Are your roaming revenue streams in jeopardy?
With increased roaming and interconnect traffic, operators strive to maintain a cost-effective, high-level Quality-of-Service (QoS). Issues, including roaming partner selection, service delivery cost, potential revenue stream loss, and the quest for profitable premium traffic, can impact the bottom-line.
Roamers expect a seamless experience
Roamers expect a seamless experience when they arrive at their destination. They don't care who provides that experience. All too often revenue is jeopardized because outbound roamers land on a network for which no partnership agreement is in place or, network issues force inbound roamers onto a competitor’s network. Whether inbound or outbound, roaming revenue depends on the quality of partnerships and SLA agreements with peer carriers.
Hold partners accountable and reduce interconnection costs
The right partnerships and management are critical for optimal roaming and interconnection revenues. In order to hold partners accountable and reduce costs, you need to focus on monitoring the QoS being provided by interconnection carrier suppliers.. This means gaining a more complete view of the signaling network’s interconnection calling activity (ISUP/VoIP) and mobility (MAP/CAP) services.
Service providers need targeted monitoring and troubleshooting applications that can help them make more proactive routing decisions, increase call completions, optimize network resources and provide the best value combination of price and quality.
