SkyView Implementation

 Most of the work to implement the SkyView ASP Services will be performed by VeraTeq.   The customer is responsible for providing the following:

  1. A trunk inventory for each switch. If a current trunk inventory is not available, VeraTeq can create an inventory from the switch configuration reports. For an example an inventory for a Nortel DMS-100 switch can be derived from the following switch reports:   C7RTESET, C7TRKMEM, ISUPDEST, TRKNAME, and TRKSGRP.
  2. List of Rate Centers serviced by the customer's switches and associated Local Rate Centers.
  3. FTP connection to the SS7 Probe to pull the SS7 files up to the SkyView Server
  4. FTP connectivity to the server hosting the billing records. 

With receipt of the trunk inventory and rate center information VeraTeq can proceed with the following:

  • Initialize the SkyView Database
  • Load the Office and Trunk Inventory
  • Build the Local Area Calling reference table
  • Establish the SS7 and Billing data collection procedures
  • Certify the data load and reconciliation process
  • Provide End User Training
  • Monitor the daily receipt and processing of data

The SkyView ASP implementation can be completed within 30 days.

Other Services:

  • Custom Reports 
  • Revenue Assurance Administration
    • Review the monthly SkyView Reports
    • Propose Revenue Recovery Plans
    • Assist the CABS Manager in billing Phantom Traffic identified by SkyView
    • Assist in the review of existing and new Reciprocal Compensation Agreements
  • Negotiate Reciprocal Compensation Agreements

Migration from ASP to On-site

For customers that choose to implement SkyView on-site after initial subscribing to VeraTeq’s SkyView ASP services, migration can be performed seamlessly without a disruption in service or loss of data. After the on-site SkyView platform has been installed and certified both systems will continue to operate in parallel.   The detailed SS7 and billing records, along with the aggregated data, will be exported from the SkyView ASP server, shipped to the new location, and loaded into the on-site SkyView Server. When the customer has signed off on the on-site SkyView implementation and data migration, the data feeds to the SkyView ASP server will be turned down and the data removed from the server.
