A next-gen interconnect billing or wholesale telecom billing solution secures revenue streams for service providers by enabling them to charge other operators for use of their network infrastructure for voice, data, SMS, and other services. With constantly increasing reliance on data and customers expecting lower voice rates, interconnect partnerships become necessary for service providers. Interconnect partner management platforms let them efficiently monetize their networks, manage their partners, and plug revenue leaks.
