Acision launches location-based charging with Seeker Wireless; Mobile operators worldwide can now offer highly accurate zone-based charging to rival the fixed network
HomeZone enables cost-effective, highly accurate and reliable zone-based charging, allowing mobile operators to attack the fixed-line telephony market with competitive tariffs while protecting existing revenue streams. With HomeZone any service, including voice and data, can be rated at a different tariff.
Acision’s HomeZone supports an operator’s existing handset choice by using a SIM-based applet to ensure the accurate identification of the user’s charging location. The zone status is communicated to both the service provider and the user, enabling them to use the service with confidence.
Simon Dallyn, Senior Vice President of Charging at Acision commented, “Location-based charging represents a substantial opportunity for operators looking to secure fixed line market share without worrying about inaccurate zoning cannibalising revenue. We chose to work with Seeker Wireless because their revolutionary zone detection technology delivers the most accurate, reliable and economical zoning solution in the market. We have already seen strong interest in the service and expect zone charging to feature strongly in service providers’ toolsets in 2008.”
