New List ManagerService fromCardBoardFish
CardBoardFish is pleased to announce the launch of a new List Manager service. This free service allows message recipients to subscribe to or unsubscribe from future campaigns.
The service uses a unique short URL that links to the List Manager interface. When recipients submit their mobile number it will be sent by email or HTTP callback to the CardBoardFish client, so that contact lists can be amended as appropriate.
CardBoardFish is proud to unveil HLR Lookup 2.0, a fully redundant, telco-grade HLR lookup infrastructure with verified coverage of more than 700 networks in over 200 countries.
HLR Lookup 2.0 can be used to identify invalid mobile numbers, find the current and previous mobile network for a number, check if a number has been turned off for a long period of time, and also discover what country a mobile subscriber is currently located in. The service can be accessed either via an easy to use web interface, or HTTP API for direct integration with customer applications and systems.
Harnessing the coverage, throughput, and redundancy of no fewer than 7 independent carriers, this service ensures customer HLR lookups are always processed instantly, producing reliable and accurate results every time. Furthermore, both client-facing nodes and back-end routing nodes are distributed across multiple continents to guarantee the architecture has no single point of failure, additionally enabling large spikes in HLR lookup traffic to be intelligently load-balanced across the entire infrastructure.
Latency monitoring, throughput monitoring, and per lookup state tracking combine in an architecture developed to automatically respond to real-world scenarios and third party disruptions. HLR Lookup 2.0 will even re-submit queries via alternative carriers if, for example, responses are not received within an appropriate timeframe – ensuring the customer will always receive results.
As the system has been designed from the ground-up to be completely self-monitoring, CardBoardFish has made available live coverage as well as live latency and status data, providing a level of transparency previously unseen in the industry.
