How do I set the TLV parameters for mBlox in the SMS Server?


To set the required TLV’s or optional parameters for mBlox (“mblox_tariff” and “mblox_operator”), you have to perform the following steps:

  • Open the Auron SMS Server Manager Application;
  • In the treeview on the left, click the “Channels” item.
  • In the communication channel view, click the pencil behind the SMPP channel you want to setup.
  • The “SMPP Channel Properties” window is now displayed. Click the “Advanced Settings…” button.
  • In the “Advanced SMPP Settings” window, select “v 3.4” for the protocol version and click the “Message TLV’s…” button.
  • In the “TLV List” window, click the “Add…” button.

mblox_tariff:
The mblox tariff is a 5 digit number which should be entered encoded as OCTET data.
This means that you will need the hexadecimal values of the ASCII codes that represent the numbers.
For example, the number: 12345 will should be entered as “3132333435”.
To convert your tariff id to OCTET data simply take every digit of your id and put a ‘3’ in front of it.

Follow these steps to add your converted tariff value:

  • Set “Tag” to “Custom TLV”
  • Set “Tag Number” to “0x1403”
  • Set “Type” to “OCTET”
  • Set “Value” your converted tarif number, for instance: 3132333435.
  • Click “OK” to save the setting.

mblox_operator:
The mblox operator is a 5 digit number which should be entered encoded as OCTET data.
This means that you will need the hexadecimal values of the ASCII codes that represent the numbers.
For example, the number: 12345 will should be entered as “3132333435”.
To convert your operator id to OCTET data simply take every digit of your id and put a ‘3’ in front of it.

Follow these steps to add your converted operator value:

  • Set “Tag” to “Custom TLV”
  • Set “Tag Number” to “0x1402”
  • Set “Type” to “OCTET”
  • Set “Value” your converted operator number, for instance: 3132333435.
  • Click “OK” to save the setting.

You should be able to send messages via mBlox SMPP provider now.
