Zabbix supports the sending of SMS messages using a serial GSM modem connected to Zabbix server's serial port.

Zabbix has been tested with these GSM modems:
To configure SMS as the delivery channel for messages, you also need to configure SMS as the media type and enter the respective phone numbers for the users.
To configure SMS as the media type:
The following parameters are specific for the SMS media type:
|GSM modem||Set the serial device name of the GSM modem.|
See common media type parameters for details on how to configure alert processing options. Note that parallel processing of sending SMS notifications is not possible.
