TynTec signs with Regpoint to provide global disaster warning SMS network (12/2007)

December 3rd, 2007 - London, UK: TynTec, the mobile messaging services provider, today announces a deal with global healthcare and crisis IT specialist Regpoint to provide high volume SMS delivery for use in emergency situations. The agreement will see Regpoint using TynTec's custom-built messaging technology to send large numbers of SMS to quickly alert people of tsunamis, terrorist attacks, disease epidemics and other emergencies.

Using TynTec's custom-built SMSC and deep level (SS7) connection into the global telecoms network Regpoint can be assured of sending millions of 'Flash' SMS in short time frames, regardless of the recipient network operator. Flash SMS are especially good for emergency situations because they appear directly on the recipients screen, as opposed to going into the inbox. This means people signed up for the service, which includes government officials, emergency services and doctors, can receive timely warnings on impending disasters, allowing them to react as quickly as possible.

Because of TynTec's unique access into the global mobile telecoms network the company can guarantee direct delivery of the flash SMS' to more than 340 networks worldwide within 15 seconds. Therefore not only does TynTec allow Regpoint to issue a vast number of SMS, but also to ensure they are delivered to people roaming across different territories.

Sophia Salenius, CEO from Regpoint said "The TynTec platform gives us the powerful ability to guarantee the delivery of emergency SMS to a vast number of people throughout the globe, helping to save as many lives as possible in emergency situations.

"None of the operators we contacted had the capacity to send anywhere near this volume of SMS or had a similar global reach. TynTec's high volume SMS capability can throughput the millions of SMS required to get the flash messages out to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, as well as providing the reassurance that messages will not get lost along the way."

Michael Kowalzik, CEO of TynTec, said, "It is a validation of the strength of the TynTec offering that we are being used for a purpose as important as this. The fact that our messaging services are being used to save lives and safeguard people from dangerous situations underlines the capability of the TynTec messaging platform to deliver SMS as quickly as possible.


November 13th, 2007 - London, UK - Mobile messaging services provider TynTec ( today announces the launch of Supernet SMS-C, a new distributed SMS-Centre (SMS-C) architecture. With this new architecture TynTec is introducing a 'multi-homed' SMS-C capability as well as dynamic routing in the SS7 network, thus enabling TynTec to provide its customers with an improved quality of service in SMS transmission by having several delivery options through different hub operators.

Supernet SMS-C turns the traditional SMS-C architecture on its head. Operators have traditionally housed a single, monolithic SMS-C within their network to manage the reception and distribution of SMS messages to their subscribers. Supernet SMS-C instead operates small, distributed interface units within user networks, each reporting back to a single centralised SMS-C unit hosted on TynTec's own enterprise strength server system.

Supernet SMS-C effectively allows one SMS-C to operate in several hub operators' networks at the same time. The advantage of this model is that messages can be re-routed through lower cost network routes or simply re-directed to different routes for resilience, e.g. when a hub is down.

This distributed architecture also means that Supernet SMS-C can essentially provide SMS in a software as a service (SAAS) model, rather than an in-house technical process. As an outsourced service, Supernet SMS-C offers a number of benefits over an in-house SMS-C. As well as the reduced cost and management hassle associated with a managed service provision model, Supernet SMS-C means that operators can avoid getting trapped into the costly upgrade and replacement cycle inherent in the licensed software model.

As well as presenting a new outsourcing option for operators, the new SMS-C architecture also gives TynTec an unparalleled level of resilience in its own SMS operations. The structure enables the company to re-route SMS on the fly to any one of its operator partners using its portfolio of SS7 connections. In this way TynTec can futher 'armour plate' the delivery guarantees provided as part of its enterprise strength SMS offering.

Thorsten Trapp, CTO of TynTec, said: "Supernet is a true paradigm shift in SMS technology. For the first time we've moved away from the idea of the SMS-C as a piece of software towards seeing it as a managed service.

"The technical management of SMS is increasingly a non-core activity for operators and Supernet enables the reliable and cost-effective outsourcing of these processes with a distributed SMS-C architecture."

SMS Forum discontinues operation (7/2007)

The SMS Forum, a non-profit organization with a mission to develop, foster and promote SMS (short message service) to the benefit of the global wireless industry will disband by July 27, 2007, and take down its web site by the end of 2007.

Originally founded as the "Short Message Peer to Peer FORUM," the organization changed its name to the "SMS FORUM" to involve all sides of the mobile telecommunications industry in 2001. The SMS Forum fostered and promoted SMS for the benefit of the global wireless industry, facilitated easy development of SMS applications and services and provided access to the SMPP protocol specifications.

The SMS Forum served as a useful tool for the industry through its workshops and its liaise with other industry and standards organizations. Since its inception, the SMS Forum provided operators, solutions providers and developers with an important platform to exchange ideas and present solutions to the challenges that the industry faced. This process has been very effective and the maturity of SMS means that the need for further promotion of the standards is now no longer necessary.

Worldwide SMS revenues to hit $67bn (1/2007)

A new report from Portio Research forecasts a healthy future for SMS, which continues to be the star of the data services show with traffic volumes and revenues that continue to confound predictions. Although the growth of SMS revenues will not be as aggressive as the growth of SMS volumes due to declining prices, by 2012 global SMS revenues are expected to reach 67bn USD, driven by 3.7 trillion messages. The report, Mobile Messaging Futures 2007-2012 outlines an exciting future for other mobile messaging technologies especially instant messaging and mobile e-mail amid continued strong worldwide subscriber growth.

If there was one message this report should get across it is this: SMS continues to be a phenomenal success as the cheapest, quickest and easiest to use form of peer-to-peer mobile communication. Markets have continued to grow and greatly exceeded the predictions of similar research carried out in 2005. SMS traffic has not flattened out in mature markets but continued to boom whilst the US market has grown much faster than expected. The SMS market despite declining prices continues to be fuelled by new subscribers.

In Asia alone, in the five minutes it takes to read this press release and in every subsequent five minute period for the next six years, 2,267 people will have bought their first ever mobile phone. For the majority, these new handsets will offer little affordable functionality apart from basic voice and SMS services. This translates into an additional 1.4bn new mobile subscribers in Asia alone with a consequent boom in SMS traffic in the region.

By 2011, the report predicts, mobile instant messaging (MIM), especially in markets such as North America, will supplant SMS as the mainstream messaging service as smartphones and wireless Internet proliferate. Operators, the report suggests, need to strike a balance between SMS and IM pricing in order to prevent the cannibalisation of SMS revenues in the future.
