SMS Traffic On The Increase
As total SMS traffic is expected to surpass 2 Trillion by end of 2008 (according to a Gartner report), we can expect to see traffic being routed within a network, SMS applications and across mobile networks and countries. Mobile Operators can benefit from this opportunity by exploring a new revenue stream that allows them to provide SMS traffic reselling services. With this in mind, Mobile Operators would require a flexible SMS Gateway that would be able to provide connectivity to multiple SMS Partners, both other Mobile Operators and Messaging Service Providers. As different parties will have systems of different connection method, a multi-protocol system with flexible routing mechanism that allows connectivity to different SMSCs & SMS systems is required. This is where Mocean SMS Gateway steps in to provide the perfect solution.
