Swisscom signs real-time charging deal
European operator Swisscom has announced it will be using the Matrixx Charging Engine to handle real-time rating, charging and balance management for its prepaid and postpaid mobile subscribers. It is the first customer announcement that US firm Matrixx has made since its inception.
As part of the selection process, Swisscom ran rigorous end-to-end trials for performance, network grade reliability, and functionality, the firm said.
“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. “After extensive testing, it clearly demonstrated a breakthrough in the technology required to enable CSPs to deploy online charging as a ubiquitous solution.”
He added that the solution will also serve all of the operators’ real-time charging needs as it deploys its LTE network, including support for large enterprise customers and sophisticated post-paid pricing plans.
