Enable mobile calling at the expense of the called parties and launch new reverse charging services. A Collect Call service allows the calling party to place a call at the expense of the called party. Prior to connection the Called party is asked for approval. In the past, collect calls were operator-assisted, later on available via toll free number and now adapted for mobile networks.
Mobile Collect calling fits the needs of different market segments and has use cases allowing new revenue generation:
Opencode provides various reverse billing options adapted to today’s marketing needs. Full call charging to the Called party, sharing the cost of call among the parties, or billing to third parties are supported.
Connected to the switching and billing core network infrastructure, Opencode’s solution achieves other reverse charging revenues open by the Collect Call service. By introducing a new Roaming Collect Call service, roamers can receive calls at the expense of the Calling party.
