Vodafone and Telefonica in SMS deal

02 November 2015 |

In what is claimed to be an industry first, Vodafone and Telefonica Business Solutions have directly connected their respective wholesale SMS messaging hubs.

In an emailed statement to Capacity, Vodafone said that the partnership is a result of the explosive growth in application to person (A2P) messaging.

“This move will see both companies’ customers benefiting from an improvement in quality, a reduction in fraudulent activity and an expansion in network reach”, the company said.

Vodafone launched its global messaging hub in May this year, designed to service the SMS requirements of its global customer base.
