API Interface: HTTP API v4
The Aerialink HTTP API imposes two types of limits on the throughput use of our API unless special arrangements have been made. These limits exist to protect the Aerialink network as well as adhere to operator/carrier requirements. If you need your limits adjusted, please contact the Aerialink Support Team with a change request and an explanation for the change. Any violation of your account/resource limits may subject your service to immediate termination.
For more information about how our throughput rates are calculated, consult our Throughput Calculations Chart
The following is the Aggregate Maximum Request Limit for an HTTP conection.
- 100,000 requests p/day
- 3,000,000 requests p/month
All of the limits listed in the table below are of the specified unit (per second or per minute) per code of the type dictated in that row. Please note that for the purposes of the following table, anyone seeking information for location-neutral 8xx numbers should see the figures for long codes.
