  • CSG International Briefing Paper IMS-VoLTE Mediation

    4G/LTE adoption is increasingly rapidly, spurring the growth of services like VoLTE, HD Voice, and more. In response, mobile operators are racing to launch these innovative digital services and increase market share.

    Supporting services like VoLTE requires proven integration of mediation with IMS networks. But IMS mediation must be in real-time, placing high demands on legacy mediation platforms. Every real-time stream also needs correlation, which legacy systems can’t scale and or cost-effectively support at high volumes.

    A next-generation mediation solution is needed and must support the capabilities that are vital for IMS service. This includes fast-network integration, cost effective scalability, and advanced correlation. By implementing a mediation solution, operators can reduce capex and launch innovative digital services that consumers want and expect.

  • CSG International Briefing Paper Intelligent Routing

    Communications service providers strive to be more agile, and many want to participate in the digital economy. Both goals require CSPs to eliminate complexity from core processes, reduce costs to the business and increase operational efficiencies.

    To support these strategies, many CSPs plan to deploy IMS networks to streamline the network architecture for their future business requirements. They also want to deploy new digital services based on IMS, like VoLTE and HD Voice, to compete with over-the-top voice and messaging platforms like WhatsApp and Skype.

    Intelligent Routing is a critical component of successful long-term IMS implementations. As a mediation function, Intelligent Routing offers intelligent processing, flexibility and responsiveness. Intelligent Routing also shields charging and policy systems from the complexities of network evolution. By implementing an Intelligent Routing solution, CSPs can reduce costs, drive revenue, and quickly launch new services.

  • TSM Lawful Compliance Datasheet

    Global crime and security threats are fueling demand from law enforcement and civil agencies for subscriber usage data and
    ad hoc reports from communication service providers(CSPs). Quick turnarounds are essential, and the quality of the data and reports
    provided can mean the difference between the success and failure of an investigation, and ultimately apprehension and prosecution.

  • CSG International Briefing Paper Network Mediation

    Communication service providers (CSPs) have a pedigree in collecting usage data — in extremely large quantities and from a diverse range of network interfaces. This data is used for billing and accounting purposes such as managing accounts, issuing statements, and collecting payments. Other common applications include wholesale settlements, roaming clearing and fraud detection.

    As a result, CSPs have a wealth of information held captive as raw data in not only in back office systems, but also in their networks. With network mediation, CSPs can unlock the value of data to gain insight into their organizations. The result: both direct and indirect impact on the bottom line, as well as increased service quality and reduced churn.

  • Monetizing LTE - What's the Right Pricing Strategy?

    The success of LTE and mobile broadband is no longer a matter for speculation—in terms of users, it became the dominant mobile technology in developed Asia in 2015, and other regions are following quickly behind. Customers clearly like what LTE brings—wherever the technology is rolled out, data usage quickly doubles and continues on an upward trajectory. 

    So LTE is now sufficiently well-established worldwide that we can ask in this white paper: are we turning this popular and revolutionary technology into business success? Where are we seeing the highest monetization, what pricing and charging strategies are proving most effective, and are traditional BSS systems capable of supporting the industry’s efforts to gain a viable return on its technology investment?

  • Profiting from the Internet of Things (IoT): Above and Beyond Connectivity

    The forecasts that envision 50 billion connected devices by 2017 are staggering. Especially when you consider these forecasts are based upon counting only devices – smart phones, smart tablets, smart meters and the like – where the connectivity itself is central to the device’s function.

    This paper looks at the potential business opportunity for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) in the growing arena of the Internet of Things (IoT) and asks: what is necessary to keep CSPs profitably at the heart of M2M's rapidly evolving ecosystems? To monetize M2M, what business models are carriers adopting and what promises the greatest profit?

    It seems an evolutionary imperative for CSPs to adapt their OSS/BSS to meet the new environmental realities of the Internet of Things and jump to the top of the M2M food chain. Download the white paper to learn how CSPs can manage the data, devices, and services associated with M2M to move beyond connectivity and deliver convergent insights and enhanced value.

  • Capturing the Enterprise Market: Profit Potential in Personalization

    CSPs have long sought to serve the enterprise market with bespoke offerings tailored to the precise needs of large corporate customers. Now, with its Information Communication Technology (ICT) spend growing, the SMB market is proving increasingly attractive to CSPs keen to avoid the intense price pressures of consumer segments. But just because they are small, it doesn’t mean that they fit into neat homogeneous categories of needs. Each small business has its own unique needs – and they are business needs, not technological ones – and the CSP that can meet these needs as closely as possible will be the one that wins and retains the SMB’s loyalty.

    The provision of personalized packages, presented simply and clearly for a non‐technical audience, is no easy task. Behind the scenes, the business support systems (BSS) must have fundamental capabilities to deliver the products and services in a tailored way. Many CSPs provide personalization for their large enterprise customers, but have found it challenging for their smaller business customers.

    Download white paper for more information on how CSPs can attract and support small and medium businesses.

  • Future Networks – A Formula for Success?

    This whitepaper looks at the arrival of 4G as the last detail of the next generation network topology and asks: can the market ever reach its full potential without a fully upgraded business support systems beneath it? Can future networks work with legacy software, or will this be like dropping a Formula One engine into a family car? To monetize network capabilities, does the supporting framework need to be upgraded to racing performance?

    Advances in network technology will be wasted if they cannot be controlled and monetized by a compatible Business Support Systems (BSS). Legacy BSS platforms typically lack the power, responsiveness and agility to really put the capability of next‐generation networks onto the road. Future networks will succeed or fail on the strength or weakness of their business support platforms and without substantial upgrade, legacy BSS will collapse under the weight of 4G.

    To fully exploit your investments, CSG believes the BSS of the future will need to reflect network capabilities—more powerful, more responsive, and less rigid in how it’s applied.
