The Most Powerful Connectivity Management Platform for Mobile Network Operators
The rapid development of IoT services is putting new demands on Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) around the world to be able to deliver highly advanced telecommunication services. This seems to be a great challenge as neither legacy platforms used for personal communication nor, upon occasions, legacy IoT Connectivity Platforms can enable such services.
Among others, the following challenges have to be addressed:
- Serving Enterprises with global connectivity needs requires IoT Connectivity Serivce Providers to partner with MNOs from other countries and regions, redifining the traditional Roaming Agreements as a consequence
- Offering a variety of enterprise-specific IoT pricing and business models
- Managing all resources involved in the service delivery (roaming profiles, service sets, IP Addresses, SIM card types, network interfaces, IMSI/MSISDN ranges, roaming networks, etc.) requires specific capabilities
- Deploying solutions that boast site and geographical redundancy, with short implementation time and using Cloud resources
- Supporting different markets and affiliate companies, with multi-currency functionalities and different local tax levels
- Accessing a very broad set of APIs, which enables the access to virtually any function available in the solution
- Supporting hosted Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs/ hMVNOs) out of the box
Our platform has been designed to address the present and the future needs of MNOs offering IoT connectivity. Beside being a feature-rich software, it also provides strategically important capabilities and gives a competitive edge to MNOs.
Distributing logical instances across multiple sites to deliver: high resiliency and scalability (up to 500 million SIM cards currently). Local data privacy regulations, optimal data routing, etc. are also supported
Enabling advanced, out-of-the-box IoT account management, rating and billing capabilities, supporting the integration into legacy ERPs
Providing a central repository to manage all elements needed to offer an end-to-end IoT connectivity service
Providing network interfaces that make it possible to seamlessly connect to different networks (using native core network protocols, mediation elements or other legacy platforms)
Making a vast set of APIs available using an advanced Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)
Providing multilayered billing and nesting instances to enable hosted MVNOs
Our CMP manages connectivity through multiple carriers
MAVOCO – helps to connect MNOs, their partners and MVNOs into one powerful tool and enables new business opportunities
1 MANAGING RESOURCES
We empower MNOs to manage all resources and their corresponding business processes that an IoT Connectivity Provider can offer.
These include, SIM and eSIM cards in all possible variants, APNs and their IP allocation, VPNs, roaming profiles, service profiles, security profiles.
MAVOCO’s Resource Manager (RM) is network- and technology-independent and can serve as a superior central system for multiple networks and technologies.
2 ONLINE USAGE CONTROL
A real-time data consumption control system based on diameter and/ or radius protocol. In the OUC, data structures are created in an in-memory database which serve as counters for individual consumption elements.
These counters reduce the risk of fraud to a minimum or start alarms and rules when predefined thresholds are exceeded.
3 PRICE PLANS – DEFINITION AND EXECUTION
Our CMP provides capabilities to create Customer Price Plans. These Price Plans can then be assigned to specific Accounts and to specific Contracts within the Account. Advanced options such as sharing the usage of services across different units within the Account are fully supported.
Also, events can be managed as a part of a single price plan. For instance, a single distributor can easily create rating plans for his own purpose like for connectivity or any other events that have been defined.
The platform can work with any external Account and Billing Management Systems. Alternatively, the Service Provider can choose to use these functions as provided originally by our platform.
4 ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT AND BILLING
The Billing Manager manages the most important datasets, rules and settings that are used for the commercial handling of the IoT/ M2M businesses.
These include companies, people, products, price plans, costs, prices and invoices.
All business processes and interfaces related to manage the lifecycle of an Account are provided, from beginning to end. This includes all contractual and billing aspects of the account lifecycle, including the creation and assignment of new service products.
Models such as prepaid / postpaid services, multicountry, multi-currency or multiple taxation rules are principally supported.
Every Master Billing Manager can have many Client Billing Managers, Branded Resellers or IoT Solution Providers with their own Price Plans. Integration to existing ERP, Banking or Payment Platforms are also fundamentally supported.
5 ENTERPRISE AND USER PORTAL (EP)
Accounts defined in the platform can access their own usage data and self-administration functions using the Enterprise and User Portal.
This is a state-of-the-art “cockpit” that provides a very high value to both Service Providers and their customers alike. For example it enables to:
Create and manage Users, assign User rights, monitor User activity
Accounts can define sub-accounts and structure their assets as desired
All usage information is displayed in real time. Usage monitoring, alarms, reports or rules for automatic execution can be accessed, defined and managed independently by the Account
All functions are available via APIs. This makes it possible for the integration of these functions to external applications and service platforms
