Adax chosen for its proven product quality, reliability and support

Reading, UK, 5 April 2004: Adax has announced that its ACT4-PCI board is being used by Turkish vendor Oksijen as part of its Welcome Roaming Message System (WRMS) for wireless networks. The high density communications controller provides a high performance, cost-effective interface for the WRMS which automatically sends configurable SMS welcome messages to international roamers on the network. This encourages users to stay on the network and use the available services, therefore generating more revenue. Adax was chosen for its proven product quality, reliability and technical/customer support which enabled the application to be developed quickly and easily. The ACT4-PCI board is a high density channelised four port card that provides up to 128 individual HDLC links. An 8 port cPCI version is also available with 256 links. It is specifically designed for Base Station Control, Billing Mediation and traffic monitoring applications and can handle multiple protocols including X.25, Frame Relay, LAPB, LAPD, HDLC and LAPV5. In the Oksijen WRMS the ACT board provides the interface to the network, allowing the user’s caller ID to be passed to the WRMS application. The system takes advantage of the time stamping and FISU (Fill in Signal Unit) filtering capabilities that the board offers to provide the specific data that the application needs.

The WRMS can identify incoming roaming subscribers and their home network, send them a customised SMS based on their home network, what time it is, etc., and also identify outgoing roamers and send them another SMS. The SMS can be a welcome message that either simply informs the roamer of the network they are using or promotes the roaming services available and how to use them. This helps prevent roamers from switching to a competitors’ network and encourages them to use the available services more often.

“We needed a reliable product with a proven track-record to implement our Welcome Roaming Message System onto the network,” said Ergun Seray, Sales and Marketing Manager at Oksijen. “The Adax controller provided this together with product support and comprehensive documentation that enabled us to develop the system quickly and easily.”
