BICS is launching SMART Webvision, a solution for the monitoring, tracing and reporting of Roaming Traffic on SS7 Signalling. Soon the platform will support also LTE Diameter, LTE Data and GPRS Roaming Exchange network (GRX) technologies.
SMART Webvision allows MNOs, MVNOs and roaming service providers to make intelligent business decisions based on analysis of subscriber behaviour, usage trends and network performance. The analytics produced enable operators to modify their data roaming service proposition and develop new tariffs to counteract pricing caps and drive additional revenues from international roaming. The solution also provides information to support targeted marketing and promotion campaigns.
Access modules to monitor, measure, trace and analyse operator roaming traffic
SMART Webvision allows operators to optimise the roaming experience and boost revenues from roaming. The service can track how much roaming traffic is currently on the network, identify if the network is experiencing any SS7/LTE/GRX interconnection problems and can determine the quality of service delivered to each end user. The service can also identify revenue leakage and determine if the capacity roadmap is aligned with forecasts.

Guarantee quality roaming experience, anticipate traffic changes and define the right roaming strategy
Mobile data roaming revenues will grow significantly over the next five years, mainly driven by an increasing usage of data services by subscribers travelling abroad. Operators are aware of this evolution and are looking at different ways to monitor roaming traffic on different technologies and levels. SMART gives operators a 360° view on their roaming business enabling them to fine-tune their roaming strategy.
Experience SMART Webvision, in near real-time through a seamless web access
SMART Webvision is composed out of different modules (SS7 Signalling, LTE Diameter Signalling, IP Data on GRX, IPX Transport) that can be activated separately on three levels: monitoring functionalities, track and trace capabilities and business intelligence. The information is provided in near real-time through a seamless web access. Additional features such as the ‘time zones conversion support’ provide operators with greater clarity and accuracy in terms of data analysis.
In a nutshell, what SMART Webvision provides to mobile operators?
- Visibility on network performance to guarantee service levels
- Monitoring and tracking of subscribers for problem identification and resolution in real time
- Identifying consumer preferences to launch targeted marketing campaigns
