The Telnyx Traffic Type feature allows a user to select if an eligible number will be routed to an end user as Application-to-Person (A2P) or Person-to-Person (P2P) traffic.
Selecting a traffic type that aligns with the number's messaging use case will improve message deliverability. The P2P traffic type will also allow customers to send messages internationally.
Note: You may notice that some numbers do not have the option to select P2P, this is because only numbers assigned to the Telnyx SPID can currently switch between A2P and P2P at this time.
Check out our resource center for more details on A2P vs. P2P here.
