Motorola Offers Push-to-Talk Over Cellular Service for Pre-paid

Motorola introduced a Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (PoC) Prepaid Mediation service that enables wireless operators to extend PoC services to prepaid customers in parallel with their postpaid subscribers.

The solution works with the Motorola Global Application Management Architecture (GAMA) and virtually any billing system. It enables swift authentication and debiting of the customer account without a delay in call set-up and can support various types of PoC Prepaid billing scenarios that require a more customized approach to rating, such as pay per minute, pay per session or unlimited calling. GAMA also provides the service providers with a common service delivery and content management architecture that simplifies and accelerates the creation, deployment and management of end-user applications and services.

Motorola said its mediation solution can be extended to support other applications' prepaid billing needs by integrating with operators' network services enablers such as messaging, location-based services, video streaming and email solutions.
