CSPs experience a major revamp due to the opportunities 5G technology brings. Moving beyond traditional business models, they need to rethink of their entire charging and billing process and adopt new and innovative architectures, with open APIs, in order to efficiently monetize new services.

A contemporary monetization solution must be convergent at all levels. It must be able to deliver quickly, bundles of both traditional and innovative digital services, support current and emerging charging models and offer outstanding customer experience.

NGINius-Charging™ is a comprehensive, convergent monetization suite which continuously evolves supporting new charging parameters (e.g. speed, latency, reliability, throughput, volume, QoS, mobility in the 5G era), supporting at the same time traditional telecom models, through a wide range of pricing options (prepaid, postpaid, hybrid) and supply models (B2B, B2C, B2B2?). It uses cutting-edge architectural and delivery principles in order to satisfy CSPs' requirement for an agile and cost-effective monetization solution with streamlined operations.
