A prerequisite for a successful messaging business
Have you ever wondered where an SMS comes from? What is its route from the sender to the receiver?
Unquestionably, most people think that it is a direct path, from the sender’s mobile network operator to the receiver’s MNO. The truth is though much more complex than that.
If you dive into the world of messaging business, you will discover the world of SMS Aggregators, MNOs, SMS resellers etc. And what is common for all successful telecom players in the messaging field is a powerful tool – the SMS Platform. Initially, when SMS was invented as a medium of written communication, its development path was quite challenging. During the first decade, the low adoption of SMS by mobile users was due to the fact that SMS could be exchanged only within the same network. With the upgrade of SMS service, so messages could be sent to phone numbers using different operators, new challenges like billing and restrictions occurred.
Having in mind all the challenges that the telecommunication industry was facing regarding messaging technology, a small company with a strong idea was established- to make it possible for users to send SMS via an application that they could access through a browser.
Back in 2001, it might have seemed like a utopia for some people but with a firm belief in the power of the message, HORISEN developed its very first SMS Platform.
