Six Ways to Implement SMS

Six Ways to Implement SMS

There are many ways you can easily implement an SMS service today, each with its own pros, cons, and idiosyncrasies. Some implementations are more suited to certain types of services than others.

In this final section we'll consider six ways you might implement an SMS service: aggregator, smartphone, email, Twitter, 411Synch, and Windows Live. There are, of course, many other options. Table 2 lists the six implementations we discuss, the type of service for which each is suited, and their relative cost, complexity, and scalability.
