Mobileum announces fair usage policy support mandated by EU regulation

Telecom roaming and analytics solutions provider Mobileum has introduced the advanced version of Roam-Like-at-Home (RLAH) enabler, with fair usage policy (FUP) support to meet the guidelines mandated by EU Regulation 2015/2120, the company said.

While the detailed FUP guidelines are open for public consultation by the European Commission and are yet to be finalized, Mobileum´s RLAH enabler offers highly flexible policy rules to cover a broad definition of periodic travel, and thus ready to support FUP even before the regulations fully come into force. This will enable roaming providers to apply a ´fair use policy´ to prevent misuse or anomalous use of regulated roaming services, thus, when the roamer exceeds fair use limits, a surcharge may be applied.

The European Union (EU) Council has set June 15, 2017 as the deadline to end roaming surcharges. However, some mobile operators have already seized this opportunity to offer an ´inclusive pricing´ model to subscribers for data usage, limiting the threat of roaming bill-shock and induce usage uplift.

The RLAH enabler solution is an extension of Mobileum´s proven solution for compliance with EU Regulation III Single IMSI enabler, which has already been deployed by CSPs across the EU. The policy rules within the RLAH enabler can measure actual roaming usage against allowances, subject to FUP limitations, for regulated traffic in real time and also send notifications to subscribers when they reach the allowance limits.

Mobileum helps CSPs leverage the power of predictive analytics to deliver monetizable insights that drive business transformation at 617 CSPs across 150 countries. Mobileum´s Wisdom-Action platform powers solutions across domains such as voice and data roaming, IoT/M2M, video, WiFi Hetnets, Travel, Counter fraud, Data abuse, and CEM. Mobileum is based in California´s Silicon Valley, with offices across the globe.
