Firstly, a quick review of the SMPP "packet" and how the they fit together. The following elements of an SMPP message which we are interested in are as follows:
- GSM Features (This is where the User Data Header Indicator will be set if required)
- User Data Length
- User Data
- User Data Header Length
- User Data Header
Where, TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is the transport protocol for the SMPP packets and encoded within the SMPP message are the following TLVs (Tag Length Value) which we are interested in:
- UDHI = User Data Header Indicator
