The solution is apparently based on proven roaming principles, preserving the user cellular experience including voice, data, SMS and all supplementary services while using a WiFi hotspot when roaming. This apparently differentiates the Accuris Networks solution from other WiFi Hotspot roaming solutions available today
According to Aidan Dillon, CEO at Accuris Networks “Roaming revenue contributes significantly to a mobile operators bottom line however with competitive offers from VoIP providers, mobile operators roaming revenue is seriously threatened. At Accuris Networks our aim is to assist mobile operators in maintaining their position in the roaming value chain while at the same time increasing the level of profitability generated from roaming traffic.”
Dillon went on to say “What makes AccuROAM different from other mobile VoIP products available on the market today is: It’s a mobile phone based solution so subscribers use the same phone number and have the same customer experience while connected to either GSM or WiFi. Subscribers use their mobile phone to make mobile VoIP calls and not their PC. AccuROAM supports both incoming and outgoing calls to WiFi connected phones, unlike some VoIP solutions that require the subscriber to rely on incoming calls to be handled by GSM and only support outgoing VoIP calls.”
The benefit to the subscriber is cheaper roaming calls. While the benefit to the home operator is greater profit margin on the roaming call as there is no revenue being leaked to a foreign GSM network, which normally receives largest proportion of roaming revenue. The end result is that Net Profit on roaming revenue can apparently be increased by 30%.
Well, we all like cheaper calls, don’t we – and certainly if they are international ones! Please order me up one portion of seamless roaming WiFi for the next time I am travelling …. !
