Openet, a leader in the supply of Digital BSS, announced the availability of the Openet Evolved Charging Suite (ECS) for 5G.
As well as being cloud-native and 5G-compliant, the design of the Openet ECS enables operators to have unprecedented levels of agility to respond to market opportunities.
The Openet ECS is built for 5G; it provides 5G CHF (Charging Function) and CCS (Convergent Charging System) capability and is designed to support existing 2/3/4G mobility, fixed services along with new 5G services. The solution is cloud-native, containerised, based on a Service-Based Architecture (SBA) and utilises service mesh technologies for rapid network integration, scalability and resilience. Leveraging open source components, such as Docker and Kubernetes, and using Digital APIs to ensure ease of integration, the Openet ECS can dramatically reduce OpEx, typically associated with traditional legacy charging systems, said Openet.
Openet supports various deployment models. From full intelligent network (IN) replacement, adjunct charging capability, and fully integrated Policy and Charging (PCC) replacement, all the way to DevOps-based co-development with operators using Openet’s library of microservices.
