The Roaming BI system is a business intelligence system which allows users to efficiently manage and handle roaming with mobile operators and mobile operator groups. Based on business models typical of the industry and on traffic information drawn from TAP and CDR files, the system allows users to efficiently:
Roaming agreements are contracts which affect the company's profitability on international telecommunication of voice, data and text messaging. Due to the fact that these contracts run over several years and that they can be set up both with operators and operator groups, each participating party has an interest to define them as accurately as possible, in order to guarantee profitability. Therefore the system provides:
Roaming agreements run over long periods (1-2 years) and the profitability of these agreements must be known in advance, before settlement can be reached. Therefore, it is necessary to have a clear understanding and idea of the predicted traffic used and the commercial environment in which the agreement will run, in order to achieve the best agreements possible, thus allowing the optimization of own profits. Therefore Oculeus Roaming BI system provides:
The nature of roaming revenue and roaming cost have a high impact on profitability and it is possible to lose money very quickly if assumptions made on roaming agreements are not fulfilled or if they do not match real values during agreement execution. Consequently, it is necessary to monitor roaming traffic very closely. Therefore the system provides:
Roaming revenue and cost can be, or in many cases are, a major part of mobile operators’ financial planning. So it is necessary to have a clear understanding of these figures and to provide budget forecasts as part of the financial planning. Therefore Roaming BI provides the ability to generate financial forecasts based on defined agreements, traffic data and predictions derived from comprehensive simulations. These forecasts can then be used for company budgetary planning.
