Charge for anything at any scale with a converged charging system (CCS) powered by an in-memory grid. Ensure efficient online and offline charging of any fixed or mobile network, service, experience, metric, or attribute. Align with TM Forum Open Digital Architecture (ODA) and Open APIs, and continue to interoperate with existing billing systems with an optional cap and grow evolution strategy.
Oracle scales up converged charging to serve 100 million subscribers.
Techco CSPs are using Oracle Cloud Scale Charging. Learn more about the solution’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 utilizes flexible quota allocation.
Powered by industry-leading in-memory data grid technology, low latency charging is accurately processed with 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.
Perform online charging with real-time usage notifications and wallet queries for all payment types. Increase ROI from existing billing systems by sending prerated call detail records (CDRs) for postpaid bill production.
Rated events processed by the charging grid are cached in memory, written to persistent storage for high-availability purposes, and transformed into CDR files for downstream billing consumption.
Keep third-party billing for existing offerings, and supplement Cloud Scale Charging with Oracle Communications Cloud Scale Billing for 5G, B2B, or B2B2X offerings, with the option to migrate subscribers when activating a 5G plan and phase out legacy systems over time.
Cloud Scale Charging delivers a productized platform aligned with 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 provides data model support.
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 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.
As part of a cloud native deployment on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and using industry-realistic charging scenarios, Oracle Cloud Scale Charging achieved single-digit millisecond latency, high transaction throughput, efficient resource utilization, and near-linear scalability.
“We needed to transform our online charging capabilities while consolidating legacy systems and cutting costs. Oracle’s converged charging system provides us with critical, rapid monetization of innovative prepaid commercial offers and an evolutionary path to meet future requirements. These business priorities include monetizing 5G, supporting online charging of postpaid subscribers, and harnessing the benefits of cloud with the option of full cloud native deployment.”
