Many operators are still oblivious to the fact that they are losing billions of dollars! This is mainly due to the un-detection of SMS grey routes terminating millions of OTT and other A2P messages at low or no cost.
In fact one of the biggest challenges facing service providers today is the elimination of grey routes from their networks. Hence stopping illegally terminated messages is now more crucial than ever.
How do Grey Routes work?
Grey route messages are legitimate communications transmitted via a complex network of interconnecting global routes. However these same routes are in violation of sending or receiving operators’ commercial terms. A2P traffic has driven the rise in bulk buying messages from legitimate SMS aggregators – and conversely the rise of grey routes operated by fraudulent providers.
While many are becoming aware of these threats, Operators still have a long way to go!
Some studies suggest that by the year 2020 only 50% of them will have effective grey route defenses put in place.
