smsROUTER is a component of smsPULSE and smsPULSE MM. It also runs on the standard version of smsPULSE but only for the purpose of outbound queues monitoring.
The purpose of the smsROUTER is to provide intelligent yet easy to use processing of incoming messages. The router processes SMS messages received into sms.IN via the attached GSM device. System administrators and developers can affect how the smsROUTER responds to incoming messages by implementing routing rules. A built-in rule in smsROUTER will attempt to deliver a message by email to the most recent sender of a text message to the mobile user.
From version 7.5.0 of smsPULSE, the smsROUTER and smsPULSE tasks can work in distributed mode. The server that devices are attached to will initiate replication to another server, say a web server, where actual message processing takes place. The opposite may happen to a sending server, say a web server, which, instead of sending messages, will initiate replication to the "Outbound Server" on-demand. This allows for message processing to take place on a server installed in a virtual environment or on a web server where devices may not be attached. In the system profile, update the server names, as below. For example:
In the Web UI interface:
And in the Notes interface:
Router Rules enable work-flow processing of messages, in real time. They allow you to:
