Primal Skynet

Primal Skynet is one of several new offerings from Primal Technologies specifically introduced to provide the operator with Web-based Subscriber Provisioning and Customer Relationship Management. Primal Skynet allows authorized Customer Service Representatives the capability to manage the lifecycle of subscribers including the ability to add/delete subscribers and to view/modify any subscriber features that are included in Advance Pay/Prepaid, OCS, SMSC, MMS, and Unified Visual Voice Mail services.

With Primal Skynet, subscribers can also be added to new monthly or "add-on" packages easily, while Promotions can also be defined and scheduled. Primal Skynet also supports the Equipment Identity Registry (EIR) screens to allow operators to blacklist lost/stolen handsets easily.

As part of he subscriber lifecycle management, other network elements can also be provisioned (e.g. HLR, PCRF, etc.) as required.

Smart Phone Access to Visual Voice Mail

Wireless operators recognize that the ability to offer the most popular smart phone models is the cornerstone of a successful strategy. Primal Technologies allows wireless operators to continue to leverage this strategy with the ability to offer iPhone and Android Visual Voice Mail to their subscribers with complete provisioning control to either bundle the Visual Voice Mail feature into an existing services bundle, or offer it as an "add-on" feature.

Primal Technologies includes a Visual Voice Mail client for Android phones, or alternatively supports the native Apple iPhone client. In this way, the subscriber can more intuitively retrieve, listen, and manage their voice messages from their Visual Voice Mail client. The Primal Android Visual Voice Mail client can also be further customized for branding purposes. For wireless operators with other Primal VAS, the Android client also allows subscribers the convenience to further engage with these services at the wireless operator's discretion (e.g. display the converged balance, buckets, expiration date, and rate plan).

Since Primal Technologies also supports voice mail for cable and landline operators, these same operators can use the Primal Android client to allow their subscribers to view and manage their voice messages, and fax messages alike.

Primal Technologies on The Cloud

With the Primal Cloud, the telecom service provider simply connects their MSC, HLR or Soft Switch to the Primal Open Services Platform (OSP) via IP. SMS, MMS, Voice Mail, EIR, and IN Prepaid are now managed from the Primal Skynet GUI to easily and effectively support their subscirbers.

Primal Cloud CPU, memory and database resources are allocated seamlessly to the network based on subscriber and call usage with on-demand delivery of IT resources. Protocols supported by the Primal Technologies Cloud include RTP, SIP, DIAMETER, MAP, SMPP, HTTP XML, IS826, and CAMEL.
