    • Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) Prepared by: Somashekhar Sajjan 1MobiMedia Confidential MobiMedia
    • Contents Introduction Advantages Examples 2MobiMedia Confidential MobiMedia
    • Introduction Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) is a protocol used by GSM cellular telephones to communicate with the service providers computers. USSD can be used for WAP browsing, prepaid callback service, mobile-money services, location-based content services, menu-based information services, and as part of configuring the phone on the network. USSD messages are up to 182 alphanumeric characters in length. 3MobiMedia Confidential MobiMedia
    • Advantages Unlike Short Message Service (SMS) messages, USSD messages create a real- time connection during a USSD session. The connection remains open, allowing a two-way exchange of a sequence of data. This makes USSD more responsive than services that use SMS. 4MobiMedia Confidential MobiMedia
    • How it works The user composes a message—usually rather cryptic—on the phone keyboard. The phone sends it to the phone company network, where it is received by a computer dedicated to USSD. The answer from this computer is sent back to the phone. The answer could be seen on the phone screen. 5MobiMedia Confidential MobiMedia
