Network Cost Management

With networks running parallel 3G and GPRS networks, third party backhaul agreements need to be continually reviewed. Rates constantly change and traffic must be re-rated quickly. The huge growth in networks and traffic means systems are no longer aligned. The results, from inflated wholesale line costs to misguided capacity planning, is reduced EBIT.

Advanced analytics allow you to optimise network cost management. They ensure you understand your assets and optimise interactions with suppliers. They highlight opportunities and iron out difficulties. Each billing account contains millions of records. By integrating and analysing huge volumes of data, our solutions deliver a visibility into network traffic that lets you manage relationships with your backhaul partners proactively. Accurate bills and prompt settlement translate into better profit margins.
