Deutsche Telekom’s wholesale division and cloud company Nexmo have formed a partnership for mission-critical application-to-person (A2P) messaging.

The main customer will be members of the Deutsche Telekom group but the service will also be available to other companies. 

“We are happy to see that our SMS+ transit solution perfectly fits with Nexmo’s requirements for offering best in class cloud communications solutions, helping propel their customers’ business to the next level,” said Mardia van der Walt, senior vice president at Deutsche Telekom International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS).

The SMS+ transit service allows Nexmo to reach the mobile networks of Deutsche Telekom and its affiliates in Europe and outside of Deutsche Telekom’s footprint through partner networks. 

“With our SMS+ transit solution we deliver a proven technology that meets the substantial demand of Nexmo’s customers in a thriving A2P market,” said Van der Walt. “Nexmo is a partner that has both expertise in this space as well as proven technology that can meet the substantial demands of our customers.”

David Vigar, Nexmo’s director of carrier relations, said: “Through our new partnership with Deutsche Telekom ICSS we are expanding our cloud communication expertise to one of the fastest growing markets in Europe, opening a direct link to an effective business differentiator for enterprises locally and worldwide. Our partnership with Deutsche Telekom ICSS helps us give our customers global reach with local expertise, all through the simplest communication APIs and SDKs.”
