Public sector entity Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL) has signed an agreement with Syniverse Technologies for SMS interoperability solution.
As per the deal, Syniverse will provide SMS Interoperability to enable BSNL connect to numerous mobile phone operators worldwide without multiple individual commercial agreements to establish those connections, a statement said.
SMS will automatically become available as the subscribers connect to the Syniverse SMS Hub. The routing of SMS messages also includes mobile number portability and routing capabilities for a range of GSM, CDMA and TDMA networks.
"Global reach has become a critical component of any operator's SMS service, but establishing separate bilateral relationships among the world's approximately 1,000 mobile operators would be costly, complex and time consuming," Sanjay Kasturia, vice president and managing director, Sales, India, Syniverse, said.
