Overview


An SMS gateway allows a computer to send or receive Short Message Service (SMS) transmissions to or from a telecommunications network. The SMS Gateway translates the message sent, and makes it compatible for delivery over the network to be able to reach the recipient. We can configure Seqrite UTM to send SMS and also can add an SMS Gateway to send notification SMS for system-generated events and User authentication.
