SysMaster SMS Gateway is a key building block of business

Premium Rate Numbers is one of the first payment applications

Billing Server or a third party billing solution to authorize payment and bill user.
The charge is reflected in user's monthly wireless statement. Upon payment authorization
and billing, the IVR sends request to SysMaster SMS Gateway to perform one or more
programmable actions. In a typical application, the gateway delivers access information,
ring-tones, pictures, logos and other mobile content to user's mobile phone.

and customer conversion rates. To initiate payment, mobile users
send SMS messages with user and/or vendor specific information to
the SysMaster SMS Gateway. The gateway processes the message and
sends authorization request to SysMaster VoiceMaster Billing Server
or to a third party billing solution. Upon user authorization and
billing, the gateway performs one or more programmable actions -

SMS Voting becomes increasingly accepted method for collecting information

request to SysMaster VoiceMaster Billing Server or a third party billing solution. The billing
server bills the company conducting the voting campaign and sends confirmation to the SysMaster
SMS Gateway. Upon receiving the confirmation, the gateway performs any number of programmable
actions, like vote recording, sending voting statistics through SMS or email etc.
Bulk SMS is an application for automating the sending of personalized text messages to local,
regional or global recipient base. Popular applications relying on Bulk SMS include peer-to-peer messaging,
SMS marketing, alerts, info-text, web-to-mobile content, notifications etc. With its high throughput and
reliability, SysMaster SMS Gateway is a must-have for any Bulk SMS solution. Within such solutions, the
gateway serves as an access point for inbound and outbound SMS messages. It requests authorization permissions
from billing servers, retrieves information from content servers and delivers it to mobile users.

Billing Server or a third party billing solution. The billing server bills the user and sends confirmation to the

number and/or authorized phone number. SysMaster SMS Gateway processes the message and authorizes SysMaster
VoIP platform or a third party VoIP solution to perform a call-back to the originating GSM phone.
