OVERVIEW

A Success Story

Consistent telecommunications services are essential to Claro’s premium customers. Receiving timely notices about critical activities in servers and network nodes enables stakeholders to promptly take appropriate actions.

Claro turned to Wovenware to build a cloud-based always-on highly scalable SMS campaign manager that receives e-mail messages from external customers and converts them to SMS. The system can trigger hundreds of messages per minute 24/7.

THE CHALLENGES

What We Faced

  • The need for notification of preemptive maintenance and outages in real-time.
  • Support for high volumes of transactions per minute.
  • The need for 24/7 availability.

OUR APPROACH

How We Helped

To meet Claro’s performance requirements and to deliver an always-on and highly scalable solution, Wovenware designed and developed an SMS campaign manager using a microservices-based architecture and Azure container services. The application receives e-mail messages from external customers and converts them to SMS and network related notices are triggered automatically.

The application is mostly used to warn of preemptive maintenance or system outages but can be adapted to be adapted for any type of mass SMS campaign.
