End user billing
Rated CDR Files
The rating service of Tribess generates CDR files that are made available to the service provider. The contents of these files are based upon the requirements of the service provider.
Invoice line items
The billing process of Tribess generates invoice line items that can be processed to an invoice by the service provider’s billing application. The contents of the invoice line items is fully configurable and contain several levels of details.
Tribess generated pdf invoices in reseller layout, showing the invoice line items. The invoices are provided with the necessary data from customer and service provider. Monthly recurring and one-off charges can be included. Invoicing involves both debit as credit.
Dialed number correction
It may occur that the source CDRS contain destination numbers with too many digits. This happen when the customer calls an IVR en makes menu selections. Tribess removes the extra digits, allowing the rating process to work with correct destination numbers.
Tribess can optionally provide B-number masking of destination numbers that are listed on COIN’s BNA list.
The rating process can be set to run at specfic intervals (e.g. each hour or each 5 minutes) or realtime.
The interaction between service provider/carrier and Tribess is facilitated by an XML API. This API is used to communicate customer details to Tribess, e.g. which rateplan is applicable to customer account. Further, the API is used to collect invoice line items and rated CDRs.
Rated CDR file distribution
Tribess can optionally take care of the distribution of CDR files to external parties (customers, resellers, carriers etc).
Several reports are available, showing the results and performance of the billing process.
Destinations can be defined by one or more prefixes (dial codes). Rating can be performed on the prefix of the destination number, the origination number or both.
Additional Destination Indicator
In addition to prefix rating, destinations can be defined by other indicators. In The Netherlands e.g. these could be COIN operator code, service number tariff, tariff type and VAT%.
Tribess supports bundles propositions in all of its manifestation: individual (per MSISDN/number), group bundels, single service, mixed service, offset rates at different volume levels etc.
It is possible to apply rateplans that combine different services into a single proposition, e.g. a bundle combining fixed & mobile telephony services.
It is possible to group destinations into zones/regions. This applies to both terminating as originating regions.
Tribess supports rating of (mobile) roaming traffic, also in case of CAMEL home routing.
On-net rating is supported in various forms, e.g. on-net for calls from one customer number to another, for calls from one reseller´s customer to another customer of that reseller, for calls from one service provider´s customer to another customer of the service provider etc.
Tribess can provide several threshold levels in the rated CDRs. This can be very convenient when it comes to showing the status of bundle usage (e.g. 50%, 80, 100%).
Service providers can use their own definitions for peak/off peak/night/weekend hours. Multiple timebands can be used for different call scenario´s.
The rounding units of sessions (calls, data usage) can be configured at will. Different setting can be applied to different call scenario´s.
Tribess has a realtime COIN CRDB connection and processes mutations (servicenumber rates, operator code) in the CDR rating process.
