Telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) and service providers are searching for ways to generate revenue from new services. Applications utilizing enabling short message service (SMS) can be an ideal way for these businesses to increase income without making a major infrastructure investment.

Signaling System 7 (SS7) is the technology used in the core network to transmit SMS messages, which share the same channels and infrastructure as call control messages. Cost-effective modular components from Intel can be added easily and quickly to an SS7 network to handle increased traffic and generate income from SMS messaging services.
