Wholesale messaging in telecommunications

The decline in Person-to-Person (P2P) wholesale messaging traffic following intense competition from OTT messaging services, is now being compensated with the rapid growth in Application-to-Person (A2P) traffic. The growing enterprise use cases for universal communications is generating exciting A2P business opportunities for messaging service providers – namely for marketing, engagement of customers and more recently for security and authentication. The rollout of next generation Rich Communication (RCS) messaging is expected to deliver even further revenue potential.

This growth in A2P messaging traffic coincides with more complex requirements to manage your wholesale messaging business. Wholesale messaging agreements are now more dynamic than ever before, and require intelligent SMS routing, SMS billing and SMS pricing capability to instantly update daily agreement changes and compete in this growing market.

Monetise your wholesale messaging business with confidence! iCONX lets you automate and manage your messaging supplier agreements, optimising routing plans to strike a balance between the cheapest and best quality route. Messaging pricelists can automatically be generated from the forecasted cost base – with billing and reconciling capability fully integrated into the same platform. The latest wholesale messaging trends are fully supported, including the next generation RCS messaging protocol.

Our wholesale messaging solution provides messaging and hubbing service providers with the commercial layer needed to implement a margin-rich trading solution for A2P!
