The AT&T Network Services Gateway Sandbox provides applications access to AT&T's network and the following network services through a set of corresponding web services:
- SMS - This web service enables applications to send and receive short messages as well as obtain details on the delivery status of messages sent.
- MMS - This web service enables applications to send and receive multimedia messages as well as obtain details on the delivery status of messages sent.
- WAP Push - This web service enables applications to send messages using WAP Push technology.
- Terminal Location - This web service enables applications to request the location of an individual terminal.
- Device Capability - This web service enables applications to request details on the capabilities of a terminal (mobile device). This service is not part of the bundle of services available to the university program as of now.
While access to these services is free, there are limitations for each application in terms of request frequency and number of requests made per day and developers should keep these in mind when writing their applications. More information on these limits can be found in the developer guides for each service and the Quick Start Guide attached to this page.
Also, since these services are utilizing AT&T's network, they can only be used with AT&T subscribers as targets.The university program gives us access to the "Basic" bundle of services which only allows the use of the services with respect to a single AT&T number for each application which is added to the application's "White List". When an application sends a request, the subscriber number is matched with the one on the White List and only if a match is found, does the request go through.
