The A2P SMS market is booming. According to some studies, in 2020 yields of 70 billion dollars will be reached. Since A2P communication happens directly between applications and subscribers, any service disruptions can have devastating business results. That’s why it’s crucial for A2P messages to be delivered reliably and securely – without undesired traffic blocking networks. Read what Matija Percan, Business Development Manager Messaging at Deutsche Telekom, says about the growing importance of A2P messaging, why it needs added safety protection, and what Deutsche Telekom is doing to support that challenge.

The European Aviation Network (EAN) is a one-of-a-kind network and a true innovation. It brings high-speed internet access to passengers flying over Europe – and delivers a “like-at-home” broadband experience in the sky. Its unrivalled performance was made possible by integrating satellite and LTE-based ground technology. EAN was cooperatively developed with partners including satellite provider Inmarsat. Deutsche Telekom was responsible for the almost 300 LTE stations installed across Europe. Airlines benefit from a cost-efficient, scalable Wi-Fi solution that caters to the growing desires and expectations of their customers.
The IoT market is booming and there seems to be no end in sight. While this provides a myriad of opportunities for telco operators, it also creates challenges. Many IoT devices must function 24/7, across borders or even with access to permanent roaming. Together with the advances in artificial intelligence and machine-to-machine learning, an automated world is fast becoming the norm. All that calls for more business intelligence, a reinvention of processes and quicker reactions to new technologies. Deutsche Telekom is ready for this new industry-wide reality by streamlining systems, partnering for faster launches and looking at completely new ways of creating benefit for our clients.
There will be key changes to the global wholesale market as we know it. That’s why we’re working on innovations that will enable a secure future for our clients,
