Joint Solution Enables Mobile Operators to Increase Revenue By Delivering Personalized Data Services for Prepaid and Postpaid Subscribers across 2.5G/3G Networks
XACCT Technologies, the leading network data management platform for global communications service providers, and Megisto Systems, a leading developer of carrier-class Mobile Internet infrastructure equipment, today announced a joint solution that delivers real-time service-aware charging for prepaid and postpaid mobile data subscribers. The solution integrates XACCT’s real-time measurement, transaction processing and differential charging capabilities with Megisto’s subscriber- and service-aware core, Mobile Subscriber Service™ architecture. By combining highly complementary technologies from XACCT and Megisto, the integrated solution gives mobile operators a competitive edge to deliver, charge and manage transport of highly personalized data services. Mobile operators will now be able to fully realize the revenue potential of both enterprise services, such as secure intranet access, as well as personalized services including m-commerce, gaming, content filtering, even when delivered by partners.
The joint solution provides a highly scalable and flexible infrastructure platform for mobile operators to understand the network usage and charge for the services immediately across both prepaid and postpaid environments. The solution also eliminates potential revenue leakage of mobile data services by offering real-time usage metering, charging, provisioning and transaction processing. Furthermore, the integrated solution uniquely addresses the challenge of charging for prepaid subscribers who are roaming outside their home network.
“The prepaid model for wireless voice has been popular in Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America for years, and the model’s adoption rate is also rapidly growing in the U.S.,” said Anil Uberoi, Senior Vice President of Marketing of XACCT Technologies. “As more 2.5G/3G data services are rolled out, mobile operators need to be proactive in implementing flexible charging models users demand. Megisto’s Mobile Subscriber Service™ architecture provides key network infrastructure for delivering personalized mobile data services.”
“XACCT’s market-leading N2B Platform and Megisto’s Mobile Subscriber Service™ architecture share the common goal of making mobile data services profitable,” said Carol Politi, Vice President of Marketing of Megisto Systems. “Our solution enables Megisto to integrate with more than 50 billing and business applications that are part of the XACCTready Alliance program - Network Infrastructure Systems, OSS/BSS applications and value add partners.”
