Lexington, MA – iBASIS, the leading provider of communications solutions for operators and digital players worldwide, today announced that TPG Singapore has selected iBASIS to deliver instant, ultra-efficient, secure access to all Application-to-Person (A2P) services for new subscribers in Singapore.
iBASIS’ selection follows its audit of TPG’s multiple A2P routing and access services, which identified key obstacles to seamless delivery of key services and the requirement for a highly secure carrier grade A2P offering, enabling all subscribers to gain access to capabilities such as iMessage activation with Apple, Facebook, and Google messaging. iBASIS resolved all technical issues identified in TPG’s initial service trials, including difficulties accessing services such as mobile device activation, on-line merchant acknowledgement, and one time password.
TPG has grown its customer base by entering the Singapore market in 2016 and offering free trial plans to customers. In March 2020, TPG Singapore launched its very first commercial plan – a 50GB for S$10 SIM-only mobile plan for users who prefer easy-to-understand plans with no hidden charges. iBASIS’ A2P offering provides unmatched infrastructure and technical capabilities to deliver improved A2P termination quality so that TPG can ensure the highest level of services to subscribers.
“Our solution for TPG demonstrates the immediate and tangible benefits of the iBASIS A2P capabilities for MNOs seeking to optimize and streamline services for their customers,” states Bruno Coindre, VP Messaging Solutions, iBASIS. “We understand TPG’s core promise of simplicity to its customers, including eliminating additional costs and anxieties associated with roaming fees. Our leading A2P infrastructure and expertise is empowering TPG to deliver the most attractive solution packages, features, and performance available in this market.”
