It is on the suffix modal that the pull platform for SMS is based. The suffix modal is for any short code having a suffix or just any short code for which there exists a particular application for processing that request. After the processing of that application takes place, the response message is sent back to the pull platform so that it can be sent back to the customer.
It is on the basis of the multiple nodes that that the complete pull platform works. It has the facility for running instances in multiples for each and every node. The dedicated short code and the shared code are the pull platforms used. The only difference is the configuration of the keyword done on the shared short code. Its availability has to be checked and accordingly the keyword has to be created at the end of the service provider.
Customers are able to create keywords of their own on the short codes dedicated. At the same time alias can be defined to it. Characteristics of the SMS pull platform service includes shared and or dedicated numbers, using protocols for server interfacing, managing SMS in thousands, usage of command keys for managing automated answers and management of data via the web application.
