"As of October 2018, Saudi Arabia is the largest economy in the Middle East and the 18th largest in the world. Saudi Arabia has the world's second-largest proven petroleum reserves and the country is the largest exporter of petroleum. It also has the fifth-largest proven natural gas reserves. Saudi Arabia is considered an "energy superpower". It has the third highest total estimated value of natural resources, valued at US$34.4 trillion in 2016. Saudi Arabia's command economy is petroleum-based; roughly 63% of budget revenues and 67% of export earnings come from the oil industry. It is strongly dependent on foreign workers with about 80% of those employed in the private sector being non-Saudi." - Wikipedia
Networks in Saudi Arabia have implemented very complex spam filters that in most cases block even legitimate application to person traffic. Therefore, cheap signaling/roaming links do not deliver well, especially for high-value content such as password delivery or alerts. Additionally, all routes in Saudi are unstable due to local issues, so relying on one route is not possible.
1s2u has therefore created a dynamic routing in Saudi Arabia, which combines several routes and chooses the best one to ensure your message is delivered.

For bulk message (Ads and promotions, anything non-transactional) SenderID must include the postfix "-AD" or " AD". So promotional content has to be sent with "SID-AD" (length = 11 digits) format.
