Send and receive SMS in MSSQL Server 2012/2014
If you have installed Ozeki NG SMS Gateway software on your computer then you can start to setup your SMS system. To send SMS messages from MSSQL Server 2012/2014 you need to do the follows: First create a database and then create two database tables in this created database for the outgoing and incoming messages: "ozekimessageout" and "ozekimessagein" in MS SQL. Then you need to configure Ozeki NG SMS Gateway to connect to the database and use these database tables for sending and receiving SMS messages. After the configuration you can start to send messages by inserting a record into "ozekimessageout" database table using an SQL INSERT. Ozeki NG SMS Gateway reads this record with the help of an SQL SELECT and it will send out your message as an SMS to mobile phones. It uses a GSM modem attached to the PC or it connects directly to the SMS center of the mobile service provider over the Internet (IP SMS).
