Push & Pull Service Supported
Location based services can either be push or pull in nature. Mocean LBS supports both this capability. It can either monitor Mobile Subscribers location updates via SS7 link monitoring or query the HLR to detect the location of a subscriber, allowing it to successfully provide the required service.
Subscriber Privacy Mechanism
Subscriber Privacy feature allows Mobile Operator to provide the capability to subscribers to control the information access of their location. This is particularly important in location based services such as Friend Finder, where a subscriber can decide whether his or her location can be disclosed and to whom it can be disclosed.
External LBS Application Integration
Recognising that the key to successful acceptance of a particular technology by subscriber is to provide many innovative services at affordable rates. Mocean LBS provides Mobile Operators the ability to do this by providing external application integration to Mocean LBS platform via HTTP/HTTPS. Mobile Operators can then open up to multiple Application Service Providers to develop more exciting location based services for it subscribers.
SS7 Probe Integration
Push location based services would require Mocean LBS to monitor the subscriber’s mobile handset location updates and trigger the correct services accordingly. Mocean LBS has its own SS7 probe component or it can also optionally integrate to Mobile Operator’s existing SS7 probe system, reducing the required investment.
Mocean SMSC comes equipped with reporting functions that allows the Mobile Operator to have a overall view of the SMS traffic transactions going through the system. Operators can then optimise their network capacity planning activities.
User Friendly OA&M Interface
Mocean SMSC comes with easy to use GUI to allow the operations team to easily manage the system. This provides shorter learning curve and more importantly, lowering possibility of human errors. As the GUI is web based, it also makes it easier for the operations team to access it anywhere over a secure connection.
The system captures transaction details and is able to send the Transaction Detail Records to the Mobile Operator’s billing system for further processing. Optionally, if customised integration to the billing system is required, this can be done.
System Performance Monitoring
Built in system monitoring capabilities provides status of system elements and traffic statistics for easy management. Alerts can also be sent out for notification purposes. The system can also optionally be integrated to external Network Monitoring system via SNMP, allowing Mobile Operators to have a consolidated monitoring platform.
