Terms and definitions in messaging

Multichannel messaging service is based on a variety of telecommunication and Internet technologies. In the description of services, we often use abbreviations that may not always be known to you. Here we have compiled a glossary of terms and definitions used in the industry.

Country Code

A country code is part of a comprehensive numbering plan, E.164, established by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), defined to support interoperability among the supported networks of its members. The standard defines a country calling code (aka country code) for each state or region which is prefixed to each national numbering plan’s telephone number to support a standard for international destination routing.
