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.

JSON

In computing, JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is an open-standard file format that uses human-readable text to transmit data objects consisting of attribute–value pairs and array data types or any other serialisable value. It is a common data format used for asynchronous browser–server communication.

JSON is a language-independent data format. It was derived from JavaScript, but many programming languages include code to generate and parse JSON-format data. The official Internet media type for JSON is application/json.
