Mobile 365 was selected to provide SMS services to Skype. With this new service, Skype users can send an SMS to a mobile phone directly from their keyboard. The service is quick and simple to use, and features a straightforward pricing plan; users pay using their existing Skype Credit. For example, a Skype user can now contact a friend who is offline, via a mobile message, and arrange a Skype call, thus extending Skype's reach beyond the PC.
When a Skype user sends a message, Skype distributes the message via Mobile 365's global inter-operator network to over 60 countries across the world. Mobile 365 accommodates high traffic volumes via its upgraded platform, which recently benefited from a $15 million investment, further enabling the network to reliably deliver messages into over 180 countries worldwide.
- Mobile 365 is currently delivering two billion messages per month through its global delivery and settlement service for SMS, MMS, and WAP. Major operator customers include Verizon Wireless, Vodafone, Cingular Wireless, T-Mobile, Telcel, Telefonica, O2, China Mobile, China Unicom, Hutchison, and Airtel.
