VAS supplier management will also be enhanced by new sicap gateway features, including advanced service charging scenario.
Tunisie Telecom will deploy the sicap platform to manage peaks generated by services which generate high volumes of SMS traffic. TV show polls, quizzes and prize draws will from now on be routed, sorted and charged for within the sicap platform. Connected to the gateway in minutes by Tunisie Telecom staff, service providers are allocated a revenue-sharing environment for efficient Telco 2.0 business. A supplier who brings out a TV-driven SMS voting campaign generates a strong but short-lived peak in messaging volume compared to the linear volume requirements of a service such as daily bank balance updates by SMS. The needs of each type of service are seamlessly handled by the sicap platform.
Mr. Nizar Bouguila, Chief Technology Officer at Tunisie Telecom explained that “We can now very quickly connect new service providers and get to market with efficient billing of new services, a strong plus in gaining and maintaining subscriber confidence and an excellent brand image. Tunisie Telecom subscribers, at the heart of our preoccupations, ultimately gain in choice and value for money for their entertainment and information services.”
Mr Armin L. Rau, Managing Director EMENA of sicap added that “Seven years after the introduction of the first sicap platform in the Tunisie Telecom network, our partnership has evolved to ensure that Tunisie Telecom is ready to capitalise on messaging service opportunities. We are proud to count Tunisie Telecom among our long-term valued customers.”
