Real-time charging solution

Real-time charging for real-life situations

rtBilling is a globally proven real-time OCS solution that helps operators achieve their business operation targets. rtBilling rates, controls and manages all communications traffic in true real time, regardless of the number of operators, service providers, mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) or digital virtual network providers (DVNOs) being hosted.

In a single system, rtBilling provides real-time processing of voice calls,
SMS&MMS, data and content. With flexible rating rules, rtBilling enables highly competitive targeted offers and innovative promotions, thus helping the operator to generate more revenue from the current customer base. Moreover, by providing convergent pre- and post-paid billing, rtBilling closes the gap between different subscription types: the solution allows anything from purely pre- or post-paid accounts to hybrid accounts, including bundled service offerings.

With the highly scalable rtBilling solution on HPE NonStop platforms, service providers are able to efficiently meet the growing demands of subscribers and next generation mobile networks. For operational flexibility, operator can deploy rtBilling also as a virtualized X86-based solution in operator private cloud.

The product combines a wide range of CBOSS software features and the HPE NonStop platform features to provide disaster-proof architecture using active/active configuration. This ensures full data backup and enables geographic distribution of the main nodes. At the same time the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) of the entire system is ensured. Furthermore, fast response times and zero downtime reliability are the best guarantees for minimising the mobile operator’s business risks.
