Rotating individual SMS deliveries between multiple long codes

55

Today we are glad to announce a new feature for our platform: you can now rotate your individual SMS deliveries between any number of long codes in your account. This was already in place for SMS campaigns, but is now available for individual messages. So for example when sending your A2P messages you can have them being sent in a balanced way across all your numbers.

In our post “Using multiple Long Codes (aka DIDs) to send your SMS Campaigns” we explained how you could create an SMS campaign using multiple long codes or DIDs, effectively rotating the numbers used as the origin for your messages.

This is inline with what we explained in “Short Codes or Long Codes? Benefits and Drawbacks for your SMS Campaigns“, where the major pros and cons of using short codes or long codes to send your SMS messages were outlined.

Now, if you feel like you need or want us to automatically rotate the numbers used as the origin for your messages, even when sending individual messages, you can now specify a list of those you’d like us to use (instead of only 1), or just “any” to use any of the ones available in your account.

Of course this can be done from your user panel, but also from the SMS API Endpoint.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with us, we’ll be happy to help you out.

Enjoy!
