How can service providers best monetize 5G and cohesively manage what has gone before?

A flexible, future-proof, 5G-native charging solution is key to addressing the huge monetization potential of advanced standalone 5G and beyond.

Historically, communications service providers (CSPs) have maintained many BSS platforms, supporting different lines of business with dated requirements. This limits their evolution, creating siloed environments for post-paid and pre-paid, fixed and mobile, 3G/4G and 5G, and more. In the 5G and cloud-native era, such silos are becoming unsustainable, and a new paradigm is required.

Amdocs Charging addresses these challenges, bringing together Amdocs charging capabilities with those from Openet (acquired in 2020) to provide a “better than both” Amdocs Charging – built to ensure rapidly evolving expectations for 5G and beyond are met and exceeded.

Join us for our webinar that covers:

  • Why and how Amdocs combined its charging assets with Openet
  • How 5G creates a significantly new role for charging
  • Requirements for proactive charging and monetization success
  • Charging as a focal point for rapid service launches and early 5G success
  • 5G charging priorities – hot use cases

Key topics include: Traditional operations and the challenges introduced by next-generation networks
  • The criticality of intent-driven operations and how to get there
  • Lessons learned from end-to-end orchestration and assurance use cases
  • The ongoing journey towards autonomous operation

    Jim leads Heavy Reading's research on the service assurance and security impact of the virtualized cloud on the control plane and application layers, both in the fixed and mobile core and at the enterprise edge. Jim focuses on the security impacts that cloud-based technologies such as 5G introduce from a cyber-threat detection perspective, as well as billing and service assurance transformation implications. Jim joined Heavy Reading from Nortel Networks, where he tracked the VoIP and application server market landscape and was a key contributor to the development of Wireless Intelligent Network (WIN) standards. Additional technical experience was gained with Bell Canada, where he performed IN and SS7 network planning, numbering administration, technical model forecast creation and definition of regulatory-based interconnection models. Jim is based in Ottawa, Canada.
