The Future of A2P Business: SMS & Voice (Flash Calling) by Vox Carrier

Date: 1st December 2021

Time: 12:40 – 13:40 (CDT)

More detail on Over the years, A2P SMS has become the most effective, secure and scalable mechanism for all authentication, verification and registration processes of users and applications. This is not a new issue for operators, who on a daily basis seek to ensure that their network is fully capable of mitigating fraud, controlling gray traffic and thus ensuring business stability. What is new for operators is that we are living an era of evolution in the A2P, where the voice entered as a new protagonist with the Flash Call (Voice A2P) solution, being a communication channel designed for verification processes with a faster and more secure registration, but from which the operators are not receiving any associated income, threatening also their SMS A2P revenues if there is no solution included in their network. In this session you will have the opportunity to learn more about A2P voice with the presence of a service provider and an operator from Latin America, to learn more about this phenomenon in our region.

Damian Sanchez – International Services & MVNO Manager at Telecom Argentina and Juan Felipe Santos Segura – VP Strategic Partnership – LATAM at VOX Carrier
