WIRELESS MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES COURSE SYNOPSIS
Selecting Rate Plans
Comprehensive Considerations:
o Peak toll usage
o Off-peak toll usage
o Mobile-to-mobile usage
o Push-to-talk / direct connect
Coverage
o Regional / nationwide
o Mobile-to-mobile
Individual Plan Considerations:
o Minimize the overall number of plans per Wireless Telecom Service Provider
o 1 to 3 plans allows for simplified management
o The fewer the number of plans, the greater the challenge to optimize overall cost
Pooled Plan Considerations:
o Pooled minutes across the organization can minimize the cost of paying for additional / overage
minutes
o Plans with a large number of users are often over-stocked with minutes
o The larger the pool of minutes, the greater the challenge to optimize overall cost

Managing Rate Plans
Optimal NET Cost Per Minute (CPM)
o Defined: the best possible CPM for a specific service plan based on usage. The CPM is derived by
dividing the monthly recurring plan cost by the number of toll minutes included in the wireless plan.
o Example: a plan that costs $79.95 per month and includes 700 toll minutes has an optimal NET
CPM of $0.1142.
o Using this calculation as a benchmark for defining overall optimal cost allows for trending of service
plans that are overused and underused
o This calculation allows for uniform comparison between multiple Wireless Telecom Service
Providers and service plans
