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.

VAS

Offered by a mobile network or its resellers, a value-added service (VAS) generates additional revenue by offering increased benefits to subscribers. Total VAS revenue is calculated from the total of Rich Messages, SMS, data-over-cellular and information-service revenue. All other VAS revenue is considered transparent and is included with call charges or subscription revenue.
