Less than 10 sec SMS delivery Bench Mark
Posted on 10th Oct 2011
Every day, millions of SMSes are being sent via Way2SMS. The numbers are growing rapidly. The following numbers tells the story of how we ve grown over the past 3 years in terms of number of SMS delivered per day.
Users were sending over 3 lakh SMSes per day in 2008. By 2009 that number was 15 lakh SMS per day, and by 2010 it has grown to 75 lakh per day. Today we are delivering more than 15 million SMS per day. That s an average of 250 throughput per second.
As we consider Way2SMS messaging as highly time critical messaging, we have tailored our platform to deliver every single message (either from quick SMS or sent from group SMS) in less than 10 seconds time. Currently our platform can handle up to 1000 SMS per second and can be scaled easily up to 2000 SMS per second.
As an undisputed leader in messaging, we continued our innovation by building top quality platform with redundancy at every level to ensure zero loss of messages during the message transmission. With our engineers continuous efforts, we have achieved over 95% delivery rates in less than 10 sec during the last month.
Also, a dedicated monitoring team continuously checks deliveries to various networks in different circles. This ensures identifying delivery issues to various networks in matter of few minutes, helps us to coordinate with telecom operators to resolve such issues in quick time.
