Comviva, the leading provider of integrated VAS solutions for mobile operators in emerging markets, today announced that Mobinil, Egypt’s largest GSM operator with over 21 million subscribers, has selected its SMS Router solution to enhance SMS traffic delivery across its network.
Comviva’s SMS Router will embed a new class of message intelligence into Mobinil’s network to improve handling of high throughput requirements, optimize delivery, load-share and integrate existing SMSCs more efficiently.
