SC.Wi-Fi Charger

Mobile Subscriber Wi-Fi Traffic Billing Platform

The growth of demand for data transfer services in mobile access networks generates additional income for MNOs. There are several advantages from using Wi-Fi for such Internet access when compared with 2G/3G/4G access, so Wi-Fi is very popular among smartphone users. Therefore, by extending its presence to the Wi-Fi services market, the MNO may improve the loyalty of its subscribers and increase their numbers through partner interaction.

The Svyazcom solution monitors and sets tariffs for Internet access from heterogeneous networks, including partner networks. The primary control mechanism is interaction via the RADIUS protocol with various access equipment. The solution helps differentiate billing of one's own subscribers from those of other MNOs, and take into account the peculiarities of access points and access controllers of different manufacturers.
