Announcing the Release of TelScale SMSC 6.2.2.GA

SMSCTeleStax is pleased to announce the latest release of TelScale SMSC 6.2.2.GA. This release is an exciting milestone in our continued strive to produce quality software that will contribute to our customer’s success.
This latest release comes packed with new features that will ensure better user experience.
  • Lightweight pass-through mode : Gateway can be configured for sending of only SMPP originated datagramm and transactional messages and does not need to install any database.
  • Message processing rules : Introduces of message processing (mproc) rules. Each rule contains a set of conditions (like destination address mask). If an incoming message fits to the conditions then rule actions will be applied to the message (like adding a prefix into a destination address or networkId changing). There is a default implementation of mproc rules which covers some cases. But users can implement their own custom set of mproc rules by implementing of java interfaces exposed by SMSC.
  • Diameter rejections : When Diameter server rejects an incoming message then SMSC Gateway will send those rejects as responses back to an message originator
    (for SMPP and MO originated messages). So the message originator will know if the message is accepted or not.
  • Fixing of GSM7 messages encoding issues : Fixed several issues of GSM7 encoding errors in case of two-septets characters (like “[” or “]”) are present or in the case when the last part of a splitted message is short.
  • GSM7 encoding at SMPP part : Gateway  supports now GSM7 encoding at SMPP part (in addition to UTF-8 and Unicode encoding)
  • Preconfigured HLR address : There is now a possibility of using a special pre-configured HLR address instead of MSISDN for SCCP CalledPartyAddress in SRI request.
  • National Language Shift Tables : SMSC Gateway now supports National Language Shift Tables which are used in encoding of GSM7 characters.
  • Message restrictions for ESMEs : SMSC Gateway now supports minimal/maximal message length and rate per a second (a minute, a hour, a day) limits per ESME.
  • GSM message classes : SMSC Gateway now supports dest_addr_subunit parameter at SMPP part. This parameter specifies GSM message classes.
  • New license library : Switched to license library 2.2.3, which is by default off-line.
