SMS Gateway
« on: December 10, 2008, 01:44:55 PM »
My idea is to make an SMS Gateway that is able to send bulk sms messages to users or groups from the Opengoo platform.

So next to your new e-mail system an solid sms portal to connect to the telephone world.

there are an couple of providers that offer sms gateway's with great http API's you could use to connect to for the sms.

an example provider is: http://www.mollie.nl/geavanceerd/sms/http/  or http://www.clickatell.com/developers/clickatell_api.php
to get the gateway working the Opengoo user should get an account at one of the provided gateways and insert his account details in the Opengoo platform to start using it.

To keep it simple just give an option at E-mail to insert an sms gateway instead of an pop3 account.

( Maybe the Opengoo team can earn some money by cooperating with big sms profiders)

No comments yet, Another option is to use an mail to sms provider.

Make an compose sms page with an 160 characters max input box.
and an special subscribers input that inserts only the phonenumber + mail to sms provider.

with most cell phone providers you can already do this. For instance if i wanted to send an email to my cell phone i would address the email to 530xxxxxxx@vtext.com and it will send that email as a text message to my phone. AT&T have the same thing along with most other providers and if you want to reply back to the email message from your phone you just punch in the email address in the send to box on your phone. Just keep in mind that it is still limited to the standard limits of text messaging 160 characters and other things that i do not remember.

Doing a module along the lines of SendEmail which then pulls in one from a number of predefined "drivers" according to the local setup might be best. A number of common sms drivers can be provided, and anyone using something else, could plug in a new one.
For instance we have our own messaging connections with carriers, and some people might have a GSM modem/phone directly connected.

So this needs to be split into UI, which would be mostly if not exactly identical to how email notifications are done, while providing some flexibility on how the back end sends a message, since unlike email there is no standard way.
