Scalable Text SMS System

I worked in a corporate telecommunication group for a while. I had a passion for Voice over IP (VoIP) technology, in fact, I had two US Patents that was filed and later on granted while with the technology. It is extremely difficult to build a scalable telecom network, especially dealing with local regulations, circuits, servers, hardwares and making all of them work together. Once you get the initial system up and running, you will need to repeat and rinse as you grow.

That is why it was so exciting to see a service like Twilio that simplified all the backends for you and reduce the service to API calls. With them doing the heavy lifting, you can now incorporate AWS API Gateway and Lambda to scale out your SMS Text notification service really easily. Check out my guest blog on the Twilio site:


As always, happy coding!
