Termination on TIM Mobile Network Termination on TIM Mobile Network

  • What costs are charged to Operators to start using the Termination on the TIM mobile network service?
  • The costs charged to Operators essentially consist of:

    • a “one-off” fee for configuring the interconnection;
    • fees and rental for access interfaces (ports) to switching nodes in the TIM mobile network (based on the traffic volumes that it intends to terminate, each Operator estimates the number of flows/ports, agreeing a specific equipment plan with TIM).
    • fees and rental for provision, if required, of 2 Mbps interconnect flows and of the co-location service. Once the interconnection has been created, the Operator must pay:
    • the cost per minute of traffic termination, based on the total time in minutes of the calls delivered to the TIM mobile network;
    • in the event of voice calls routed without placing a Routing Number before them (provided for by the “Direct routing” technical solution), the cost for each call is that of the Triggering service.

    The reference price lists containing the full list of prices are published in the TIM Reference Offer: Voice call termination on mobile network service (Market 7).

  • Which format should an Operator choose for forwarding calls if it wants to avoid paying for Triggering?
  • TIM does not carry out Triggering on calls forwarded in compliance with the "direct routing" technical solution; it is therefore sufficient that calls are forwarded to the TIM mobile network in compliance with what is set forth in the following resolutions:
    - 19/01/CIR (in particular, see art. 11),

    - 78/08/CIR (in particular, see art. 3),.

  • Are calls routed directly to the TIM mobile network, but not made to TIM users, rejected?
  • Yes, because the transit service is not offered on the TIM mobile network. If Operators need this service, calls must be forwarded to the TIM fixed telephony network.
