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.

Long Codes

Long Codes are also known as long numbers and are full mobile telephone numbers (e.g. 1408 7654321 or 447624803588) that can be used for 2-way SMS applications. They look like normal subscriber numbers but are actual virtual and are assigned to an application to ensure correct delivery of MO Messages.
