Where do I find my SMPP credentials, port, and host?


Question

What credentials should I use for SMPP?

Applies To

  • SMPP
  • Login Credentials

Answer

Your SMPP credentials can be found in the API settings when you log in to your Vonage API account dashboard.

The correspondence with SMPP parameters are as follows:

  • System_ID = Key
  • Password = Secret

Host:

  • smpp0.nexmo.com (if only connecting to one gateway)
  • smpp1.nexmo.com and smpp2.nexmo.com (if connecting to our cluster in EMEA/Americas)
  • smpp3.nexmo.com and smpp4.nexmo.com (if connecting to cluster our in Asia-Pacific)

Port: 8000

Throughput: 30 sms/sec

Connections: 2 connections max (may be one TR and one RX, or two TRX)

Enquire Link Frequency: 30 seconds

Note: The default API secret is 16 characters. We strongly encourage you to shorten this to 8-10 characters as most SMPP servers cannot handle the extra length. You can change the API secret in your Vonage API account dashboard, under Settings.
