Mobile 365 relayed 8.4 billion mobile messages in the first quarter of 2006, covering both the short messaging service (SMS) and multimedia messaging service (MMS). This number is a 40% year-over-year increase.
In 2005, the company delivered more than 25 billion messages, a rate of more than 2 billion messages monthly.
Mobile 365 delivers mobile content, including wallpaper, ringtones, games, and applications on behalf of major global brands, and delivers cross-operator SMS and MMS messages around the world.
"Mobile 365 continues to experience tremendous traffic growth around the world," said Gregory Dunn, Vice President of the Americas for Mobile 365. "We have especially seen a dramatic rise in MMS volume since we pioneered MMS interoperability. We expect, with our interoperability service and the high adoption rate of MMS-capable handsets by U.S. consumers, we will continue to see explosive MMS traffic growth and the rise of new MMS-focused applications and services."
Mobile 365 has nearly 300 direct personal messaging connections to operators worldwide, with reach to over 500 mobile operators and more than 120 premium operator SMS links. Mobile 365 has five global data centers located in Sterling, VA; Chicago, IL; Paris; Beijing; and Singapore.
