Hi,

I am currently working with the Now MMS Gateway(trial version) for my project which involves sending and receiving MMS between a server application and many client applications. I have a server which is connected to a Wavecom GPRS modem and a client application which needs to communicate with the server to send and receive MMS. I have installed the Now SMS/MMS gateway on the server machine.

I would like to know if the gateway provides any APIs to :
1. extract the MMS and send it to client applications
2. receive MMS from client applications and read the MMS to perform certain functions(for e.g. generate statistics,etc)

Please let me know if there are APIs to the above tasks and if yes, where can I find them?

Best Regards,
Liu Yanxiang

Hi Liu Yanxiang,

It really depends on the specifics of your setup.

The following APIs are supported for submitting an MMS message to NowSMS:

  • MM1 (standard protocol used by MMS client in a phone)
  • MM4 (SMTP based protocol)
  • MM7 (XML/SOAP over HTTP POST)
  • EAIF (Nokia variation of MM1)
  • NowSMS Proprietary URL Format (uses standard web form formats, often easier to generate from scripting languages)


More detail on each of these formats can be found at the following link:

http://www.nowsms.com/documentation/ProductDocumentation/mms_notifications_and_c ontent/Submitting_MMS_Messages.htm

On the receiving end, when NowSMS receives an MMS message over a GSM modem interface, it has the option of presenting it to an application using:

  • File/Directory based interface (MMS-IN directory)
  • Convert to e-mail format, and route to an e-mail address
  • MM7 (XML/SOAP over HTTP POST)


More detail can be found about these options at the following link:

http://www.nowsms.com/documentation/ProductDocumentation/2_way_mms_support.htm

An MMS client can also use MM1 to retrieve MMS messages, but this is typically not used by applications, but instead by a true MMS client device that is using NowSMS as an MMSC.
