Higher data speeds, accelerating smartphone penetration and an expanding universe of applications are transforming the mobile communication landscape. As service providers explore opportunities for new value propositions and business models, the importance of real-time charging and policy as an enabler for customer intimacy and innovation is growing. Contemporary real-time platforms developed in the 1990s for the simpler demands of voice are proving severely limited in supporting the extreme performance and complexity demands of connectionless mobile data applications. Service Providers have been locked into technology that is based on Online Transaction Processing principles developed 40 years ago. They are consequently forced into deep and unpredictable trade-offs between flexibility, scalability and affordability - limiting their ability to innovate and forge new business models. The time has come to re-invent BSS and unlock the value of CSP core assets.

This webinar will:

  • Explore the growing value of real-time for mobile broadband
  • Explain why limitations with existing real-time BSS cannot be solved through scaling or optimization
  • Introduce Parallel-MATRIXX technology, a completely new approach to real-time BSS offering 100x or greater performance improvements even for the most complex services and business models
