26 * SMPP packet sequence numbering scheme interface. Implementations of this
27 * interface provide a {@link org.mobicents.protocols.smpp.Session} with a unique number for
28 * each call to <code>nextNumber</code>. This number is used as the packet's
29 * sequence number in the SMPP header. The default implementation (
30 * {@link DefaultSequenceScheme}) counts monotonically from 1 upwards for each
31 * number requested. While this is the SMPP specification's recommended
32 * behaviour, there is no requirement for 2 sequentially-requested numbers to be
33 * numerically sequential.
