Enable mobile calling at the expense of the called parties and launch new reverse charging services.
Enable mobile calling at the expense of the called parties and launch new reverse charging services. A Collect Call service allows the calling party to place a call at the expense of the called party. Prior to connection the Called party is asked for approval. In the past, collect calls were operator-assisted, later on available via toll free number and now adapted for mobile networks.
A new mobile revenue opportunity
Mobile Collect calling fits the needs of different market segments and has use cases allowing new revenue generation:
- Community, family and kids calling
- Enterprise and Business calling
- Prepaid subscribers with low balance can continue calling and generate revenue
- Other cases of reverse and third-party call charging.
Flexible reverse billing and cost-sharing capabilities
Opencode provides various reverse billing options adapted to today’s marketing needs. Full call charging to the Called party, sharing the cost of call among the parties, or billing to third parties are supported.
Roamer Collect Calling and forward looking to new opportunities
Connected to the switching and billing core network infrastructure, Opencode’s solution achieves other reverse charging revenues open by the Collect Call service. By introducing a new Roaming Collect Call service, roamers can receive calls at the expense of the Calling party.

- Service invocation by prefix, callback and automatic
