USSD module and connection to TELCO using SMPP

Post by mow8989 » Sat Jan 25, 2014 3:00 pm

Hello members,

We would like to find out where to download or setup USSD Module.
Ussd module is included in the supported channel of mobile banking features on your site, but we couldn't find the module on cyclos website. Please let us know if it's possible or not to use USSD channel at the moment.

Our other question is that we have an SMS short code number assigned from our local Telco provider, but the connection protocol for the short code is SMPP. Is it possible to connect cyclos sms functionality to our short code through SMPP protocol?

Would you please reply the SMPP question?

We have an SMS short code number assigned from our local Telco provider, but the connection protocol for the short code is SMPP. Cyclos documentation states that it's possible to connect and talk to TELCO through SMPP connection.
Would you please give us a step by step instruction of setting up and using sms functionality usin SMPP?

Thanks

Connecting with SMPP would require a specific driver. This is not included in current distributions.
It specific driver could be developed, but because of other priorities we cannot do this.

Am waiting for a USSD module that simply ;

1. Open account
2. Manage Account
3. Transfer/Pay

USSD should be priority. It is more secure that SMS and is the most popular banking platform in developing markets. Does the Clyclos have an actual timeline to have USSD available?
