smsgw by itbrainpower.net :: specifications


smsgw by itbrainpower.net - WEB to SMS gateway server with parallel processing


PN: NET-WEBSMSGW#001   SKU: ITBP-10003   Designed and manufactured in the EU by R&D Software Solutions.

smsgw by itbrainpower.net it is a stand-alone HTTP(s) Linux gateway designed to send SMS in GSM networks.

The first GET interface (local WEB) listen for data calls originated by network clients, in format of pairs SMS number and SMS text message. Received data will be stored locally and then forwarded trough the GSM network via SMS in text mode.

The second GET interface, designated to act as "spread message to many destinations", listen only for the SMS text message, stored it and then forwarded it to predefined SMS destination numbers.

The SMS send status may be checked later by the client (via GET call).

Starting from existing ones, other mechanisms / algorithms for SMS processing may be easy developed by you due to well known technologies involved: MySQL, Python and PHP.

smsgw by itbrainpower.net was designed to act as in-house and easy to integrate SMS alert mechanism for your IT / IoT infrastructure. Some examples of target application that may be enhanced by such add on: three way autentification, password reset, small and medium e-shops, mettering/accounting/monitoring algorithms, other.

smsgw by itbrainpower.net :: quick installing how to


Hardware side (10-20 minutes typical)
      a. connect the network cable to the smsgw 10/100 base T port and to one switch port
      b. mount the GSM antenna on roof, window or wall. Cable the GSM antenna cable and connect it to the GSM connector. If required, you may use one cable extender (as. ITBP-0020 10m extender cable SMA F to SMA M).
      c. connect your 12V power supply cable to the power plug-in connector provided with the smsgw (keep in mind the polarity). Insert the plug-in power connector to the smsgw power connector.

The RED led will be on. As soon as the system it's up, the GREEN led will start to light note 3. After additional time note 4 the BLUE led will start to pulsate, indicating that the GSM registration status and signal level.

note 3 - GREEN led signaling coding, please read the operating manual
note 4 ~ 2 minutes or less typical, but may be longer depending on the quality of the GSM signal at instalation site

Software side (basic install)
      a. open an SSH session to 192.168.122.201 (default smsgw IP address). Use for login root having 1234 as default password.
      b. optional, but strongly recommended, change the login password (run passwd).
      c. add second IP address, being inside of your network IP class and avoiding the DHCP IP pool areanote 5. In order to perform this run ./edit-static-IP and, after that, run ./apply-static-IP scripts).

note 5 - Eg.: if your network have IPs as 192.168.100.x, DHCP pool is from 10 upt 128, the choose 192.168.100.201 as IP for your WEB to SMS gateway.

Now, the predefined SMS services may be accessed at:
1. single destination - http://your_smsgw_IP_address/web2SMS/injectSMS.php?number=destination_number&message=the_txt_message
2. "one to many" - http://your_smsgw_IP_address/web2SMS/alertSMS.php?message=the_alert_txt_message
