Public SMS Gateway Public gateways are often referred to as SMSC or SMS centers. The centers typically run a robust software application (like advanced versions of those mentioned above) and subscribe to a large database that allows for messages to be routed to appropriate carriers using appropriate settings. When using an SMSC sender incurs a per message charge. Cost will vary depending on SMSC used to send message but its not uncommon for it to cost .05 per message.
