What is ECS and its Vision?
Processes involved in service launches need to be seamless and easy and Openet understands that. Openet Evolved Charging Suite (ECS) serves as a key enabler of new services and monetisation whether driven by offers or user self-service. It is the single source of truth for ultra-flexible, next-generation, convergent service visualisation, testing, enablement, launch, discovery, value capture and review.
Importance of Charging In 5G:
With the emergence of 5G, ECS plays an even more enhanced role in an evolved 5G SBA. It has required a safe evolution to RESTful interfaces and enhanced capability as a greater number of offers become possible but involve an increased number of 5G functions. Openet has been evolving ECS with these much more powerful requirements in mind.
A More Optimal Evolution
Service evolutions have often resulted in unnecessary silos between voice and data, prepaid and postpaid, consumer and enterprise etc. Openet’s Offer Engine and front-end, service provider Offer Catalog are at the heart of a much more user-friendly, convergent, rapidly scalable, opex-reducing Evolved Charging.
Catalog, Offer Engine & Extreme Usability
Openet firmly believes online charging is the “beating heart of BSS” – the “offer engine” can be seen as a powerful priority for service providers. It can be both the pulse of the relationship with the end user and indicator as well as driver of the overall health of the business, especially when combined with analytics and AI.
Ultra-usability and control are at the heart of Openet’s ECS. Not only has Openet been reducing time-to-market by 70% or more with service providers but is also dramatically reducing opex costs.
