Short Code Routing to 10-Digit Numbers Has Arrived!

This anticipated routing upgrade is now available through Aerialink!

Did you know that there are approximately 9000 U.S. common short codes registered to brands?  Short code messages are a really convenient way for people to receive value-added services from businesses.  Brands attempt to send short codes messages to opted-in wireless and wireline number subscribers.  But if those wireline numbers aren’t hosted on a platform that can receive those messages, then the number subscribers don’t have a chance of ever receiving them  

To solve this problem, we’ve been busy working to bring short code to 10-digit routing to our customers to help you differentiate your SMS offering. If you are currently utilizing U.S. 10-digit numbers, this new routing upgrade option will be a welcome addition to your customers who want to receive short code messages on their VoIP, landline, or toll-free numbers.
