I am gonna need a very high kapacity SMS Gateway, sending 150.000 - 250.000 messages pr. month in gruops of 1000 - 2000 messages.

I read in other post in this forum, that you can reach very high speeds by using GPRS.

What setup would you recommend me, needing the highest capacity posible ?

Hi,

For that type of volume, you'd probably be better off working with an SMS service provider, as they usually offer better rates (particularly for high volumes) than you get from a mobile operator when you are using GSM modems. (A GSM modem operates over a subscription to a mobile operator, just like with a mobile phone. So you are charged per message the same as if you sent them from a mobile phone.)

It all depends on where you are located, as there are some countries where the rates for sending messages over GSM modems are very attractive.

Regarding GSM modems, it is possible to connect multiple GSM modems to the same computer in order to increase throughput.

Most GSM modems that have GPRS support will support SMS over GPRS. However, there are still issues of whether or not this capability is supported by your mobile operator. So it is a good idea to test this out before you look at a large deployment.
