SAN FRANCISCO, April 28, 2015 / PRNewswire — Nexmo, the leading cloud communication API company, today announced a strategic partnership with Mobilis, a leading provider of telecom solutions to Algeria. Mobilis, a division of Algeria Telecom, has been the leader in bringing 3G connectivity and other cutting edge services like cloud communications to the country. Now Algerian businesses will have access to world-class mobile user verification and cloud communications that are proven to significantly and immediately increase customer acquisition and conversion rates.
As the number of hacked accounts increases, phone numbers are proving to be more effective in verifying user identity than traditional tactics that rely on email or social media. While passwords and social media profiles are getting easier to hack, replicate or fraudulently create, phone numbers are globally available, difficult and expensive to fake and inexpensive to implement. With Nexmo’s Verify, businesses can easily automate phone verification and with Number Insights, they can detect invalid or virtual numbers and save on verification costs. And by Nexmo’s direct-to-carrier partnerships, businesses can be assured their verification messages are being delivered on time and with the highest delivery rates.
“We are extremely happy to partner with Nexmo to bring advanced communication tools to our growing network,” said Sid Ahmed Zaidi, Business Development and International Roaming Deputy Director for Mobilis. “As application-to-person traffic continues to grow at substantial rates in Algeria, we knew we had to partner with Nexmo to provide the highest level of service our customers have come to expect.”
With the new partnership Algerian businesses and developers will also now be able to send outbound SMS, voice and text to speech messages with an industry-leading quality of service. Only Nexmo combines industry-leading technology with unparalleled partnerships to deliver best-in-class performance. Nexmo’s Adaptive Routing technology automatically finds the quickest path for messages to travel, ensuring Mobilis customers on time and with incredibly low latency.
By partnering directly with carriers like Mobilis around the world, Nexmo further increases quality of service by cutting down the number of “hops” messages typically go through. Every time a message is exchanged between carriers or network aggregators, it greatly increases the chance a message will be dropped or delivers a false positive of being correctly delivered.
“Today marks an important milestone for Nexmo and our customers. By partnering with one of the largest networks in Algeria, we can bring even more reliability and decisiveness to the cloud-based mobile communications space,” said David Vigar, Nexmo’s Director of Carrier Relations. “Through our partnership with Mobilis, together we will continue to pioneer how people receive information on their mobile devices while empowering businesses to tap into one of the fastest growing mobile populations in Africa.”
For over four years Nexmo has combined global reach with local country connectors. With access to over 8 billion phones and service in 239 countries and regions, over 80,000 customers trust Nexmo for their mission-critical communications.
Nexmo provides innovative communication APIs that bridge traditional voice and text services with cloud communications. Nexmo enables applications and enterprises to make phone calls or send and receive text messages with ease to improve user experiences, no matter where in the world customers are located. High-volume communication companies such as Alibaba, Airbnb, Line and Viber send millions of messages per month using Nexmo APIs. Nexmo was named to the 2014 CNBC Disruptor 50 list, the 2014 Hottest Companies in San Francisco by Lead411, and was recognized by analyst firm Gartner as a 2014 Cool Vendor in Communication Services. www.nexmo.com.
