The liberalization of the telecommunications markets in Sub-Saharan Africa resulted in elevated pageant at the provision and pricing of conversation companies. yet, as a result loss of acceptable regulatory instruments, newly demonstrated regulators are poorly outfitted to arbitrate expanding interconnection disputes among competing operators. This guidebook and its linked CD-ROM, together with the associated fee version, have been ready to supply Sub-Saharan Africa regulators and operators with a legitimate regulatory device permitting the decision of actual interconnection bills, hence facilitating the payment of long and expensive interconnection disputes among mounted and cellular operators. the fee version belongs to the kin of 'Bottom-Up' types, which calculate interconnection price incurred via a good operator utilizing the longer term Incremental expense (LRIC) technique. The proposed rate version takes into consideration so much good points characterizing the improvement degree of telecommunications networks in Sub-Saharan Africa (small measurement of fastened community, value of rural telephony, over the top reliance on microwave know-how, explosive call for for cellular provider, and vulnerable regulatory capacity). 'A version for Calculating Interconnection bills in Telecommunications' deals telecom regulators and operators not just a call help software but additionally a stimulant to augment an realizing of the good judgment of regulating a region open to pageant.

In fact, this can only happen if the same assumptions are made for operation efficiency and depreciation. The proposed cost model belongs to the second category. The Model Structure The logical structure of the model is relatively simple: • The model begins by proposing a nomenclature of network elements (nodes and links). • Each service uses these elements in different proportions. On the basis of routing factors, the model calculates the total load supported in traffic minutes for each element.

The following diagram shows the entry points, depending on the nature of the interconnection service. International service as assumed in the model is routed via an international transit switch providing an entry point in the transit area covered. If the entry point is located in a different area, the cost of domestic transit has to be added. Interconnection services are offered to operators (fixed-line or mobile network operators) in order to collect or terminate their traffic from or to other competing operators.

The percentage of traffic at peak hour and other demand data critical to sizing the network elements. • The traffic growth as predicted by the industry. ” sheet to manage the two languages and the default values). The 12 sheets in the general model break down as follows: • Four sheets to gather the assumptions. • One sheet to calculate the traffic and sizing of the network elements. • Two other sheets to size the transmission and infrastructures. • Three sheets to calculate costs (switching, transmission, and infrastructures).
