Roaming abroad billing - as easy as one-two-three

Supporting even the most complex plans, BillRun enables mobile service providers to bill all subscribers who are travelling abroad and using a foreign network for calling or data usage. Examples of such plans may include: A fixed price for a specific date range in selected countries; or: A predefined data package size, defined for use in two specific countries, within certain dates, for a fixed price per day.

In addition to many roaming plans that are often based on a predefined duration abroad, here is an example of an innovative annual plan uniquely supported by BillRun: Free text messages and calls to any number in the home country, plus data usage abroad for a predefined number of days from the beginning of the year; usage exceeding that number of days is charged at normal rates.

Additional examples of plans supported by BillRun, enable free calls from abroad to a subscriber’s home network; or: A predefined data package for using Facebook, Waze, WhatsApp and other programs, limited to each billing cycle period, or per day – a plan which could be offered either locally or when travelling abroad.

On holiday, on top of the world

Responding automatically to each event of a mobile user attempting to either call or log on to the internet, BillRun detects whether the user has exceeded their calling or data package balance abroad, and either authorizes or prevents the action accordingly. Next, to determine the calling rate and calculate the cost, the system accesses the relevant rate information from each MCC (mobile country code) field according to the country where the call is originating.

For prepaid users, pricing is done in real-time. For postpaid subscribers BillRun is able to process files sent from a clearing house through TAP3 (transferred account procedure, version 3) protocol, or directly from the network provider of the relevant foreign country. Rating is normally calculated based on the serving network field, but could depend on a combination of source and destination countries, for example, if the package offers a fixed rate for calling from/to any one of a list of countries.  

Using BillRun, Prepaid and Postpaid subscribers alike can be notified via a text message when they are about to reach their balance limit while abroad. Subscribers could be alerted that usage will soon be terminated, including an offer to upgrade their plan. Such alerts could also be beneficial in preventing a bill shock reaction later on. BillRun supports additional features such as national roaming – enabling providers to view listings of each foreign network where calls originated – highly helpful for providers that support multiple networks; An SDR currency field is used for computing billing between operators.
