The Call Data Records (CDR’s) from the Satellite Networks are uploaded and allocated to the relevant Clients according to the communication usage. An Invoice is generated monthly for each of the clients usage and posted to the accounting system. A comprehensive pricing structure is available for International Call Rates (Peak, Off-Peak) as well as Customer Special Rates.
