Project Description

We have to send text messages to a number of users at a time. The software will have the following functionality.
Nokia 6310I phone connected to PC by serial cable.

The program will be in 2 parts.

Part 1.

Read a text file from a directory and send a text message to the recipients.

Part 2

Receive a text message via SMS and then resend that message to a distribution list.

There will be an access database, this will contain the distribution lists. Messages that need sending. Logging etc. All messages received and sent will be stored in the access database.


## Deliverables

More information on SMS system.

Broken down into parts.

1. An application that will look at an access database and send messages via SMS.

2. An application that will receive receipts and enter them in the database linkning them to the sent message.

3. An application that will recieve message by SMS and enter it into the database as a number of messages to different numbers. Like a mailing list

4. An application that will monitor a directory on the local machine and upload messages that have been created in a text file. Contents to be agreed.

3 and 4 May be sent to 1 or more numbers. The access database will contain a mailing list entry. i.e. ALL USERS this will contain all the users numbers. A record will be created in the message table for each seperate message that needs sending. And then sent by the sending program.

If required 2 phones can be used on e to send and one to receive. It would be the programmers responsability to manage both of the phones by software.

All programs need to be run from a command line i.e. windows scheduler. If the program "crashes" it will recover next time it ran etc.

Logging will be supplied for all messages sent and received. receipts, retry, failure etc.

Messages over the 160 limit will be sent as two or more seperate messages. The message text will be alltered to add "more ...." to the end of the first message and "....More" to the begining of the next message. If the message is broken into more than 2 messages the system will show. 1/3 2/3 3/3 at the begining of the message to allow the user to understand the order and notice if a part is missed.

If 2 phones are used the system must show the correct phone number on the sending for the reply and the receipt.

Richard

Win 2000

Other configs by agreement. We cannot use a online web based system etc. This must be a standalone system. The system must recevive receipts and mark the message as confirmed
3. An application that will recieve message by SMS and enter it into the database as a number of messages to different numbers. Like a mailing list

4. An application that will monitor a directory on the local machine and upload messages that have been created in a text file. Contents to be agreed.
