Mediation

With 5G and IoT creating billions more device connections, you need a way to process customer data usage in real time. Easily collect and manage any type of network data at scale with CSG.

Harness the Power of Data

25 billion. That’s how many device connections there will be by 2025, according to the GSMA. Each connection will be linked to different mobile networks around the world—and each will generate network data at different intervals. You’ll need to move transaction processing from offline to real-time, and scale to support high data volumes and peaks in traffic—think tens of millions of events processed at once. And all those device connections? You’ll need to be able to activate them in real time, anywhere in the world.

CSG’s mediation solutions capture and process customer usage events from today and tomorrow’s networks—4G, LTE, 5G and more—and do it all at scale. Manage offline and online mediation from a single solution, and deploy virtualized network functions (VNFs) so you can support high-volume transactions at a low cost. Respond in real time to user requests for any service, from multimedia and premium content to micro-transactions, and provide financial authentication and authorization for service delivery. Plus, activate any new network service in real time on any network, for tens or tens of millions of devices at once.


Manage Network Events with Ease

Need a solution that can process billions of events? Look no further. Today, our largest customer processes over 178 billion records per day at a single site alone. We have over 200 mediation and activation installations worldwide, with customers in over 80 countries. Our mediation solutions supports mediation across any domain (mobile, fixed, broadband) across all functions (offline, online, network). We support any deployment approach (on-premise, cloud, licensed software, or a fully managed service) so you can find the model that works best for you.

Online Mediation

When you’re charging for 5G and IoT services in real time, you need a mediation solution that can collect, correlate and validate that data in real time, too. Shield your real-time rating systems from complexity by enriching and cleansing data before it hits those systems. We use Diameter for real-time collection of subscriber usage event and can handle protocol conversion using our charging function (CHF). Our online mediation solution can handle over 100,000 transactions per second, all at extremely low latency.

Offline Mediation

Collect, aggregate, correlate and normalize data before sending it to your offline charging systems (OFCS). Our offline mediation solution is in production in the AWS public cloud for massive scalability. And our vOFCS is certified under the VMware “Ready for NFV” program to make our customers’ NFV deployments even faster and easier.

Service Activation

The faster you activate devices and services, the sooner you’ll earn revenue. Build your own workflows to activate incoming service orders through our intuitive user interface, and break down complex service orders into a series of manageable tasks. And do it all at scale—our service activation solution handles millions of activation requests per day.
