Our SMS API offers a variety of features out of the box. From the largest outbound network, high quality routing options, dedicated short codes and many more. Dive in to get an overview of all the features tyntec's SMS API has to offer.

SMS Features

1. Smart Routing Engine

Our routing engine offers maximum efficiency and optimal delivery automatically build in.

2. Smart message encoding

Detect Unicode characters like quotes and long dashes and replace them with similar GSM encoded characters, helping you to avoid sending two messages instead of one.

3. Long Message & Character Support

SMS messages longer than 160 characters are delivered as a single message to offer an enhanced customer experience. We support all modern and historic scripts.

4. Branded Experience

Use branded sender IDs to help your customers recognize – and trust – the sender. For your added security, you can access our service with SSL and VPN.

5. Over-Length SMS

tyntec accepts messages up to 3000 encoded characters per request by default and automatically splits over-length messages into deliverable parts.

Upon request this feature can be deactivated and tyntec will reject all requests that contain messages being too long to be submitted to subscribers in one part.

6. Scheduled Delivery

Customer can specify when a message delivery should start and for how long tyntec should retry delivery in case the first delivery attempt fails.

7. Flexible Sender ID

tyntec does not impose restrictions on sender IDs by default. Upon request tyntec can limit the usage to numeric sender IDs only.

8. User Context

Customer is able to set a user context per request which is parsed at all times when information related to the respective request is exchanged.

9. Live Number Resolution of Recipient Number

tyntec performs a live number resolution before each SMS delivery to ensure correct routing even in cases of porting.

10. Lookup Information of Destination Network

tyntec returns the resolution result of the destination network by default. The information is given as IMSI prefix (mccmnc) and tyntec operator ID (ttId)

11. Immediate Price Information After Delivery

tyntec immediately returns the price of the request after completion.

12. GSM Error Codes

tyntec returns network error codes by default revealing detailed information on delivery issues.

13. Intermediate DLRs

Customer is able to retrieve an intermediate message notification in case the first delivery attempt fails and the message delivery goes into retry (“BUFFERD”).

14. Automatic Sender ID Adjustment

tyntec offers the feature to automatically replace sender IDs for destination networks that impose restrictions on sender IDs causing the message delivery to fail without the replacement.

15. Subscription Based Time Zone

Upon request tyntec can adjust all provided time stamps adjusted to the time zone of the subscription network of the destination number.
