SMPP PDU Operation Definitions

The following SMPP PDU Operation Definitions are taken from the SMPP 3.4 specification.

  • enquire_link – This message can be sent by either the ESME or SMSC and is used to provide a confidence check of the communication path between an ESME and an SMSC.

  • submit_sm – This operation is used by an ESME to submit a short message to the SMSC for onward transmission to a specified short message entity (SME).

  • unbind_resp – The SMPP unbind_resp PDU is used to reply to an unbind request. It comprises the SMPP message header only.
