Communication within IoT takes place almost exclusively via data traffic. However, it makes sense to offer the use of SMS in some cases. Two such classic examples are found in wake-up and fall-back use cases.
Wake-up call: IoT devices are often put into standby state to save energy. To awaken these devices again, an SMS that functions as a wake-up call can be used. This brings the IoT device back into operating mode and it can send data again.
Fall-back: If mobile data transmission is not possible, SMS can be used as a back-up solution to ensure the communication flow continues.
Mobile Terminated (MT) or Mobile Originated (MO) SMS are used for communication between the IoT device and 1NCE Connectivity Management Platform. Thus, only communication between the 1NCE platform and device is possible. However, SMS forwarding can be set up in our 1NCE customer portal.
