Struggling to keep and increase their market share and ARPU carriers ceaselessly offer new attractive services. However, these services are often difficult to market, and the handset configuration required for adequate interaction with telco’s equipment is one of the challenges. Besides, the majority of subscribers, except for the most young and tech-savvy are unwilling to go into configuration details, complicated parameters and figures.
CBOSSota addresses this challenge by automatically uploading the required settings to subscribers’ handsets. Using this system, subscribers can order service settings, confirm the download and enjoy new opportunities.
Subscribers can get the settings either filling in an order form on the telco’s website, or sending an SMS to the dedicated number. Using a web form, a subscriber specifies the service type (WAP, GPRS, e-mail, etc.), the handset model and the phone number. An SMS can be sent in a free form to the dedicated number of the corresponding service. CBOSSota processes the request and sends back the required configurations and instructions for their activation. As a rule, it is enough to confirm the download and select a required profile. CBOSSota supports all handsets compatible with basic standards such as Nokia/Ericsson. Over the Air Settings Specification or OMA Client Provisioning.
