an SMSC connection) are queued with a limit only with regard to how quickly they are dispatched to a 2-way command.
