With networks continuing to trend towards IP convergence, mobile carriers will need to look beyond simple data steering and towards intelligent IP services in order to accomplish real-time volume control including inbound and outbound data throttling
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) December 06, 2011
Aicent, Inc., a leading provider of mobile data services, today announced the release of their Roaming Control Center, a powerful new solution for mobile carriers looking to strengthen their subscriber roaming data steering capabilities and provide new revenue generating services with real-time monitoring and risk mitigation, accurate data collection, improved billing, and enhanced policy and bandwidth management controls.
As mobile carriers look to increase their revenues from roaming, they are continually limited by the dramatic increases in data consumption, the impact of network congestion, and market pressure to lower prices. The challenge for many carriers is gaining greater insight into roaming subscribers in order to develop new service offerings and protect their home base of subscribers. With Aicent’s new Roaming Control Center, mobile carriers now have access to improved data monitoring, stronger data collection, and the ability to set alerts based on specific roaming criteria.
“With networks continuing to trend towards IP convergence, mobile carriers will need to look beyond simple data steering and towards intelligent IP services in order to accomplish real-time volume control including inbound and outbound data throttling, in addition to greater service awareness such as blocking specific applications”, said MK Chang, Vice President, Product Marketing for Aicent. “With the tools provided in Aicent’s new Roaming Control Center solution, mobile carriers will be able to quickly develop new revenue producing services with superior monitoring, improved data collection, and the introduction of threshold alerts and alarms designed to give carriers the ability to manage and then apply their own rules on a data stream.”
With the continual pressure to move to complicated tiered pricing, mobile carriers continue to seek-out pricing alternatives to drive additional revenue. With Roaming Control Center, Aicent offers carriers the tools to gain better data insight and drive the development and implementation of new service offerings to take advantage of volume or application-based services.
