- Japan's only SMS international hubbing service with anti-spam function
- Direct connection to high-quality route for reliable delivery to mobile network operator in Japan
- Alliance with CLX Communications, a major global A2P SMS provider
Johan Hedberg, CEO and President of CLX, says "We have become one of the world's largest A2P SMS providers by acquiring Mblox, another Tier 1 A2P SMS provider. CLX is delighted to collaborate with NTT Communications, one of the world's largest providers of networks and data centers."SMS usage is increasing due to its ease of use and high reach rate (percentage of messages that users view). SMS has become a marketing tool for enterprises and a means of sending authentication codes because it is not easily susceptible to identity fraud. The International A2P SMS market is growing at a rate of about 10% annually. Gray routes are being used widely to distribute SMS, which has raised the need for antifraud measures. Certain international hubbing providers engaged in sending and receiving fraudulent international A2P SMS have learned how to misuse the "bill & keep" pricing arrangement that was set up to eliminate interconnection billing and invoicing. Normally, mobile network operators charge for distributing A2P SMS, but fraudulent international hubbing providers pretend to be mobile network operators by using gray routes to avoid paying legitimate fees. In the coming future, NTT Com looks forward to further strengthening the detection logic of its SMS firewall for enhanced filtering of fraudulent SMS.
