OTT messaging and A2P messaging
OTT messaging, such as Whatsapp, took the world by storm by replacing P2P messaging. In turn, enterprises and SMBs are steadily increasing their use of A2P messaging for their businesses.
According to Juniper Research, “the global SMS market will be worth around $112.9 billion by 2019”.
There has been an increase in demand from more operators and aggregators seeking opportunities to increase their SMS revenue streams. Typically, they partner with domestic and global A2P messaging service providers.
Here are the top 3 factors you should look out for when finding suitable A2P partners:
1) Routing expertise
A reliable partner carefully curates its pool of partners and connectivity providers. This is to ensure that their customers enjoy first-class connectivity for every single country that they cover.
Wavecell does just that. We consistently build solid relationships with local carriers and main telecoms players. This is to maintain a high-quality level and maintain an awareness of the local constraints. A reliable partner can best-adapt the routing configurations enabling your business operations.
2) Secured and scalable technology and constant innovation
Companies involved in the A2P SMS business, definitely require a secured and stable platform. This is to deal with the routings, potential security threats, reports/statuses and more.
Wavecell takes our platform seriously by constantly evolving over the last 5 years towards the highest industry standards. Our internal R&D team priority is to constantly optimize our scalability, connectivity, deliverability performances and maintaining high-security standards whilst deploying innovative solutions.
3) Consider partners with a growing regional presence and a proven track-record
To optimize your A2P revenue streams, work with the right partners who are strong in their areas of focus. Including a proven and ever-improving track record. Does the partner have a substantial client database or is able to ensure the delivery of high-volumes of SMS traffic?
