TurningPoint Innovations: We thrive on technology driven innovations!

Unstructured Supplementary Services Data (USSD) is a technology that allows high speed interactive communication between the subscribers and applications across a GSM Network, and hence it supports menus and transactions.


USSD is commonly used for mobile banking, security systems. It can also be useful for everything from accessing news services, sports scores and fixtures, submission services, feedback and voting, advertising listings or directories.Its menu-based platform can provide any number of services and the potential for payment opens the door to the possibility of mobile commerce as it is available regardless of the end-user’s mobile phone type and generation. Unlike SMS, it does not use a store and forward architecture, but a session oriented connection. USSD text messages can be up to 182 bytes in length. Messages received on the mobile phone are not stored. A typical USSD request looks like this: *123# (dialed from the phone),The asterisk (*) and hash (#) codes are much like simple programming codes, signifying the beginning and end of the request. The operator will then relay the codes to the corresponding USSD applications which return with the requested information.
