The "Virtual Mobile" solution brings high performance with low message delivery latency using Virtual Mobile Numbers. A single number allows an application to receive incoming SMS from all supported networks worldwide. The Virtual Mobile Numbers behave in the same way as a regular mobile number, but with the benefit of significantly higher throughput (20-50 SMS per second) to your application.
VMNs can be used to provide a local number to which mobiles from the same country can send messages for the same cost as sending a message to any other local mobile number. Mobiles from other supported networks worldwide can also send to the same number.
VMNs are available from the following countries:
- UK (+44) - mainland
- UK (+44) - channel islands
- Denmark (+45)
- Egypt (+20)
- France (+33)
- Germany (+49)
- Norway (+47)
- Philippines (+63)
- Romania (+40)
- South Africa (+27)
- Sweden (+46)
Set-up and rental pricing for VMNs vary by country.
Virtual Mobile Numbers are compatible with each of our supported APIs - SMPP, HTTP and SMTP (email) - and solutions - AlertBroadcast, EmailSMS and WebSMS. Virtual Mobile Numbers are also known as MSISDN numbers or long numbers.
Timestamp: When using the SMPP interface and certain VMN ranges that we provide, the exact time the SMS was sent by the mobile subscriber can be received.
