At the recently concluded GSMA WAS#9 event which took place in Kuala Lumpur, Tara Neal, Executive Editor of The Fast Mode spoke to Benjamim Ferreira, Manager at WeDo Technologies, a provider of Risk Management solutions covering Revenue Assurance and Fraud Management for Operators around the world. Benjamim discussed among others the rise of roaming traffic across the globe and the impact of rating tariffs on Operators' roaming revenue. Benjamim spoke about the importance of Operators regaining control of their roaming business which has been in the past delegated to clearing houses and also the need for Operators to further fine-tune the ratings involved in this business segment.
Benjamim also highlighted the many ways Operators can enhance monetization of their roaming traffic, one of which is to use revenue assurance tools to mitigate leakages and the other being the deployment of fraud management tools to weed out fraud. For roaming in particular, Benjamim emphasized the need for Operators to have control of the agreements and tariffs and to develop internal capabilities to successfully manage this fast growing business segment.
