MIG Messaging Gateway capable of delivering in excess of 200,000 messages per minute
Erlang Solutions today announces its role in assisting mobile and digital technology business Mobile Interactive Group’s (MIG), with upgrading its Messaging Gateway, which enables businesses to transmit high volumes of SMS messages directly to and from multiple mobile users.
In addition to MIG’s internal language expertise, Erlang Solutions assisted MIG’s Development Team with a 360 review of the platforms architecture and design, implemented change and supported testing. MIG required Short Message Peer to Peer (SMPP) and Universal Computer Protocol (UCP) stacks, capable of delivering short messages between SMS peer entities to a fixed deadline. SMPP and UCP are used by clients to connect to the mobile network operators (MNOs) Short Message Service Centre (SMSC).
Since the first SMS was sent in 1992, mobile messaging has become a core communications tool. Consumer demand insists that mobile network operators (MNO’s) have the ability to transmit a high volumes of text messages in real-time and ideally with no delay, particularly during periods of peak traffic like Christmas, New Years Eve, major sporting events and participation TV shows (such as The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!, The Gadget Show and more).
Marcus Kern, Chief Technology Officer, Mobile Interactive Group (MIG) commented, “It’s been great to work with Erlang Solutions over the past 18 months. Their Open Telecom Platform has been created with Telecoms in mind; therefore scalability, volume and reliability are paramount, meaning the perfect solutions provider for the upgrade to MIG’s Messaging Gateway. We have benefitted from the active Erlang Open Source Community and are happy that we can contribute the UCP protocol.”
“We worked with Erlang Solutions to review the Gateways architecture and design, plus they presented a proof of concept which gave us the confidence and winning formula to proceed with this extremely complex project – Their inherent expertise gave MIG a crucial competitive advantage which was vital to its success of this project.”
“The team here at Erlang Solutions has unrivalled expertise and knowledge in these types of projects and has previously built similar gateways in Erlang for other high profile companies; this experience has helped to make this project a great success,” said Marcus Taylor, Commercial Director and Co-Founder of Erlang Solutions. “MIG’s Messaging Gateway can now deliver in excess of 200,000 messages per second and the upgrade provides just one more example of the many user cases to which Erlang can be applied – across multiple industries and applications, within a specific timeframe and within budget.”
