Nationwide ADC Registry
For over a decade StarStar Mobile has held exclusive contracts with the major US wireless carriers to enable Abbreviated Dial Codes (ADCs). Abbreviated Dial Codes are short numbers that begin with the digits *, #, **, or ##. For most commercial applications StarStar Mobile provides customers with numbers that begin with the digits ** which we call StarStar Numbers. StarStar Mobile operates the nationwide registry for StarStar Numbers, and StarStar Numbers are quickly becoming the dialable domains of the mobile world.
To enable these ADCs, StarStar Mobile developed the Smart Dial Platform. The Smart Dial Platform is the only commercial ADC platform in the world and employs a number of specialized technologies to enable the deployment of ADCs at large scale. The Smart Dial Platform maintains the national ADC registry and is able to activate ADCs nationwide on the major US wireless carriers. The Smart Dial Platform is a full-featured platform integrating all of the technologies that are needed to enable modern ADC services including:
- Interactive voice response
- Speech recognition
- Text to speech
- Text messaging
- Visual Engagement
- RESTful Developer API
- Sophisticated Management Portal
- Automated data feeds
Carrier Grade Reliability
StarStar Mobile operates its services with the consent of the major US wireless carriers. These carriers have high standards and we’ve risen to the challenge by making the Smart Dial Platform a full carrier-grade platform. Our platform is designed for 99.999% availability, and most of the time we hit that mark! The platform employs multiple levels of redundancy and we are happy to say that StarStar Mobile has not had a major service outage in over 5 years. We’re proud of our track record of reliability and we think you’ll be comfortable running your services on the Smart Dial Platform.
StarStar Mobile holds a number of patents on technology used in the Smart Dial Platform. Following are some of our patents.
Public Service ADCs
Most of the ADCs we enable at StarStar Mobile begin with the digits **. StarStar Numbers are the ADCs that are used for almost all commercial ADC applications. Many public service applications however use ADCs that begin with a single * or # digit. First responders such as state troopers, highway patrol, police departments, and some other government agencies have historically used single * or # ADCs. If you need one of these public service ADCs contact us and we can help you get setup.
