The MATRIXX Charging Engine has been deployed by European CSP (News - Alert) Swisscom for real-time rating, charging and balance management for its prepaid and postpaid mobile subscribers.
Swisscom is reportedly in the process of leveraging the advantages of new mobile broadband services and LTE (News - Alert) implementations, and wanted an Online Charging System (OCS) for managing exponential growth in session authorizations created by smartphone apps and LTE signaling in a cost-effective manner.
After thorough performance, network grade reliability and functionality testing, the MATRIXX Charging Engine was selected for that purpose.
Until now, it is said that deploying anything in real time other than pre-paid voice services was costly. But MATRIXX claimed that its technology can deliver 100 times the performance of existing real-time technology, making it a cost-effective option for all subscribers.
“MATRIXX Software’s Parallel-MATRIXX technology is the core innovation that differentiates its products,” said Bram Van der Zwet, head of BSS/OSS Architecture at Swisscom (News - Alert). “After extensive testing, it clearly demonstrated a breakthrough in the technology required to enable CSPs to deploy Online Charging as a ubiquitous solution. As we roll out LTE, MATRIXX Software has an unparalleled solution that can deliver the real-time charging capabilities we need, including support for large enterprise customers and sophisticated post-paid pricing plans.”
The MATRIXX Charging Engine supposedly provides communications service providers (CSP) like Swisscom with a future-proof, real-time solution that one can deploy in a cost-effective way for all services, across all subscribers.
MATRIXX Software is proud to have been selected by Swisscom, an operator who recognizes the need for new technology to move the industry forward and solve critical CSP challenges.
Recently, MATRIXX Software demonstrated new architecture for efficient mobile broadband data traffic management, and Swisscom and Ericsson (News - Alert)-sponsored M2M Challenge sought game changing apps.
