Authentication

API Interface: SMPP API Version 3.4

Authentication

Authentication is required to access the Aerialink SMPP API. The authentication requirements consist of two layers; Firewall and Credentials which are described below.

Firewall

Prior to accessing the Aerialink SMPP API, all accounts must white list their network server specific IP addresses (/32) or network subnet (/subnet). This can be done within the Aerialnk Platform portal under the Authentication section within the API area.

Credentials

All SMPP API connections require a SystemID and Password to be able to establish your bind to our gateway. Your credentials can be obtained within the Aerialnk Platform portal under the Authentication section within the API area.

Note that some accounts may have multiple credential sets depending on your specific configuration which you may have requested. Subsequently each credential set may have different related permissions to API resources or associated resource assets such as Short Codes, Long Codes, or Alphanumeric Codes used for Messaging services.

Bind Configuration

See SMPP Configuration for a complete list of recommended settings for your SMPP bind.

SMPP Official Specification

For details on the SMPP Specification, see SMPP API Specification Version 3.4.

Troubleshooting

If you are having trouble authenticating with the Aerialink API confirm that you have white listed your IP address and that your API credentials are correct. You can view the API Authentication Error Log under Reports in the APi section of the Platform portal. This will confirm whether your authentication requests are being rejected or not.
