What you should know about 10DLC for MMS

If you use mobile messaging to communicate with customers and employees in the US, you can send and receive MMS messages via 10DLC – the carrier-approved US business messaging route.

You can think of 10DLC as both a phone number and a route or system that has been designed for business messaging.

Long codes were designed for person-to-person (P2P) communications. They have low volume throughput and lack desirable security standards. Carriers have always considered them to be an unsanctioned messaging route so they’re looking to end their use.

Every organization that uses automated mobile messaging to connect with employees or customers in the US should be using 10DLC.

Benefits of 10DLC

Your business needs to own a registered number to start business communications- find out why you should chose 10DLC.

Lower costs

10DLC numbers run at a much lower cost than short codes in the US.

High throughput

With a healthy throughput via 10DLC, your messages are sure to be delivered.

Fast setup

Be up and running in minutes with a 10DLC number from Infobip.

Our Numbers and Short Codes solution lets you do everything you need to send and receive messages via 10DLC. This includes:

Bring your own carrier

Transferring your Short Codes to a new messaging solutions provider can be daunting. It risks downtime and undelivered messages which ultimately costs money. Your migration should run like clockwork – with no undelivered messages, no downtime, and no uncertainty.  

To solve this, we’ve introduced Bring Your Own Carrier – a service which empowers businesses with a hassle-free Short Code migration process. We do all the heavy lifting so you can concentrate on your business and customers. We also take care of ported numbers and identify which number belongs to which carrier.

Why is this important?

Short Codes are valuable assets. The challenge when switching communication providers is that each carrier follows different migration processes at different speeds. This means that even a few weeks after you start migrating, your messaging traffic could be traveling through different providers; not to mention the struggle of trying to figure out which customer belongs to which carrier.  

As a leading communication solutions provider, we have close relationships with all major carriers and long-established migration procedures in place.
