ConneXion Bern 2017
To the few of you reading this who couldn’t attend ConneXion 2016, I’m afraid you missed out on something big. Your roaming colleagues the world over broke all records when they turned up in Bern a couple of weeks ago!
We already look very much forward to the challenge of gathering all of you at our HQ. There’s always room for more ConneXioners and we are already exploring ways to comfortably accommodate everyone: removal of walls, building of extra floors, mounting of a double-decker tent… Other ideas welcome BUT it’s got to be right here at Nussbaumstrasse 25, as always.Read more...
OK the aesthetics of this design are questionable, but hey! it pictures what we wanted to tell well enough: namely, if this is a flower, you want to be right in the middle of it, where the nectar is the sweetest and the petals make for full cover. This is a somewhat botanic but quite intuitive view of the Key2roam Platform: one service and all Data streams correlated for optimal intelligence in roaming reporting and monitoring.
Consolidate your Key2roam Platform to achieve unprecedented fluidity and make your Big Data talk! Some of you can’t do this quite yet? No need to worry if you’re still missing some of our services. It’s OK. Every additional service provided and every additional stream passing the Key2roam Platform already brings you scores of new Apps and additional features. Let’s see if I can give a few examples…
Ah yes, Profiler… So: let’s say you are a Comfone Signalling customer and your very own Key2roam Platform is already fed with healthy doses of MSUs. Hmm... how about a second course? You start serving the Platform with your TAPs as well. Oh look -> Silent Roamers!
Heaps of them, revealing themselves to you with their IMSIs and making you cry in despair at the now-ever-so-clear sight of your missed revenues… OK, let’s make that a 3-course dinner then: plug in GRX to your Key2roam Platform and you can now serve GTP for dessert -> Silent Data Roamers! With all of this high granularity profiling, your retail colleagues will love you. And that’s just one of the many menus on offer!
Talking about tracing… Did you know that you could trace absolutely everything? Signalling MAP, S6a, GTP, CDRs, IMSIs, ledgers, files and more… International Roaming Services should be just One Service where all items can be traced.
Correlating Data streams makes us all so much smarter when monitoring our roaming activities once we’ve accepted that TAPs, Invoices, Mbps and MSUs don’t hate each other. Let them all flow through the same platform. We’ve already built the bridges between all the Tracing Apps!
Someone owes you money so you pay them… uh? I agree with you: this is completely absurd. Yet, many operators do this every month with their roaming partners! So what about you gain full transparency of what’s going on with your Financial Clearing provider? Use Comfone FC.
Take the wheel and start managing your payments better! Please talk to us about Financial Clearing, the Financial Tracker and all related Apps which will dramatically improve your financial flows.
Thank you Laeticia for being a power-user of our Discount Agreement Management solution and for presenting to us the way you work with our Apps in such an effective and intuitive way! Your presentation brought a very valuable perspective on this suite of Roaming Relations Monitoring Apps.
LTE & VoLTE Thank you Khalil for sharing the LTE and VoLTE insights of a market leader with all ConneXion attendees. We all want you back at the speaker stand next year! Just to hammer the nail all the way to the other side of the plank: VoLTE roaming is a must.
So there’s a lot of work ahead for everyone, unless of course you leverage with the ever-so-versatile Key2roam Hub! We’ll be happy to test your network with Verizon for VoLTE roaming as soon as you request it.
Employee of the Month So sometimes we actually “outsource” part of our developments to our customers and we don’t even pay them. Sounds strange? Well everybody’s happy at the end! Thank you Eduardo for demonstrating how your detailed requirements turned into a new major Key2roam Platform App: Jaspersoft, now fully integrated into Pulse and fed by all our service Data-Marts! I personally savoured your clear disclosure of the time frame which you and your Comfone colleagues worked on. What was it? Two months from Need to (beta) Reality? So there’s a lot of work ahead for everyone, unless of course you leverage with the ever-so-versatile Key2roam Hub! We’ll be happy to test your network with Verizon for VoLTE roaming as soon as you request it.
Shopping online during office hours? Totally OK Been to the Pulse Shop yet? It’s worth a visit! The attractiveness of our offers in your very own Pulse Shop might very well shatter your company’s purchasing time frame which you always thought was written in stone. Your Pulse Shop is furnished and maintained by your Comfone sales representative. A consolidated offer is one click away. When talking about Carrier or Clearing services, this approach might seem to you a little bit hmm… demystifying?
YES it is. Santa never really existed and migrations are easy. Trust us, we know: we’ve done more service migrations last week than you’ve done in the past 10 years!
Special thanks to our partners who deliver 3rd Party Apps on the Key2roam Platform. We’ve been through thick and thin together and we look forward to having you with us again at ConneXion 2017 for dedicated presentations of your value added services.
Key2roam is an OPEN platform because You work with us. We’re proud of what we make but we can’t always make it all. Evolved Intelligence, Roamsmart and Roamsys ensure that the Key2roam Platform is always quick to market with any App that any operator may need at any point in time! Your participation in the maintenance of our agility is highly valued. And thank you to Google for your presentation and for putting a Big name beside a Big concept: Big Data!
As part of the continued improvements to visROAM, Comfone has just released support for a new Discount model: ‘Fixed Pay’. This model allows users to specify a fixed amount for all services. The traffic can be capped or uncapped for each service. This supports discount models like: Pay X amount and get n voice minutes, n SMSs and n KB traffic volume included.
Revealing intelligence that is hidden deep in the vast amount of roaming data by coupling both the Clearing and SS7 Service layers together is a key element of the Profiler App - A new Comfone service that is based on the processing of big data.
The administration of multiple accounts and currencies is one of the challenges of managing finance in the roaming department. Taking this challenge into account, Comfone’s Financial Tracker provides full transparency for every single Financial Clearing transaction based on real-time data from Comfone’s Financial Clearing system, combined with all of the data from Credit Suisse bank accounts.
The Financial Tracker offers full transparency for all financial transactions and balances of all concerned bank accounts including:
Manage your partner relationships with Pulseforce, one of Comfone's newest, most innovative Apps. Pulseforce integrates a complete portfolio of roaming management data into one consolidated App.
The App simplifies the Roaming Manager’s daily business operations by presenting the data in a user-friendly, easily accessible format, including but not limited to:
