Global Internet penetration is at an all time high, with rates in mature markets such as North America and Europe exceeding 80%. These statistics indicate clearly that demand for IP services is being met wherever it’s needed, but how can operators continue to maximize profits as markets become more and more saturated?
Let’s start with the simple rule that lowering OPEX yields higher profit margins. Now you’re probably thinking, how can I further reduce the cost of my operations?
The answer lies in simplification and automation.
Service providers across the world spend lots of time and money developing and maintaining data storage systems for provisioning services that often prove to be inefficient, resource intensive, and difficult to integrate and maintain. The increased number of queries sent from these inefficient systems can also strain the provisioning service resulting in lower quality of performance.
Whether it’s for troubleshooting, lawful interception requests, fraud detection or subscriber identification, the ability to have access to lease information at your fingertips is an undeniable need for today’s service providers and network operators.
With the addition of a centralized and automated lease data service, you gain numerous ways to reduce operational costs while enhancing the performance of your provisioning service.
In addition to cost reduction and provisioning service optimization, an automated centralized lease data service can assist with detection, prevention, and management of fraud in your network. Statistics indicate that In North America alone, cable providers incur more than $1 billion in lost revenue from fraud each year. Minimizing the risk of fraud on your network can help save you from adding to these statistics.
The advantages are clear. Reducing OPEX with automated lease collection enables you to optimize your business processes in a variety of ways while reducing fraudulent activity. This delivers huge value in a very tangible way: more profit for your business.
