Introducing our High Throughput SMS Gateway API

Introducing our High Throughput SMS Gateway API

Burst SMS has been offering a high performance REST SMS API for many years now. As we continue to refine our products based on customer feedback, we saw the need for a higher throughput API focused on an increase in SMS send speed. That’s why we’ve developed an upgraded high performance Bulk SMS Gateway API.

If you’re looking for more technical information on our new high throughput API, see our API Reference Guide on Postman.

Who is this new API for?

We’ve developed this upgraded, easy to integrate Bulk SMS Gateway API with the expert user in mind. This upgraded Bulk SMS Gateway API is perfect for businesses with a development team looking for a no-fuss, high-speed service that purely focuses on end to end reliability, enterprise security, and performance. This performance-driven API has no user interface, giving you full flexibility to easily integrate with existing tools or bespoke applications.

Businesses who run large scale or time-critical campaigns need a more reliable messaging experience when sending out mass messages such as nationwide emergency alerts or global marketing campaigns. High-throughput is essential for campaigns like these.

For those who don’t need high throughput sending and want more extensive features such as a native reporting dashboard, Zapier integrations, and SMS keywords, check out our all around REST SMS-API instead.

Key Features and Benefits

Our API uses direct carrier connections, which allows for a higher send volume with the same delivery and security guarantee as our REST API. It has high-speed direct connections to MNOs (Mobile Network Operators) such as Telstra, Optus and Vodafone in Australia and internationally.

All our products also ensure a 100% message delivery guarantee and a 99.99% uptime. Burst SMS is also ISO 27001, GDPR, and HIPAA certified, so you can rest assured that your data is safe with us.

In addition, our new upgraded API supports multiple messaging channels such as SMS, MMS, and more. This is a very powerful tool, and we’ve ensured its performance so you can rely on it to deliver the results you need.

Webhook Management

All of this comes with complete webhook management. With webhook management, users can manage their webhook configuration without depending on Burst SMS. They can subscribe to one or several events, retrieve webhooks, update them, or even delete them as necessary.
