Telecom Revenue Verification System (TRVS)

Telecom revenue-auditing platform for governments and relevant agencies

The TVRS provides objective and comprehensive information on the revenue generated by the whole spectrum of telecom services on an ongoing basis, accounting for all revenue-generating events and transactions that flow through the systems of the operators. The TRVS enables the authorities to accurately and independently verify the revenue of each operator in connection with prepaid and postpaid voice, SMS/MMS, data and roaming services and bundles. It also monitors the evolution of the telecom market in a given country and continuously provides updated data to better inform the decision and policy-making processes related to this market. Its mere implementation represents, in itself, a strong incentive for transparency and compliance throughout the industry.
