Challenge Strategy & Solution Features Result

Challenge

As a dealer of SMS traffic SmartcomTECH needed a rating system on SMS-gateway (in this situation was used Kannel – https://www.kannel.org/). It was also necessary to have an ability for building different reports by the traffic and rates. So, SmartcomTECH decided to develop a system that will be built over the SMS-gateway and gather all required information.

Strategy & Solution

After couple negotiation sessions SmartcomTECH and Arixess agreed to deeply learn all capabilities of Kannel SMS-gateway and then decide what is the best approach to fulfill requirements to the SMS Billing & Reporting system.

As a solution Arixess advised to develop a system that should utilize a mechanism for downloading and parsing of Kannel’s CDRs, save required SMS-parameters into a dedicated DataBase, real-time SMS-rating based on previously entered prices, and custom static reporting by SMS-traffic.

Arixess developed a bunch of tools for integration with Kannel SMS-gateway, e.g. reseller accounts management, SMS-routing rules management, recent connections list to Kannel, management of the gateway services, show real-time SMS-traffic, etc. As a next step Arixess developed features for SMS-traffic billing, such as management of SMS prices and resellers, management of MCC-MNC tables, rating based on SMS status, multiple currencies support. And as a result the SMS Billing & Reporting system provided SmartcomTECH with a facility to build different custom reports, send invoices to clients in different formats and through various channels and many other useful things.
