Starhome Mach Data Clearing comprises standard verification, validation, conversion and processing of roaming billing files in full accordance with the industry requirements, ensuring that files are promptly, accurately and efficiently delivered to the mobile operators. Starhome Mach sets up, tests and operates all the connectivity required with the clients’ roaming partners for the exchange of TAP files. Through Starhome Mach , clients have one single point of access to all roaming partners, other clearing houses and roaming hubs in the market.
To reduce the leakage in roaming revenues due to wrong data exchange and delays in transfer of TAP files, Starhome Mach Data Clearing provides clients with repairs of many TAP errors, configurable validation thresholds plus an online TAP file control tool integrated in the Unity portal. Daily reports are also available for reporting all missing, pending and rejected files.
According to clients’ specific needs, standard data clearing can be enhanced by additional flexible data management services enabling operators to be strongly competitive. An essential service is IOT Check and the possibility to apply IOT repairs. This service prevents incorrectly priced data to enter the billing systems of clients and to send wrongly charged records to roaming partners. Therefore it eliminates revenue loss due to sending undercharged records to roaming partners and prevents subscriber churn due to incorrect charging. This reliable validation performed in strict accordance with the IOT defined in the bilateral roaming agreements allows the definition of several and customised handling scenarios in case of error findings. Moreover, a dedicated team of IOT analysts monitor the cases of IOT discrepancies beyond configurable tolerance levels.
