Aculab Cloud now supports SMS

We are pleased to announce that we have transitioned from our beta test phase and now fully support inbound and outbound SMS in six countries so far, with many more being added shortly:

  • Belgium
  • Canada
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

You will be able to use both voice and SMS on the same numbers – there is no need to run voice and SMS services separately. In Belgium, Spain, Sweden and the UK, we have launched a new number type – ‘Mobile’ –  to support this new service. Additionally, UK geographic numbers can also support SMS services. In the US and Canada, you will be able to SMS-enable the geographic number type to perform inbound and outbound messaging.

The two way messaging capabilities are ideal for building applications such as appointment reminder systems, message broadcast systems and those requiring two factor authentication (2FA) of customer accounts. The new APIs for sending and receiving SMS messages complement the already extensive voice capabilities of the Aculab Cloud platform.

  • Improved Aculab Cloud documentation and a new console

    We’ve been busy in the background recently at Aculab with a major website refresh. Aculab has evolved over decades (40 years this year!) from a vendor supplying hardware to a much more software-centric product company. We still sell telecom gateways extensively, but nowadays the bulk of our enabling technology business is software, and in particular our communications platform-as-a-service (CPaaS) product, Aculab Cloud.

  • Interoperability is predictable

    Way back in 2007, while presenting a seminar in Prague, someone asked me for my prediction on when SS7 would no longer be in use. My answer was suitably vague, but something on the lines of, “at least 10 to 15 years.” Ten years on, I wasn’t wrong. Still, I may not be right. SS7 is showing its age, but it’s not about to draw its pension just yet.

  • Fax is not yet dead

    You might think that fax would be as extinct as the Martinique Parrot. That parrot vanished in the 17th Century. Fax was invented two hundred years later, by the Scottish clockmaker, Alexander Bain. It took a while though, until the late 20th Century, for facsimile machines to become popular. However, if the lack of commentary by the majority of today’s technology observers is anything to go by, you’d be forgiven for thinking it too had died out. The truth is that it remains extant, and it shows little sign of going the way of the Martinique.

  • “Daoruni gimi, Ionos Sonaro.” *

    Languages, eh; who would have thought that in the 21st Century there would still be so much diversity?

    In Westeros, in the world of George R. R. Martin’s epic Game of Thrones, there are spoken only two major languages – the Old Tongue and the Common Tongue. But what about computer languages?
