Direct Your Roaming Subscribers to a Preferred Visited Network with Intelligent Traffic Steering
Globitel offers traffic steering. Mobile operators are faced with challenges in increasing their revenues in the face of increased competition. In order to face these challenges mobile operators tend to select and prioritize their roaming partners based on criteria such as bilateral agreements, operator groups, coverage, traffic volume, and different needs of specific users such as Post/Prepaid, GPRS, MMS, 3G voice and data. It is in the operator’s best interest that its outbound roamers register in preferred roaming partner networks according to these criteria. Intelligent Traffic Steering, which is Globitel’s implementation of the IR.73 guidelines of the GSM Association, enables the operator to dynamically steer its outbound roaming subscribers to preferred Visited Network. This feature-rich, multiple-strategy solution, offering robust rule-based and personalized application logic, lets operators easily control outbound roamers network selection according to the overall roaming and marketing objectives. The solution approach is unique in that it is completely independent of the users’ handsets, and solves many of the technological and vendor- dependency issues.
