The ultimate success of RBM will be based on its ubiquity and scale. However, only 15% of all mobile network operators worldwide were in a position to offer RCS Business Messaging (RBM) services as of end-2023, with monetised traffic in just 18 markets and monetised traffic volumes a fraction of those seen on A2P SMS.

In this document, MEF’s Basic RCS Working Group (established in January 2023) focuses on creating momentum behind the adoption of RBM by positioning Basic RCS (160-character text messages sent via RCS with verified sender ID) as a cost-effective and more secure platform for brands and businesses to communicate with customers.
