Virtual Mobile Numbers (VMNs) bring high performance delivery of messages from mobiles to applications. A single Virtual Mobile Number allows an application to receive incoming SMS from all supported networks worldwide, with extremely low delivery latency. Virtual Mobile Numbers behave in the same way as regular mobile numbers, but with the benefit of significantly higher throughput (200 SMS per second) to your application. VMNs enable conversational messaging when using SMS as the channel between your business and customers.
VMNs can be used to provide a local number to which mobiles from the same country can send messages for the same cost as sending a message to any other local mobile number. Mobiles from other supported networks worldwide can also send messages to the same number. Use in combination with sending SMS to mobiles using our APIs and portals to perform two-way SMS messaging between mobiles and your application.
With Virtual Mobile Numbers, mobile originated (MO) SMS can be received by an application using the Tyr SMS Gateway SMPP and REST APIs. When using the REST API we pass received messages securely to your webhook or API endpoint as soon as they are received by our platforms.
