A Short Message Service Centre (SMS-C) is a network element in a Mobile Operator’s telephone network. Its purpose is to process Short Message Service (SMS) messages sent from the Operator’s subscribers to any phone number. For this, the SMS-C accepts, stores and delivers the SMS in PDU format via SS7 signalling. SMS-C and signalling via the SS7 network are not limited to Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), but rather to open technology.

An SMS-C is the beating heart of any SMS operation and its procurement, implementation and management, a business-critical operation.
