Infobip Extends 2-Way SMS Messaging Coverage to 40 Countries

Mobile messaging and payments provider Infobip announced today it has extended its 2-way SMS messaging coverage to 40 countries, including the U.S., Brazil, China, India, Russia, South Africa and Mexico. Infobip customers now have access to one of the largest 2-way SMS coverage sets in the world, as supported by a single technical provider.

2-way SMS messaging enables online businesses, service providers, application developers, marketing agencies etc. to unlock the full potential of instant, time-sensitive mobile consumer interaction. 2-way SMS can help businesses create a dialogue with customers, drive sales and even manage something as straightforward as appointment booking.

For every country covered, Infobip can provide national numbers or short codes for receiving inbound SMS messages. Infobip also provides comprehensive front end management, reporting tools and high-quality performance and delivery over its proprietary platform, which processes over 1.5 billion SMS messages monthly. Connecting to Infobip’s infrastructure takes no time at all. It can be accessed over an SMS API, or through user-friendly web applications with campaign management features.

“The value of 2-way SMS has been demonstrated by the wide range of businesses now implementing it. Our 2-way SMS service has already been used for global reservations systems, CRM and customer service platforms and extended 2-factor authentication. In each of these cases businesses have improved reach and the level of customer interaction,” says Silvio Kutic, Infobip founder and CEO.

“Delivering a 2-way SMS service is about much more than providing a mobile number to receive SMS. Infobip also delivers technical expertise, consultancy and 24/7 technical support. We offer global and local support through our worldwide offices and we have close relationships with the mobile operators in those markets. Local presence enables us to leverage our local market knowledge, such as how businesses should address the different telecoms regulations that vary from country to country,” Kutic concluded.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
