What we do

We help you do messaging


By sharing best practices we consult on how to launch or run your A2P business better.

We show you how to leverage your assets fully.

We support you organizing the platform/ resources/ connections you need to monetize A2P at its best.

We tailor the messaging strategy to your needs as independent consultants – completely on your side.

The world is our oyster.

Every Region and Country has its own dynamics and regulation. GTC has plenty of personal international experience: We lived in many countries, we have been attending all major messaging events allover the world for a decade and we have an established network of trusted international friends and partners.


There are well over 1000 mobile telecommunication networks in the world. You might want to reach them all or at least some.

You might be one of them.


There is not too little, but too much information on telecom available. We help you sift through that and distill the essence of what you need to run your messaging business. We are independent since we are not operating our own messaging service or platform – all we care is your long term success.

Often this starts with a 1-day workshop (e.g. on A2P SMS or RCS or SS7). And then you might already have gained enough information to handle it yourself. Or you decide to get more help from GTC on a project basis.

But we are equally happy to be the agent connecting you to the right people in order to get the coverage you were struggling to get.

Who we are

We are passionate about sharing our understanding of the messaging
world that we have gathered over decades in the telecom industry.


You might wonder: why the bull in our logo?

Well, it is also the sign of rising stock prices at Wall Street. And we want you to rise.

But to be honest, it is primarily due to José and his Spanish roots and energy.

He started GTC in 2015 as Garcia Telco Consult.


In 2018 Giovanni joined the newly founded Global Telco Consult
