Syniverse to Reduce Costs, Revenue Leakage for Andorra Telecom

Syniverse announced the deployment of its Interconnect Services for Andorra Telecom, a full-service network operator that manages and operates exclusively in the Principality of Andorra. The services allow Andorra Telecom to realign its interconnect billing business as a managed service. Syniverse's Interconnect Services will improve Andorra Telecom's cost containment and management of its wholesale interconnect margins. Interconnect billing eliminates capital expenditures and reduces operating costs. It also cuts revenue leakage by minimizing the number of call detail record (CDR) errors through proactive error detection. With levels of unreconciled interconnect CDRs creating significant issues for some operators, Syniverse's services aim to significantly reduce that error rate to close to zero. In addition to reducing the cost and complexity of maintaining an in-house interconnect billing function, Syniverse's Interconnect Services come with dedicated 24/7 service and support staff, benefitting Andorra Telecom by freeing up internal resources. With the advent of new IP-based services and the intensification of wholesale competition, the traditional environment of voice interconnection is rapidly shifting. As operators examine the sustainability of maintaining in-house interconnect billing, cloud-based solutions like Syniverse's Interconnect Services are becoming viable options to reduce costs and increase efficiency.
