SAN DIEGO (March 22, 2011)―MIR3, Inc., the innovator of real-time Intelligent Notification™ and response technology, today announced that it has expanded its partnership with Sybase 365, the global leader in mobile messaging and mobile commerce services. This means that MIR3, who previously used Sybase 365 for all of its international short message service (SMS) traffic, is now running all SMS traffic—national and international—through the company. MIR3 offers a strong, two-way messaging platform that helps users communicate in the most effective way possible during both urgent and non-urgent situations.

To support this traffic increase, MIR3 has joined forces with Sybase 365 to ensure customers around the world can alert recipients instantly during critical situations using SMS.

“Sybase 365 has been a trusted partner for international SMS traffic, and we’re thrilled to leverage their outstanding technology for our domestic SMS traffic,” stated Larry Kettler, executive vice president, sales and marketing, MIR3. “The company’s combination of mature products and services, coverage region, and vendor flexibility all proved a perfect match for our needs.”
