The profitability of your roaming business is constantly under pressure because of lower IOT rates agreed. This means that your “roaming enabler” cost will have to keep track with this development in order to prevent a margin squeeze.
The relevant roaming enabler services are:
1. Data clearing and financial clearing
2. Voice termination costs using different carriers
3. SS7 and LTE signaling
4. GRX and IPX
6. Traffic steering tools
7. Testing tools & QoS monitoring
8. Virtual home environment services
9. Roaming & SMS Hubs
10. FTE count
Market price levels for the above mentioned services tend to decrease fast.
