The SMS Modem sets the default baud rate "9600" for a communication port so that it can send an SMS via the SMS provider connection, resulting from the settings made in the command parameters.

defVar --name commPort --type String --value COM4
defVar --name transmissionRate --type Numeric --value 9600
defVar --name providerSMS --type SmsProvider
// Connects to the modem.
modemConnect --portname "${commPort}" --baudrate ${transmissionRate} --timeout 00:01:00 providerSMS=value
smsSend --provider ${providerSMS} --from "+14255550100" --to "+14255550122" --text "SMS Test"


For its correct operation, the Modem must be installed and plugged into the machine that will run the runtime, configured on the correct COM port, an active and signed GSM chip, in addition to a valid credit or SMS package.
