Application-to-Person (A2P) SMS message volumes are experiencing double-digit annual growth. According to Ovum’s report “Leveraging the A2P SMS Opportunity, 2016”, these volumes are expected to reach 1.3 trillion in 2018. Enterprise customers demand excellent service levels with security and fraud protection for their mission critical use of ‘application to person’ - A2P SMS (e.g., bank alerts, delivery reminders, two-factor authentication, surveys). Reliable, quality and cost-effective delivery to mobile end users is vital to this market.
