Steering Configuration

Steering of Roaming is an essential part of a comprehensive roaming strategy. Steering helps maximize profits from wholesale roaming agreements and improve the subscriber experience.

It is essential for steering platforms to correctly map MSC/VLR addresses of incoming location updates to unique operators. Failure in this mapping will result in an incorrect distribution of roamers. The challenge here is that Global Title ranges change by the week. These changes mean the steering configuration needs to be regularly updated and maintained.

Our steering configuration tool dynamically generates the shortest possible list of GT’s that uniquely identify roaming partners. We can reduce a normal list of GT’s by 30-40 % which means less day to day work in maintaining it. Based on IR21/85 updates from partners the tool automatically sends out notifications of required changes
