Abstract

The system allows for a multitude of uses in the end-to-end functioning process. Resellers are able to manage network access for their subscribers through web interfaces. As a result, they do not have to deal directly with network operators and can provide various services through one simple interface. The same interface can be used for devices for different networks (GPRS, CDMA, iDEN, Mobitex, DataTAC).. Subscribers are able to manage value added services through web interfaces and device based interfaces. This functionality is provided to resellers, network operators, and subscribers for different device types on a variety of wireless networks. Subscribers are able to manage value added services through web interfaces and device based interfaces. Users do not need to interact with Customer Service centers for service activation. Carriers are able to manage value added services for subscribers via web interfaces and automated XML-based B2B interfaces. This enables the carrier to integrate their existing access/service provisioning processes easily with a value added service provider. The system’s flexibility allows automatic activation of service when first traffic is detected, and requires no external interaction from carrier. The service provider is able to manage configuration, access, billing, and reconciliation of all services relevant to mobile data communication devices. The system addresses many issues in the provisioning that are common for service providers, especially the manual processes that lead to errors, time lags, and interruption of service.
