Enterprise Messaging Gateway (EMG) is a faster, easier, and more engaging messaging service for businesses to communicate with customers than traditional SMS.

It is highly secure and customizable, flexible, reliable and cost-efficient, and provides an advanced, multi-threaded and very efficient messaging platform.

Below is some more detail on the impressive performance you can expect from Enterprise Messaging Gateway, as well as how Soprano is helping customers leverage its vast capabilities to improve customer engagement.

How Enterprise Messaging Gateway improves on standard SMS messaging systems


Enterprise Messaging Gateway (EMG) is a powerful and configurable SMS gateway, message router and protocol converter. It provides connectivity between applications, SMSCs and other messaging entities, with short message peer-to-peer (SMPP) protocol that ensures a highly secure experience.

EMG primarily targets operators and service providers/aggregators, and supports well over a thousand messages per second, over multiple connectors.

With Enterprise Messaging Gateway, businesses can create a two-way dialog with customers that effectively boosts customer engagement. Furthermore, the flexibility of the SMS Access Manager allows you to customise it to best suit your business needs with a choice of wireless, dial-up or SMPP access.

EMG can be used for outbound message delivery, usually with a slightly different set of security controls in place filtering, archiving and antivirus are often applied to outbound email).

In this scenario, the enterprise mail system hands all internet-bound mail to the gateway, which then takes responsibility for delivering it.

The benefits of using Enterprise Messaging Gateway

The benefits of using text messaging services like EMG are expansive, but the three most significant are:

  1. Speed. Delivering messages to your clients is one thing, but doing it in a quick and timely manner is very important. 90% of SMS messages are read within the first three minutes of being received.
  2. Cost-effectiveness. With an online SMS platform, you can send SMS messages for just a few cents.
  3. Reliability. SMS is one of the most reliable communication channels in the world.
