Oracle Communications' cloud-native converged charging and billing solutions are on their way to Malaysia, Thailand and Pakistan, says the company.
This follows a deal with Telenor to support the telecommunications provider's mobile and next generation 5G services across Asia.
As Oracle points out, mobile services, from voice to video streaming, are on the rise across Asia. To support this growth, Telenor has selected Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management, including Oracle Converged Charging, to lay the groundwork for 5G and provide seamless charging and billing interactions for its 175 million subscribers in the region. This can range from an ongoing monthly subscription to a video on-demand service to mobile banking payments to large-scale prepaid voice and data services.
Oracle Communications Consulting is leading the implementation and will deploy the solution in Malaysia, Thailand and Pakistan.
Oracle says its fully integrated, cloud-native digital billing and charging solution gives Telenor proven monetization and real-time rating capabilities to support any payment model (prepaid, postpaid or hybrid) and any business model, including business-to-business or business-to-consumer account structures.
Oracle adds that, by selecting billing and charging from a single provider, Telenor will benefit from quicker implementation and streamlined processes to create new offers and provision customers and groups without needing to manage the risk of out-of-sync revenue systems.
Oracle's cloud-native converged charging solution has been validated in performance testing on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The company says that it scales to very high subscriber volumes with low millisecond latency, near-linear scalability, and efficient resource utilization, all with real-world prepaid and postpaid charging scenarios.
