Today we want to share with you another way to make money in telecommunication in Iran – termination of SMS messages. SMS termination is the delivery of international SMS messages, as well as SMS messages from the Internet, through local Iranian SIM cards of mobile operators.
In our previous articles we talked a lot about what GSM termination of voice traffic is, how to conduct this business correctly and how much you can earn in such a project.
We recall briefly: GSM-termination is the delivery of international mobile calls to the final subscriber through local SIM cards of mobile operators. You may have encountered similar activity in everyday life when you expect a call from another country, but on the screen of your mobile you see the home local number of the mobile operator. This is the nature of GSM terminators.
Let’s get back to SMS termination. The principle is the same as for voice traffic termination. For example, a person from Germany wants to write an SMS to Iran. He writes the text of the SMS, choose the phone number of Iranian recipient and presses the “send” button. After that, his SMS gets to his mobile operator, whose SIM card he uses. And then the German mobile operator chooses the route by which it will deliver this SMS message to Iran.
This route should have a good price / quality ratio. Therefore, such SMS is cheaper and more reliable to deliver via the Internet network, with the assistance of transit operators (carriers). And the carrier must also choose a further route for the delivery of SMS messages to Iran. And the most profitable and high-quality route are GSM-terminator systems (consisting of GSM-gateways and SIM-boxes).
Brief estimate of SMS termination to Iran
A the transit operator sends this SMS to the GSM terminator system.
- Operator pays him for each SMS the international cost of $0.0048.
- A GSM terminator, pays for only the local cost for the same SMS message, according to the tariff (https://www.rightel.ir/basic-tariff) local SMS in Iran costs only $0.0025.
- A margin from each SMS is $0.0023. And each SIM card transmits about 500 SMS per day.
- Systems for termination use simultaneously 100 SIM cards and more, so the daily wage will be from $100. This is not bad, isn’t it?
By the same principle, mass SMS mailings from various Internet services work: Facebook, Instagram, online banking, online shopping and much more. Every day, these services make millions of SMS to their subscribers. Therefore, the greater the volume of the SIM-bank has the GSM-terminator, the more SMS can be passed by the system simultaneously, the Higher the profit.
Well, if you want to squeeze the maximum profit from the work of each SIM card in your system, then the combined termination option will suit you: voice traffic + SMS. The ANTRAX system allows you to simultaneously pass voice and SMS traffic. At the same time, ANTRAX has a very simple and convenient user interface that allows you to track and calculate every missed minute and SMS, view detailed statistics and reports on the operation of the system.
Another way to use the ANTRAX system in the direction of SMS is to do bulk SMS sending. Our technical support team will create a ready-made script for sending SMS, as well as ANTRAX can be integrated with various online platforms for bulk SMS sending.
