Telefónica Group selects Xura as a Global Messaging Partner

Xura’s Message Controller is NFV ready and incorporates next generation SMS firewall for spam and fraud control

Xura, Inc., a leading provider of digital communications services, today announced an agreement with the Telefonica Group, to become a global messaging partner across all countries operated by the multinational. As part of the agreement, Xura will deploy its Message Controller (MCO) solution across Telefonica’s network, providing an advanced, multifunctional messaging platform that will play a key role in the evolution of the operator’s messaging infrastructure.

Enabling SMS and MMS services for the Telefonica Group, Xura Message Controller can also be used as the launch pad for future IP-based services, and will provide a wide range of intelligent routing functions and scenario analysis for triggering sophisticated message handling and optimizing traffic. Additionally, with Xura Message Controller, Telefonica will activate Xura’s next generation SMS firewall including its SpamShield module, implementing real-time spam and fraud detection techniques, unique self-learning algorithms and providing a deep understanding of the network.

Xura Message Controller will flexibly integrate within Telefonica’s overall networking ecosystem to reduce complexity and provide optimal efficiency for greater return on investment (ROI) and, because the solution is fully virtualized, it can be deployed in an NFV (Network Function Virtualization) environment, improving efficiency and lowering costs.

"Our partnership with the Telefonica Group spans more than ten years, so we are extremely pleased to close this exclusive agreement that reinforces our long-standing relationship.  Not only will this messaging framework future-proof Telefonica’s messaging infrastructure but the new scope will mean we can secure their networks and protect them against fraudulent activity, as well as support them as they migrate to NFV,” said Philippe Tartavull, Chief Executive Officer at Xura, Inc.
