Bond Wireless was founded in Queensland, Australia in 2002 by Dr. Clarence Tan with the objective of creating purpose built ICT (Information and Communications Technology) applications that used short message service (SMS or text messaging) as their key communications medium. Bond Wireless has won several national [1] and international awards[2] for their software and patented secure communications systems.[3] Bond Wireless provides SMS coverage to over 150 countries and VoIP(Voice over IP) to over 220 countries and has business operations in Australia, United States, UK, UAE, Thailand, Kenya, Malaysia, and Singapore. Bond Wireless is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner,[4] IBM Advanced Level Partner,[5] Sun Microsystems iForce Partner, and a Computer Associates Channel Partner.

Intellectual property

Bond Wireless has a patented SMS Authenticate and Verify (SAV) technology[6] which enables the non-repudiation of SMS recipients. SAV applications range from notifying patients of their medical results[7] to enabling mobile commerce and mobile banking.[8] Bond Wireless also holds patents for its SMS Print technology that allows for the sending of an SMS from any Microsoft Windows-based application by pressing the Print button.[9]

Research outcomes

A research project was conducted by the Queensland Health Sexual Health Unit using the Bond Wireless SMS SAV technology embedded in their CaraData’s Sexual Health Information Program (SHIP) to send patient test results via SMS. During six months of operational use, a number of key outcomes were achieved. Most importantly, 37% of patients chose to receive their test results via SMS and, with time and familiarity, CaraData and Bond Wireless believe that this percentage will increase significantly. The major outcome of the six month usage study showed that 90% of the negative results (good news) can be communicated via SMS confidently. This has a substantial impact on clinic staff, as it results in significant phone traffic reductions. Staff time and effort is now targeted more cost–effectively towards communicating with patients who have received positive results, or test results indicating further treatment is necessary. Interestingly, appointment waiting times were also shortened, improving the clinic’s ability to meet public demand for its services.[10]


SMS/Text-Messaging Gateway

The Bond Wireless Global Messaging Gateway connects organizations to mobile phones in over 150 countries across 500 networks utilizing a global network of over 50 operators. The Gateway supports two‐way SMS/text messaging and enables access to the existing range of Bond Wireless services and applications or can be accessed via an independent application or service operated by Bond Wireless’ clients and partners. Connection options include HTTP Post, SMPP and VPN.[11]

VoIP Gateway

The Bond Wireless Global VoIP Gateway enables organizations to access VOIP (Voice over IP) services, enabling PC-to-PC and PC-to-Phone calling either directly from the Bond Wireless Application Suite or via integration into existing corporate applications. The VoIP gateway incorporates an SMS/text messaging call initiation capability which enables a VoIP call to be established by a mobile phone through SMS/text messaging the number of the party a person wishes to call.[12]
