Does anyone knows if PI Notifications could work with Amazon Web Services?
I need to deliver SMS Notifications, but my local phone operator does not offer this service.
Looking at the Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) it seems it only supports SMS messages within the US. Not sure that will resolve your problem as it appears you are based in Brazil?
Anyway, the API is not that easy to use. Ideally (when the # of SMS you need to send is relatively low, so not thousands an hour) you need a simple webservice to call directly from the PI Notifications WebService endpoint.
My best bet would be to look for any supplier that can do simple SMS gateway services for your country through a webservice. or fi you build something yourselves, hook up an Android phone to a PC and use some SW to send messages thorugh that phone. Google around for ideas on that.
I use WinSMS in South Africa, they do international numbers as well including email-sms gateway, give them a try. What I like about them is that you can set a authenticated email, this enable me to free the subject field, majority use subject field as part of the cell no. With this I can use use the same message for email and sms.
Did some googling for "SMS gateway Brasil" and found a slew of results.
A nive example: Bulk SMS Brazil | BulkSMS.com
Rest-based API: HTTP to SMS API (EAPI) | BulkSMS.com
Manual: submission/send_sms - EAPI - BulkSMS.com
I will look your suggestions.
I heard about Amazon Solution at last saturday during my specialization class, so I need to learn more about it. I was thinking about develop an Android and iOS application to use the push notifications if the Amazon solution be able to read the xml file created by PI Notifications.
Anyway, thanks for the tips.
If I advance about it, i will pots here.

This is quite an old thread but having struggled to get this working recently I want to point anyone attempting it to this post that explains how to enable basic authentication on AWS API Gateway. This allows it to accept posts from PI Notifications using the standard REST WebService delivery channel in AF 2017:
