USSD Gateway


The superior alternative to SMS for menu-based mobile applications


The Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) Server allows a user to interact directly with network-based functions from their GSM mobile phone.

The USSD Server provides the framework for a rich set of subscriber capabilities and services including:


  • Subscriber account management
  • Balance inquiry
  • Call-back
  • Messaging
  • Voting
  • Short quiz applications
  • Interactive chat.


USSD can minimize the use of voice-channel resources by reducing user interaction with Interactive Voice Response (IVR) applications. It provides rapid session-based short message response. It can improve the user experience by speeding transaction response as compared with latency delays common with typical store-and-forward Short Message Service (SMS).
