A bind in the specific case of connecting to CLX via SMPP is a single connection using the SMPP protocol. There are three ways to open a connection using SMPP. You can connect as:
- Transmitter – send short messages to the SMSC and receive responses from SMSC
- Receiver – receive delivery receipts from the SMSC and return the corresponding responses
- Transceiver – send and receive messages to and from the SMSC over a single SMPP session
