Amdocs has announced a 5G-ready online charging system that enables service providers to process traffic from multiple network slices in a single platform.

The new platform also enables deployment in the cloud with the OpenStack cloud framework and is in accordance with the 5G standards guidelines1 published by 3GPPTM in December 2017.

Network slicing is a key capability in 5G networks, as it allows service providers to run multiple logical networks that meet the varying performance needs of different services – from eHealth and autonomous vehicles, which demand the lowest possible latency, to less-critical but bandwidth-demanding virtual and augmented reality applications.

The latest release of Amdocs’ digital monetization suite provides a centralized charging entity for the monetization of all service configurations made possible by network slicing. It includes an innovative isolation mechanism that ensures the level of activity in one network slice does not impact another.

As such, we have developed the latest version of our Digital Monetization suite to help them monetize the advanced product configurations that network slicing enables. It will also help them ensure that a customer connected to a 24/7 vital eHealth service, delivered over one network slice, is not impacted by an overload of events from another network slice streaming a live football match.
