iAX™ SMS is a next generation virtualised messaging platform from Tango Telecom which includes features such as Direct Delivery, Charging, Flexible Store and Forward, SMS Anti-Spam and SMS Value Added Services such as Auto-Reply and Sponsored SMS.
Our fully virtualised solution can be deployed as a standard SMSC, as an adjunct SMSC with direct delivery or as a cloud-based SMSC providing a modular set of features based on the proven world class iAX™ platform. iAX™ SMS offers simultaneous support for legacy and IP technologies to extend messaging services over IP networks by interworking with legacy SMS services via the standards based IP-SM-GW function.
Tango Telecom’s entire Next Generation Messaging portfolio has been virtualised and tested in the most common standard virtualised environments, and the “cloud overhead” has been found to be small: on a single current-generation 2-CPU/12-core blade, the virtualised messaging solution delivers in excess of 14,000 SMS/second.
Unlike those solutions that are merely virtualised when ported into the cloud, Tango Telecom’s solutions fully integrate with the cloud supervision system (e.g. IBM® PureFlex™, Amazon EC2®, etc.) allowing the full potential and flexibility of the cloud model to be realised. The solutions scale automatically and dynamically across available cloud resources to meet the real-time demand.
Based on Oracle’s Sun Blade X6270 M2 servers and iAX™, Tango Telecom’s next generation messaging platform achieved sustained performance of over 10,000 message delivery attempts (MDA) per second. The benchmark report shows that the iAX™ platform demonstrated unprecedented scalability to over 100,000 MDA/s from a single Sun Blade server chassis.
In 2010, the global annual SMS traffic was in the region of 6.5 trillion messages. To put this truly phenomenal benchmark in context, just a few Sun servers, fully equipped and running the iAX™ next-generation messaging software, could potentially handle SMS traffic for the entire world’s population.
