Simplify P2P SMS messaging

SMS remains one of the most popular methods of communicating with any device on any mobile network, as ubiquity of reach continues to be a unique feature not available via any other messaging application today. Despite this, the P2P SMS industry is facing many challenges. There are over 950 mobile operators using multiple messaging solutions and access technologies. Maintaining all of these point-to-point relationships between multiple networks can become highly complex and resource intensive.

SMS has a 98% read rate, and 90% of messages are opened within three minutes
