My setup for this guide:
- Physical server running Windows 2008 R2 (64-bit)
- Wamp server (PHP, MySQL…)
- Huawei E230 USB 3G Modem
- Diafaan software
- MySQL connector ODBC 32-bit
Diafaan SMS Gateway
Diafaan is a SMS software for Windows-platform. Diafaan has support for several of «SMS modems/devices», like 3G modems, dedicated SMS gateways, android phone, etc…
They have some great manuals and reviews on different SMS-devices on their webpage.
Prices (at publishing date) is from $195 to $995. They have three versions: light, basic and full. The difference is mostly how many gateways and connector you can add.
Diafaan communication software dates back to 1992 on their homepage, and the have released 3-4 software updates each year for the last years. So they seems pretty serious of what their doing
