Monetize anything at any scale with a converged charging system (CCS) integrated with billing and TM Forum Open APIs. Ensure accurate revenue accountability for any service, experience, and business model across 2G to 5G mobile or fixed networks at all stages of the revenue lifecycle.
Oracle scales up converged charging to serve 100 million subscribers.
Techco CSPs are using Oracle Cloud Scale Charging and Billing to monetize and scale new services and business models. Learn more about the cloud native business support system’s key capabilities.
Consolidate, protect, and grow revenue with a single offline and online charging system. Oracle’s CCS is compatible with any fixed or 2G to 5G mobile network for any service, payment type, and business model and is aligned with 3GPP converged charging standards.
Move beyond connectivity with pricing models that incorporate any unit or attribute combined with new 5G pricing levers in any account structure. Enhance customer experience (CX) with advanced data session charging that uses flexible quota allocation.
Powered by industry-leading in-memory data grid technology, charging is accurately processed with low latency and complete transactional consistency regardless of pricing or account model complexity.
If there’s a node, machine, or site failure, avoid disruption to business continuity. Federate the charging grid across a distributed multisite deployment without dropping sessions or losing revenue or data.
Support new services and business models, including subscription billing, white label billing, and billing-on-behalf-of models. Oracle’s solution provides flexible contract management to handle the complexities of revenue recognition.
Ensure customer satisfaction with an accurate billing experience. Oracle’s business support system includes comprehensive management of payments, collections, invoicing, account receivables, taxation, general ledger integration, and reporting.
This central, unified solution for B2C, B2B, and B2B2X models enables CSPs to easily launch offers, including flexible group account plans, billing-time discounting, adjustments, and recurring, usage, and purchase charges.
Monetize any revenue stream while ensuring accurate accountability at every stage of the revenue lifecycle. Oracle’s solution supports partner settlements for B2B2X and new partner-led business models.
Create centralized price plans for charging and billing components, and achieve faster time to market with lower costs.
Alleviate duplicate data, complex provisioning, and the potential for issues across otherwise decoupled charging and billing systems. Open APIs don’t require customization.
Easily and rapidly create complex charging and billing structures. Eliminate the need to create identical structures across otherwise decoupled charging and billing systems.
Accelerate time to cash with accurate revenue accountability, and rapidly explore new business models—from network authorization to charging and billing across B2C, B2B, and B2B2X offerings.
Cloud Scale Charging and Billing delivers a productized platform aligned with Open Digital Architecture (ODA) that allows IT, network, and business units to work closely together. Low-code configuration and pricing tools for nontechnical business specialists enable rapid innovation.
An Open API approach facilitates ease of integration with a modern digital experience and increasingly complex value chains while offsetting any risk of vendor lock-in.
TM Forum certified pricing design enables business users to rapidly configure new offers using intuitive, web-based navigation workflows. Productized capabilities further support rapid experimentation with new monetization services.
Simplify operations and preserve investment in an existing TMF 620 product catalog with an integration framework that can accept state change notifications and provide data model translation.
Deploy in a containerized and orchestrated environment to harness cloud infrastructure and DevOps CI/CD tooling. Accelerate innovation, operate more efficiently, and scale as business needs grow.
Cloud Scale Charging and Billing enables simplified operations and a real-time operational view. The entire solution uses a Kafka notification framework, Prometheus for metrics collection, Grafana for systemwide data dashboards, and the Elasticsearch, Fluentd, and Kibana stack for logging.
Comprehensive multiple-site deployment options are engineered to meet disaster recovery and business continuity needs. Deploy on private clouds behind a firewall or public cloud infrastructure.
Cloud native performance tests demonstrate low latency, high transaction throughput, and efficient resource utilization while supporting linear scalability.
To demonstrate the power of Oracle’s in-memory charging grid with multisite deployment, traffic was distributed and charging updates federated across two data center cloud regions. Performance results measured more than 270,000 transactions per second across the two sites, with single-digit millisecond latency.

Identifying viable business models and creating meaningful revenue streams is still top of mind for most CSPs when it comes to 5G. Without an apparent “killer use” for 5G, you must be prepared to create fast and often until you figure out what works best. Quickly launching new services—especially in new industry verticals—is a tall task to accomplish single-handedly. Here is where expanding your partner ecosystem provides an opportunity to get the most out of B2B2X as you begin to monetize 5G.Read the complete post
