We are developing an SMS based application where we will be sending high volumes of SMS. We are presently testing the application using 8250 phone, Connectivity SDK and an IR port during the pre-Alpha stage.
We would however like to scale the application first to a stage where we can send/receive about 600 messages a second (beta), and then to 12000 messages a seconds (production). Can we just purchase the Nokia M2M 30 (without Gateway) to initially give us a way of sending SMSs more reliably than using normal Nokia mobile phones?
Can Nokia 30 M2M devices send more SMS per second than a normal Nokia phone? At the moment, we are sending messages at the rate of 8 message per minute using a regular phone. We would prefer to delay direct connect to SMSC due to expense of leased line connection until the production phase.
Is the performance of the M2M devices limited by SIM technology (i.e. would we be better off scaling to direct communications with SMSC using a leased line)?
We will eventually be connecting to the service provider using SMPP/UCP. Does the M2M gateway support SMPP communications or just UCP? Does the Application Development Kit also support such communications?
