Virgin Mobile France is the largest Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) in France with 1.7 million subscribers. The business recently invested in a full MVNO infrastructure and now has the ability to use networks from both Orange and French telecommunications provider, SFR, for its customers. It also has the freedom to form additional domestic and international direct partner agreements including for voice, data and SMS/MMS interconnection. CSG Interconnect will automate partner management, carrier-to-carrier rating, billing and settlement and help speed disputes management and reconciliation. It will provide Virgin Mobile France with detailed financial reporting as well as interfaces to other systems. Therefore, in an incredibly competitive environment, Virgin Mobile France wants to establish an effective partner settlement management process and optimise the wholesale revenue opportunity. According to the operator, the CSG Interconnect® solution realised a positive return on investment within just several weeks of implementation by automatically identifying and processing partner traffic passing through its network, including complex traffic not spotted before, then applying agreed charges.

CSG Interconnect is a market-leading wholesale business management solution handling every kind of network traffic for local, regional and worldwide operators in a single, highly integrated platform. The solution is part of CSG’s Wholesale Business Management Solution (WBMS) which provides highly-efficient partner management, optimized traffic trading and routing through the network, accurate billing and settlement for all services including traditional voice, data, IP/content and GSMA roaming services.

“Inter-carrier traffic is a huge contributor to operator costs and revenues,” said George Fraser, Vice President of EMEA, CSG International. “CSG Interconnect offers operators the opportunity to maximize the returns they get not just by connecting with neighboring networks, but with the rest of the world.”
