10-Digit Long Code is a typical 10 digit number that comes with the ability to handle high-volume messaging. Until now, most local phone numbers weren’t specifically designed to execute mass texting. Traditional ten-digit numbers were only allowed for P2P(Peer to Peer) messaging.
Telecom carriers have adopted a set of standards and registration processes for 10DLC numbers to understand better A2P practitioners and what they’re sending across the network. The idea is to provide reliability, security, better throughput, and deliverability rates for the businesses and their audience with low risk.
Note: 10DLC implementation is not toward putting constraints on A2P messaging, as is the case with filters currently in place with US mobile carriers. If you are not sending messages to the US through CallHub, you need not make any changes.
10DLC as the new normal for messaging
Shared shortcodes have posed various risks to the users over the carrier networks, but the need for sending a high volume of texts made the carriers allow the organizations to use it. However, the shared usage of shortcodes has made it difficult for the carriers to identify who is at fault.
This means, If a faulty user is violating the traffic on the shared shortcode, the carrier is compelled to suspend the shortcode affecting all the other users going by the book.
With the increasing spam and the underlying risk involved, the carriers have decided to end the usage of shared shortcodes. This is where the 10DLC makes its mark.

Moreover, at an affordable price, 10DLC is the best solution for sending a large volume of texts so far.
