Vodafone Oman has tapped Syniverse to enable 5G roaming services in the Sultanate of Oman.
Syniverse’s Clearing and Settlement solution will allow Vodafone Oman to drive efficiencies by using a robust set of cloud applications designed to automate and optimise all workflows needed by the operator to address its 5G roaming business.
Vodafone Oman will also benefit from Syniverse’s Roaming Fraud Protection and Universal Commerce for BCE solutions to monetise wholesale roaming traffic using the GSMA’s Billing and Charging Evolution (BCE) industry standard. Universal Commerce for BCE is a blockchain based solution which enables new 5G enabled monetisation models such as network slicing, and monetisation of new 5G enabled use cases such as the internet of Things (IoT).
Universal Commerce for BCE also permits reports between Vodafone Oman and mobile operators to be exchanged upon previously agreed bilateral agreements for use in support of wholesale invoicing and settlement. By implementing these new methods for monetising wholesale roaming, Syniverse allows for more accurate and efficient reconciliation of network usage between Vodafone Oman and its roaming partners.
Sami Saber, Sales Director of Middle East Africa at Syniverse, said: “Syniverse adds value by offering Vodafone Oman streamlined workflow management tools that underpin the support of their 5G roaming services, thus making it more efficient and profitable for them to grow their business.”
