Sending and receiving SMS messages programmatically


Hi everyone

Is it possible to send SMS messages programmatically with the MAX BR1 Pepwave router from a computer plugged into the router (e.g through AT commands or directly from the command line on the router)?

Thanks for your help!

Ability to receive SMS messages as notifications and respond to them

Sending SMS Command to control/retrieve information to/from MAX routers is not available at the moment.

Do you mind to share more details on your use case?


I have exactly the same request as athurf. I have a PC connected to the router. I want to send a custom SMS message from my PC to any phone number outside. Does the Peplink router provide an AT-Command for doing this, like its usual for GSM-Modules inside the PC ?


@cgqinno and @arthurf

Recently, we received a lot of request regarding to sending SMS via MAX devices. After discussed with Engineering team, they agreed to include the feature targeted for firmware version 7.2.0.

Balance series also? :grinning:


@Rick-DC, yes, it should apply to Balance models with embedded modem too. :wink:
