    How this solution works

    To be able to send SMS messages from Joomla first you need to download and install Ozeki NG SMS Gateway software. You also need to download Ozeki SMS module, as well. After the installation processes you need to follow the steps of our configuration guide below on this page to configure your SMS system. After a few steps of configuration a form will appear on your web site that can be used to send SMS messages. Visitors just need to enter the phone number of the recipient or recipients, compose a message and click on "Send" button to send out the message.

    As you can see on Figure 1 Ozeki NG SMS Gateway forwards SMS messages from Joomla web sites to mobile phones. It connects to the mobile network either with a GSM modem attached to the PC with a datacable; or it connects directly to the SMS center of mobile service provider over the Internet (IP SMS connection).
