The world of digital and the rise of 5G create new opportunities for operators to expand into new business value chains. Consequently, operators need agile monetization systems that reflect a new portfolio of services, business models and a new approach to consumer payments and value. All of this plus ensuring they meet the technology requirements of 5G and cloud-native IT, while also lowering TCO and performing at scale.

Implementing charging systems as a fully cloud-native solution leverages the full benefits of the cloud, such as agility, elasticity and cost optimization. Furthermore, utilizing a distributed edge architecture to deploy charging functions closer to the end devices will serve to reduce HW and signaling footprint, which are expected to increase dramatically with the surge of connected devices over the 5G network.

In this webinar, Amdocs and AWS will present their approaches to bringing cloud and edge into the operator’s monetization domain, through Amdocs’ RevenueONE, AWS’ public cloud and AWS’ Outposts.

Join this webinar to learn:

  • The advantages of a decentralized architecture for 5G charging
  • Different use cases of charging functions running on the public cloud and its edge extensions
  • How AWS Outposts can complement your hybrid cloud infrastructure
