MMSC Messaging Server

The NowSMS MMSC is a powerful Multimedia Messaging Centre (MMSC), built into the Now SMS & MMS Gateway.  The NowSMS MMSC is unique in that it scales from simplified deployment in a mobile equipment testing facility to powering multimedia messaging services for a mobile operator network.

The NowSMS MMSC has the capability to support person-to-person (phone-to-phone) MMS messaging, as well as application-to-person and person-to-application MMS messaging.

The NowSMS MMSC supports standard MMS protocols published by the Open Mobile Alliance(OMA), 3GPP and 3GPP2, including the MMS Encapsulation, MM1, MM3, MM4 and MM7 protocols. MMS Encapsulation versions v1.0, v1.1, v1.2 and v1.3 are supported. 3GPP MM7 versions 5.3.0 through 6.13.0 are supported, in addition to several non-standard MM7 variations used by other major MMSC versions.

In order to best configure NowSMS to meet your MMS messaging needs, it is important to first have a basic understanding of how MMS works.
