Among these additional features, the Nobill SMSC solution delivered to Unify Mobile includes a Home Routing function which introduces the ability for all MT (Mobile Terminated) short messages from foreign SMSCs to route via the home operator network, regardless of if the recipient subscriber is registered in the home network or roaming in a foreign network.
