Telenor, Anam tackle SMS spam

SMS applications provider Anam has partnered Telenor to deliver new messaging services that will improve customers' experience by curtailing SMS spam.

Telenor will deploy Anam's Smart Services Message Centre which will allow the company to create and deploy new messaging-based services.

Initial implementation will include Anam's SMS Anti-SPAM solution that defends users and the network against SMS spam.

The deal with Telenor highlights the importance that global operators place on this issue.

Telenor is one of the fastest growing providers of mobile services worldwide. The company's mobile operations cover 12 countries, with more than 143 million mobile subscriptions.

Anam's SMS Anti-SPAM product provides security filtering features that detect scanning, spoofing and spam content and prevent it from reaching a mobile phone; improving the user's experience and protecting the network.

The initial deployment will support over 3,000 messages per second being carried and checked by the platform.
