SMS on 2G, 3G, 4G

Hello dears,
what counters should I monitor to count number of sent SMS during a period of time (80 millions during 3 hours) in 2G, 3G, 4G. I should mention that the network uses Huawei. the network doesn’t support VoIP.

SMS count from core (feedback from a friend in Huawei)

in RAN side (BSC,RNC,eNodeB) I think is not possible to know since it’s send as signaling to UE/MS. Maybe need to take a look in MSC counters.

Thanks but What if I want to monitor its impact on RAN?

Thanks a lot…does it have any impact on RAN?

It does have little impact on RAN capacity since it’s signaling. You have to take a look to NAS signaling messages on air interface, some of them are SMS. There is no way to count them on RAN side.
