SATbill Coverage

SATbill handles a wide spectrum of satellite services from most of the world’s satellite communications providers using a multitude of CDR formats. It allows you to combine all the services in a single invoice for each customer. New capabilities are added to SATbill as new call types are introduced.

How it works

We develop new CDR loaders for Customers who adopt new services from existing or new satellite communications providers. Once the CDR loader is implemented, the SATbill system processes the CDR files, calculates the cost of each call type and generates the required margins whilst remaining competitive. Find out more about the benefits in SATbill Value or more about its capabilities in SATbill Features.

Coverage

SATbill’s coverage is comprehensive, as it handles time, data (GB, MB, KB) and event-based calls, including packet and 256-bit Inmarsat C data. It supports D91-style, TAP II, tab delimited, CSV-based and customer-specific CDR formats from over 30 different providers across the world, such as Iridium, Thuraya, Inmarsat, GlobalStar and more.
