Use Case - Effective call/SMS routing:

If you are an organisation who generates high volumes of calls and messages and has interconnects to multiple carriers who deliver them on your behalf, then knowing precisely which carrier a number belongs to can save time and money as well as prevent dropped calls and undelivered messages.

In a World where many organisations use SMS messages for real-time applications (such as one-time passwords, status updates etc.) then the time penalty involved in selecting the wrong network and having the message ‘bounce’ from network to network can be a significant drag on your user experience and additional costs.

Velocity is used by many of the World’s largest messaging providers for exactly this purpose, and helps them improve their delivery performance and manage their costs.

Anywhere In The World

For every country, our expert support team have already integrated a full dialling plan, mapping all allocated and available number ranges to operators.

Therefore, even if a number is not in our database (because it has not ported), we can return the correct routing information from the dial plan.

We work very hard every day analysing updated regulator information and other sources such as IR-21 documents to keep this list complete.
