SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 6, 2012) - tyntec, a Germany-based mobile interaction specialist, today announced that it has been granted a new patent for Distributed SMS-C to deliver the highest levels of security and quality for the transmission of SMS between different communications networks.
The new SMS-C patent increases reliability in data packet transmission between devices on various networks. Thanks to the new technology, tyntec is able to offer even higher delivery rates and virtually eliminate message loss. In addition, tyntec's Distributed SMS-C allows the company to optimize mobile number portability handling by identifying the correct network, thereby assuring a quick and reliable delivery.
tyntec is a unique company in the SMS sector because it possesses considerable in-house development and engineering resources which it uses to develop and build its own platforms. The company is able to provide the highest level of quality in the messaging industry, as it connects directly into a network of carrier partners. This carrier-level connectivity means tyntec can reach mobile subscribers directly, without going through third party servers. In this way, tyntec can offer full transparency and maintains complete control and security of the SMS transmission path, from the sender right to the end-user's handset. In contrast, other SMS providers lack the carrier partnerships and software capabilities to support this level of control, security and reliability.
"This patent differentiates tyntec and validates our ongoing commitment to pass the rigorous requirements needed to work directly within the carrier infrastructure," said Thorsten Trapp, cofounder and CTO of tyntec. "As a 10-year veteran of SMS, we have a strong advantage in the market and are continuously innovating to maintain that leadership position. Our development team represents the best and brightest minds in our industry, and we have once again raised the bar with this new patent grant."
The Distributed SMS-C patent has been granted in Europe, UK and Singapore and further applications mean patent protection in USA and Hong Kong are pending. The patent underscores tyntec's technological leadership in the messaging space. Today, tyntec works with over 30 strategic carrier partners reaching more than 700 networks in 190 countries around the world to provide 500+ customers worldwide with reliable, global and easy-to-integrate mobile interaction services, including enterprises, internet & social media companies, telecoms businesses, mobile operators and MVNOs.
