MT (Mobile Terminated) – message transmission from a client (program) or an application to the end user’s handset.

MT messaging service is widely used in different fields :

1.Flight / Booking alerts and confirmations

2.Banking (transaction alert, balance update, password change etc)

3.Ads and coupons (promotional)

4.Verification messages (Registration codes for apps)



Basic MT flow


In reality though, to be able to send a message between a PC (or other app) and mobile handset, you would need to use messaging service of SMS Gateway Providers. And the overall flow would look a bit more complicated :


The message is sent from the CLIENT’s app or server to SureM’s platform, forwarded then to the respective carrier and all the way to the handset.
