Value proposition to partner MNO partners

The SmartRoaming solution represents a WIN WIN approach to the MNO partners. It is specifically beneficial to MNO’s that are not affiliated with other global alliances and are at a competitive disadvantage in their home markets, since most roaming (in and out) users choose competitors not only for roaming services but for all their mobile services.

 

Benefits for MNO

  • Seamless integration,
  • Low cost roaming to strategic destinations
  • Guaranteed inflow traffic of SmartRoaming subscribers into partner's MNO home market
  • Reduce roaming direct cost,
  • Reduce MNO partner's roaming overhead
  • New value added services provide MNO partners additional revenue from a set of new products that are currently not available to them. These include the provisioning of multiple local numbers to international destinations at or near local rates, where the revenue will include
    • RC charges on the VLN
    • IDD charges for all MT calls to the VLN

 

Value proposition to the end subscriber

  • The convenience of the SR SIM card – With SR’s “All-in-1 SIM card,” the subscriber owns permanent visitor local numbers in the U.S., China, UK HK and India … that remain active even while traveling abroad. No longer will the subscriber experience the frustration of missed calls, reduced call quality associated with traditional roaming, the hassle of switching SIM cards, or the shock of outrageous international calling surcharges.
  • With Smart Roaming the subscriber never misses a call – Smart Roaming provides an automatic and transparent call routing feature which allows the subscriber to answer all incoming calls from the subscriber’s home country or foreign countries at the same time. In addition, SR’s visitor local mobile phone numbers remain “active” 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, allowing the subscriber to be reached by friends, family and business associates no matter where they travel.

A local number will automatically appear on the subscriber's handset screen when the subscriber is located in one of these territories, allowing the subscriber to make calls within the territory while only paying local rates.
  • Smart Roaming’s unique “Send & End dialing process” connects the subscriber to the dialed party when making international calls based on SR's preferred LCR. This results in huge savings for our SR subscriber when compared with standard international dialing rates.
