Both customers and operators have benefited from the GSM Association's approval of a set of standards which govern the formatting and handling of call records created by roaming subscribers. These standards, including TAP3, have paved the way for easy and secure exchange of both roaming records and additional customer information.
Operators can begin to recoup investments in UMTS licenses and infrastructure through new revenue streams—providing and billing for advanced services to high value roaming customers. CGI's next generation mobile roaming billing solution, CGI's INTransitTM, is the right solution—innovative, future proof, cost effective and rapidly implemented.
From the consumer perspective, TAP3 enhances existing roaming services while extending services to more customers by enabling prepaid roaming. It provides increased tariffing transparency in roaming, making it easier for the customer to understand the real costs.
A host of new services are enabled by these standards. Anything from value-added services—such as checking the location of the nearest pharmacy—to sophisticated IN services—such as short numbering and private numbering plans—are possible while traveling. In short, TAP3 simplifies roamers' lives and improves cost control.
From an operator's perspective, TAP3 is not just about complying with the latest industry standard for sending and receiving call records between operators. Capitalizing on TAP3 through INTransit enables:
