  • 1. © 2013 – PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION OF CVIDYA The Impact of Data Traffic Explosion and LTE on Revenue Assurance and Risk. Rodrigo Otávio Moreira Gonçalves - VIVO Brazil Marcos Teixeira - cVidya September 17, 2013 IBC Conference
  • 2. 2 Agenda  Trends that Changed the Telecom Market – Challenges & Expectations from the Revenue Assurance Department  Brazil Telecom Market  Revenue Assurance at VIVO – Past & Current Challenges and Needs – Future Challenges and Needs 2
  • 3. 3 The Trends That Changed The Telecom World The combination of Smartphones and LTE  Changed the service consumption patterns of users  Changed the underlying technologies  Resulted in new price plans  Changed the structure of the revenue streams within the operator  Introduced significant risks in leakages & fraud
  • 4. 4 4G LTE World Coverage
  • 5. 5 Data Traffic Explosion
  • 6. 6 Challenges  Business Approach & Analytical Capabilities – How to raise the operational level to business levels? – How to improve profitability? – How to enhance the expertise in and knowledge of RA? – How do I achieve analytical capabilities as part of the RA solution and utilize existing data for other uses?  New Arenas (Mobile Money, M2M, Mobile Data, Cloud)  How to limit exposure to revenue leakage & costs from lost opportunities due to the increasing number of services and complexity of networks? Real-time Provisioning & Huge Volumes of Information – How to adapt the RA operation to handle real-time provisioning and charging? – How to handle  the  “Data  Traffic  Explosion”?
  • 7. 7 The Need From RA Departments – To  Be  More…  Be prepared to handle threats and challenges  Be ready for upcoming technologies and products  Assess risks of services & products before launch  Assume more methodical approaches to prevent leakage  Achieve more using fewer resources  Align  with  company’s  business  goals  Include recovery as part of the RA domain
  • 8. 8 Brazilian Telecommunication Market  Current Figures (as of end of 2012) – Market still under expansion (mainly for Mobile, Broadband, Internet and Cable TV users) – 267M Mobile – 44M Fixed – 17M Broadband – 16M Cable TV – 94M Internet Users – 3G partially deployed among the country, 4G just started (2013)  Current Figures for Vivo (as of end of 2012) – Leader in Mobile Market (around 28% as of 2Q2013), with 76M mobiles, USD 10B FY Net Income, ARPU BRL 22.6 and MOU 126
  • 9. 9 Revenue Assurance At Vivo  Innovation in Managing & Expanding RA Controls – Creating a consistent system for implementing strategy – Implementing methodological approaches based on risk assessment – Ensuring that RA-controls are part of the launch cycle & planning of new services  Key Success Factors – RA Control Efficiency - actual relevance of the controls and ensured ROI during the implementation phase. Continuous review of control rules and implementation strategies – Knowledge & Maturity - key personnel with seniority and in-depth knowledge of Revenue Assurance – Partnerships - between RA, IT and Vendor teams for leveraging monetary results – Control Strategy - establishing a process vs. simply implementing new controls Main Challenges
  • 10. 10 Control Review Process Lab Testing Feasibility (Process & controls) Deliverable: Control Spec Owner: RA Development Production Optimization, Pre-implementation Deliverable: Control Rules, Preliminary Results Owner: RA/ IT Automation, Execution Deliverables: Alarms, Cases, Reports, etc. Owner: IT Up to 3 Months Up to 3 Months Ready To Go!
  • 11. 11 Control Review Process  New Products / Technologies – LTE, Quad Play, Market Aggressiveness (lower margins) – Shorter time-to-market with increased risks – New technologies with aggressive schedule for coverage – Knowledge gap within the company (IT, Engineer, RA, Fraud Management, etc.) – New system & network elements adding much more complexity for existing controls  Thinking Ahead - Internally – Improve the relationships between the different areas within the company – IT, commercial, regulatory, marketing and other departments – Improving communications with top management  Continuous  Review… – Always revisiting controls/processes with focus on monetary results
  • 12. 12 New  “Old”  Concerns…  Data Services/Products Usage – Surpassing Traditional Voice and Messaging – The biggest concerns are in RA and risk areas – Knowledge & skills in all aspects of all new data services must be quickly improved and enhanced – Operators are relaying on vendors – For domain expertise & experience for assistance – For adding value – For reducing risk coverage gaps
  • 13. 13 LTE Challenges  New Pricing Models – Do we measure usage correctly? – Are we applying & charging according to the appropriate policy?  Complexity Challenges (mix of 2G, 3G and 4G) – Data is stored in many different locations (such as HLR and HSS) – Non-uniform network technology coverage - devices need to select and “jump”  between  technologies…    Rollout Challenges – Integrity of porting data to new network elements – Understanding and collecting data from new elements
  • 14. 14 Who Moved My Cheese?!  CSPs needs to update RA priorities according to changing business models – New Consumption Patterns – New Services – New Products – New Pricing Models – New Charging Policies
  • 15. 15 Use Case Example – LTE Scenario  High risk is detected in MM Risk for LTE LOB  Out-of-bundle in specific data package is identified by MoneyMap  Low margins are detected by the Margin Analysis Module  Service abuse and fraudulent activities are identified by FraudView  Centralized business & financial insights on LTE service – Monetary losses (LTE) from all products – Recommendations and future plans for risk reduction – Profitability insights of LTE for different segmentations
