You can set the message type to 'sms.unicode' for each individual message, for example with the HTTP API:

Thanks again Henk.. But is it possible to use unicode on selective number only, or only global config? Thanks

You can force the SMPP Gateway to send a message with Unicode encoding when you send it with message type 'sms.unicode'.

To set the default message type to Unicode, change the 'MessageType' property in the advanced settings of the SMPP Gateway to 'Unicode'.

Hi Henk,

Thank you for your assistance.

We have receive that provider support UCS2. But, May we know how to manually change the setting to UCS2 coding scheme?

Upon checking on charactersetreceive, charactersetsend and charactersendDCS I havent seen UCS2 on the options.

Thanks

The SMPP Gateway in Diafaan SMS Server uses the GSM 03.08 character set by default. When the message contains a character that is not in the GSM 03.08 character set, it uses Unicode (UCS2). It is also possible to use the ISO 8859-1 character set for standard messages because some SMPP servers use this character set instead of GSM 03.08.

For messages with Chinese or Arabic characters there is no alternative for using Unicode encoding. If your SMPP service does not support this then it is not possible to send messages with Chinese or Arabic characters. However, you can set the 'MessageType' property in the advanced settings of the SMPP Gateway to 'StandardText' to filter out all characters that are not part of the GSM 03.08 character set. This way you can still send messages that contain only a few special characters.

An SMPP service provider should be able to handle messages with both the GSM 03.08 character set and the Unicode character set if you want to send messages in different languages and character systems.

Also we are using SMPP connection to gateway provider.

Based on my research there are few options: default, IA5 & iso-8859-1 is this correct... Upon checking on diafaan server, Default is 0 = UCS2 charater set? 3for ISO-8859/ISO-8859-15 so I have only 2 options? meaning we cannot use the said "8bit ASCII character-set" they requested?

If your client sending different laguage meaning its uses different characters. what would be the best setting to use on our sms diafaan server?

Also need you advice, In finding new provider.. What are the basic question we need to ask before we conduct the testing so we could lessen the issue.

1. Can support smpp protocol?
2. Supported encodings are GSM 03.08 and UCS2 (Unicode)?
3. You supoort gateway to different countries?
4. Blocking of content?

thanks

Hi good day!

We are trying to setup and now conducting test with the provider. But currently some messages failed to receive by the phone/number. Note also the most messages sent are different language. Chinese,English,etc

According to the operator partner message were sent with UCS2 data coding scheme and they dont support that.

they want to test using 8bit ASCII character-set..

May I know what is this for UCS2 data coding scheme & 8bit ASCII character-set?
Meaning the default of Diafaan is UCS2? What would be the effect changing this one?
