Anam Technologies selected by Deutsche Telekom as A2P SMS filtering partner
February 2017 by Marc Jacob
Anam Technologies is delighted to announce their partnership with Deutsche Telekom International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS) to provide comprehensive managed A2P SMS filtering services to the international mobile operator customers of ICSS. The joint initiative will deliver services that protect mobile networks from SMS abuse and unwanted SMS traffic by blocking A2P messages sent via unauthorized channels.
The ICSS Signaling for International Roaming solution provides access to over 800 mobile networks in more than 200 countries. The combined solution of Anam and Deutsche Telekom ICSS boasts a broad range of dynamic traffic filtering capabilities based on real-time monitoring. The suite of managed services delivers in-depth A2P traffic analysis and reporting, management of filtering rules and grey route identification.
According to Mobilesquared, the A2P messaging sector was worth $17.21 billion as of the end of 2016, with that amount expected to rise to $58.75 billion by 2020. During that timeframe, the average enterprise-SMS communication will double from 0.5 per day and per subscriber to 1 per day, on a global basis. However, it has also been predicted that the revenue leakage caused by grey-route messaging will cost upwards of $82 billion between 2015-2020.
