VOICE, DATA & SMS

In 2010 Access Communications Ltd was established as the Second National Operator (SNO) in Malawi. Access Communications has a country wide network based on CDMA and LTE technologies.

Mobile Challenger

New operators that set out to sell Voice, Data and SMS services better than the established operators often find their plans hampered by the very same problems that make the established players inefficient. By choosing the same solutions and methods as the established operators, the challengers face:
  • Massive investment requirements
  • Complexity and need for exotic technical expertise
  • Fraud exposure

Breaking the Yoke

Access Communications decided to adopt the mob5g.net service for billing and signaling. This decision swiftly put an end to long standing problems and Access were suddenly in a position to better sell Voice, Data and SMS with:
  • Top-up and balance transfer via SMS codes
  • Combination Voice, Data and SMS bundles
  • Hybrid work/private accounts
  • Customer segmentation and marketing

Launch and Beyond

The deployment of mob5g.net at Access was realized roughly 3 months after effective contract. But the launch is just the beginning, over the coming months and years the included product and service adoptions of mob5g.net will allow Access to grow their business.

THE 3 MONTH MIRACLE

Building a New LTE Business

The time from start of expenditures to start of revenues plays a crucial role in any business plan. However, in the mobile world, network operators generally accept that it takes 6 - 18 months to get the billing system operational.

YooMee Côte d'Ivoire had chosen to deploy a TD-LTE network from Alcatel-Lucent and they understood that the billing implementation time was a decisive factor for their project.

fast billing deployment for LTE

mob5g.net was deployed over a 3 month period. Initially signaling and integration test with ALU EPC were carried out. In parallel the customer portals, product catalogue and payment interfaces were prepared for launch.

Commercial Launch After 92 Days

With mob5g.net YooMee were able to activate and sell their full catalogue of LTE broadband products just 92 days after billing contract signature.

YooMee could quickly capitalize on being the first LTE broadband provider in Côte d'Ivoire.

BETTER BILLING

MVNO for Business Customers

M-Mobility is a Danish MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator). Their focus is exclusively on business customers and they are market leading in this field.

M-Mobility offer their business customers:
  • Modern virtual switchboard for mobile and fixes phones
  • SIM cards for the whole customer organization
  • A single invoice for all communication services
  • A predictable monthly fee

Quotas and Services

With the M-Mobility business model, the quotas and services are defined at the customer level. These services and quotas are then shared between all the SIM cards of that particular customer.

Traditional billing systems define quotas and services for each individual SIM card. Most systems are even assuming that one SIM card is one customer.

Multiple SIM cards per customer

M-Mobility were struggling with these kind of limitations in their billing. Therefore when the time came to introduce interfaces to a second MNO, they decided to also replace their billing system.

Cleaning up with mob5g.net

When mob5g.net was introduced, M-Mobility instantly had support for their actual business model, as well as:
  • Modern web based user interface
  • Streamlined daily processes
  • Support for mixing SIM cards in 2 MNO networks

M-Mobility multi MNO billing

Active SIM cards:More than 10,000
Customer types:Only business
SIM cards per customer:Average around 20
Previous billing:Rator from CDRator
Serving MNO networks:Hi3G and TDC
