Inter-carrier revenue leakage boosts costs

Service providers and operators can generate between 3% and 11% in savings if they address the issue of inter-carrier revenue leakage.
In a recent study, Stratecast says that in the wholesale market, inter-carrier revenue leakage represents around 3% to 5% of a service provider’s total costs for traditional voice products and 7% to 11% for broadband offerings.
Frequent inventory updates and contract discrepancies are key areas of concern, with the resolution of these issues often too time-consuming and manual in nature, even for traditional services.
Potential cost savings can be generated with the use of tools that can automate the process of data gathering, aggregation, and comparison, as these provide network operators and service providers with full visibility into cash flow.
