Ericsson (News - Alert) has achieved a new milestone, deploying its charging and billing solutions for two billion users worldwide.
Per Borgklint, head of Ericsson's Business Unit Support Solutions, said the two billion subscriptions served by their company’s charging and billing solutions is a tremendous accomplishment that further reinforces their No. 1 market-leadership position in telecom operations and business support systems (OSS/BSS).
“Reaching this milestone also reflects the success of our operator customers, and we look forward to supporting them with innovative convergent solutions that drive greater operational efficiency and deliver an optimal user experience," he added.
Ericsson says its charging and billing solutions comprise an ideal solution for communication service providers (CSP (News - Alert)) to manage their customers, partners and services in a streamlined, convergent process, covering prepaid and postpaid, voice and data, fixed and mobile, retail and wholesale in real time.
An end-to-end, real-time billing and revenue management environment for handling customers, the Charging & Billing system covers all subscribers and all services, including the full range of customer, product and order management, real-time rating, discount and promotion handling, balance management, billing, finance and partner settlements.
It offers flexibility that allows staff to quickly set different tariffs for different customers and partners as well.
Larry Goldman, partner and head of Telecoms Software Research, Analysys Mason, said, "Ericsson is well recognized for expanding its portfolio with the addition of Telcordia (News - Alert) and ConceptWave, which sets them on track toward the position of being the No. 1 operations and business support systems provider. The company is well positioned with the right mix of OSS/BSS assurance, fulfillment and billing products and corresponding support, consulting and systems integration services to further expand on its No. 1 market-share ranking."
