With the RoamsysNext Data Capturing Service your network node database will be more complete than ever before!

Our Network Configuration Optimizer fetches RAEX IR.21 and RAEX IR.85 documents in real-time, which gives you the possibility to speed up all configuration processes and focus only on the tasks that you need to do. This is great, but not all roaming partners are RAEX compliant and for sure you receive a lot of documents via email or other sources.

This is where the Data Capturing Service comes into place. You can submit documents that are missing in your database to the RoamsysNext data capturing team and they will take care of it. The system allows you to get live information on the status of your submitted documents, making the whole process way more transparent. In addition, you are able to comfortably submit multiple documents at once, which will fasten up your documents submission.

There are two ways to submit documents for capturing. One is ideal for submitting one or few documents, one is perfect for submitting multiple docs. Here’s how it works and which way you should ideally use for which case.

Content:

  • Document upload
  • Email collector
  • Email collector administration
  • Notes and limitations
  • Data capturing status

Document upload:

If you only have a few IR.21 and IR.85 documents that need data capturing, the easiest way is to submit them via the normal upload in Documents.

  1. Log into Documents and visit the Upload page
  2. Click on Upload Document and fill in the missing metadata (document type, operator and date)
  3. Check the “Submit for data capturing” option and click on Import

Believe it or not: That’s all you need to do. After submitting the document via upload, you can just lay back, check the data capturing status (see below) once in a while and let us take care of the rest. How simple is that?

Email collector

If you have lots of documents that need data capturing, the easiest way to submit them is via the Email collector feature in Documents. Just send an email to your private email collector address (see email collector administration section for details) and attach all IR.21 and IR.85 documents you want us to capture.

To submit the documents for data capturing, please just follow these simple steps:

  1. Log into Documents and visit your email inbox page
  2. Fill in the missing metadata (document type, operator and date) for the IR.21 and IR.85 documents you want us to capture
  3. Check the checkboxes in front of the documents you want us to capture and click on the Import and submit for capturing button in the footer

Email collector administration

To edit your email collector address please visit the email collector administration. Check the “Enable email collector”-option and add the email address to your address book.

Please don’t share the email collector address with people outside of your company in order to avoid misuse. If you suspect the mail address has gotten into the wrong hands, you can easily change the address.

Notes and limitations

As with the manual upload, the supported document types for the email collector are PDF, DOC, DOCX, XLS and XLSX. You can also attach RAEX documents to your email, but you cannot submit them for capturing! ZIP files with any of the supported file types will be uncompressed and listed in the email inbox. Unsupported file types will be skipped and details are shown in the email inbox logfiles.

PRO tip: Even if you don’t want to use the Email collector to submit documents for data capturing, you can use it to bulk upload documents into the “Documents” application. Just click the “Import” button instead of the “Import and submit for capturing” button.

Data capturing status

The new data capturing status overview grants you the opportunity to monitor the capturing status in real time. The overview provides you with information on when the document was submitted, on its current capturing status and on the effort we have to put into the capturing process.

An additional feature is the data capturing status archive that will contain all documents that have been captured for you.

Please note that the archive is only available for documents that have been captured since 2019.
