Rhino is used to provide programmatic IT access to the telecoms network.  Modern IT systems typically use web services and the SOAP protocol to exchange structured information, whereas telecom network elements utilise more specialised binary protocols which are less easy to use.  As much or as little of the low-level telecom protocols can be exposed through a SOAP Gateway as is required.

MNOs using Rhino have implemented SOAP Gateways for:

  • Call and message control and delivery
  • Read/write access to the HLR/HSS data using MAP and ISC
  • Provisioning of subscriber service data into databases or profiles tables for Rhino-hosted services
  • Provisioning of subscriber preference data into databases or profiles tables for Rhino-hosted services
  • Reading current subscriber location data
