In a nutshell, 5G is the fifth generation technology standard upon which broadband cellular networks operate. It is fast, reliable, and has more data capacity than the previous generations of cellular technology. It began rolling out worldwide in 2019. Providing 5G to your customer base is a fantastic way to increase revenue.Continue reading
MVNE, or Mobile Virtual Network Enablers is a business entity that provides network infrastructure and business services to MVNOs, or Mobile Virtual Network Operators. This unburdens the MVNO from most business and support functions, while allowing them to offer services to customers with their own brands.Continue reading
OCS system is permitting an MVNA and a communications service provider to charge their customers, in real time, based on service usage. The OCS helps enhance the system by dividing business activities and decreasing technical and trader reliance and decreasing the favor for new services.Continue reading
Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) is an important part of the telecom domain. It fulfills the requirements of specific groups of customers who do not use the services from major operators in the area. For an MVNO, it takes a long time to establish trust amongst customers. Then comes the stage when it starts earning money. But due to inaccurate and inefficient billing and charging, the monetary success can be hampered. So, it is important for MVNOs to not use mediocre and rudimentary billing mechanisms. Instead, they need to utilize a convergent charging system for greater billing accuracy and revenue assurance.Continue reading
5G is a transformational technology with immense potential. For telecom operators, it presents a very good chance to grow their customer base. Features like network slicing, ultra-low latency and massive bandwidths are extremely attractive to customers. Whether it is your business customers or home subscribers, you will be faced with unprecedented challenges while deploying 5G. Billing and charging need to be spot-on and you can’t make any errors in calculating charges.Continue reading
5G network slicing is potentially the greatest innovation in the telecom industry. It provides unforeseen opportunities and can be the instigator of new business models. Connectivity is a vital asset for every business use case that is powered by technology. 5G network slicing allows for the creation of several logical networks over a single physical network. Each logical network can have its own unique characteristics such as speed, latency, security etc. The QoS-based network slicing provides unprecedented power to companies, especially those that are ready to be creative and use separate networks for supporting their different requirements. From a telecom operator’s point of view, this new technology presents a tough but rewarding challenge. Although a convergent charging system can definitely make things simpler.
Telecom billing has a very important role to play in driving the success of modern-day telecom operators. Due to Covid-19, businesses are experiencing stagnation. So, if you want to stay competitive and increase your customer base, it is the right time to improve your service model. With a convergent charging platform, it is easier to digitalize services and monetize assets. Especially if you can find a proven platform that is secure, flexible and completely scalable.Continue reading
Billing and charging are two of the most vital functions for MNOs, MVNOs and MVNE. While the bigger companies have vast resources to implement billing and charging system as per their specific requirements, the smaller companies struggle to keep up with them. Nowadays, the pressure is intense when it comes to the competition between different telecom companies. If you are not supporting your customers on time, and not providing them the required support, you are likely to lose ground.
The MVNO model has been in prevalence for more than one decade. It has been relatively successful in the developed world, which can be gauged by looking at the projected Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of over 9% between 2017 and 2022. Of late, the technology powering MVNOs in the developed world is reaching developing countries such as Thailand, India and Philippines. As a result, we are expected to see a striking change in the fortunes of MVNO in the developing countries. One of the most coveted MVNO technologies pertains to convergent billing, which is implemented by a centralized real-time charging system like Online Charging System (OCS).Continue reading
