Billing for GSM-R

Customer Care, Billing and Provisioning System for GSM-R

GSM-R is a mobile communication platform that meets all the varied needs of railway operators. It is a proven and complete solution for cost-effective wireless railway communication. In addition to standard requirements, GSM-R also addresses the special requirements of rail operators by means of innovative functions, such as cell-specific routing, functional addressing, and advanced speech call items.

The Siemens Convergence Creators' Billing for GSM-R solution enables GSM-R providers to flexibly bill and rate the entire communication within their networks and also facilitates smooth integration of multiple network elements.

The moment the network is ready trains can start moving and operations may begin.
During operations it is of paramount importance to manage the cab radio stocks and instantaneous service activation to ensure the safety and high performance of train journeys. Delay in service activation and unavailability of stock will not only affect train schedules but will also cause inconvenience to commuters. Therefore, a billing system deployed right from the beginning ensures operational precision and efficiency.

Siemens’ innovative Billing for GSM-R solution GABS (General Administration and Billing System) offers service providers a highly-advanced single-interface billing and reconciliation solution for effective service management.
