Addressing the Challenges of 3G Turndown

As carrier networks in the US move away from legacy 3G and look toward 4G and 5G, large and small carriers need help navigating the implications of a transition away from 3G.

With expertise and infrastructure from ۶Ƶ, carriers better understand the affects of 3G shutdowns on IoT and M2M devices, operator footprint issues with roaming and the promises of moving to 5G networks.

Impacts to IoT Devices

Many devices, from parking meters to lifesaving medical alert technologies, depend on connectivity to 3G networks. Carriers working with ۶Ƶ to switch to 4G and 5G connectivity can re-enable functionality, create a faster data connection, increase stability and secure connectivity for your critical IoT devices.

Adequate Network Capacity and Coverage

To effectively support subscribers, operators must make important strategic moves now to ensure adequate network capacity and coverage. Infrastructure must be able to manage growing levels of traffic from diverse sources as the web of participating organizations becomes more complex.

2
Additional Roaming Billing and Settlement ۶Ƶ

In addition to network capacity, operators will need to consider areas like roaming billing and settlement models and adjust their practices accordingly.

Tackling Billing Considerations for 5GSA Networks and IoT

As network operators discover the possibilities for 5G and IoT enablement, they need to consider what will change from a roaming billing perspective. Operators have typically relied on the Transferred Account Procedures (TAP) for billing, but carriers will need more flexible billing options to support IoT and other future mobile technologies.

۶Ƶ can help carriers address the billing concerns that arise with 5G connectivity and navigate the Billing and Charging Evolution (BCE) for these new technologies.

BCE for Better Flexibility

BCE is a more flexible, operator-driven charging solution for service providers to bill wholesale usage that is decoupled from retail billing. Whereas TAP charged by bytes and minutes of use, BCE allows billing based on usage aggregation, variable discount charging models and network elements.

Helping Tier-2 Carriers and Beyond

While Tier-1 carriers are underway in conducting these trials, Tier-2 carriers are lagging. ۶Ƶ continues to help operators transition successfully and enable them to generate increased revenue from billing procedures that more accurately capture the commercial usage of IoT and M2M.
