-- Ericsson leverages its rating and charging solution across global markets
Rating and charging is the largest segment of the CSP end-to-end billing market, and based on revenue it accounts for nearly half of this market. Ericsson has captured its leadership position within this segment (19 percent) through its Charging and Billing suite which includes Ericsson's Charging and billing in One and Charging System products. Ericsson Charging System provides the real-time rating and charging capabilities of the Ericsson Charging and Billing in One solution.
"With business and technology change taking place so many ways within the communications marketplace, the opportunity to deliver new CSP charging and billing solutions could be perceived as disappointing with only a minimal level of success. The truth, however, is that the CSP billing marketplace is very healthy, with a designation of 'supporter' for business change and 'enabler' of new business model evolution," said
Real-time rating and charging has become a industry-wide requirement for addressing the needs of personalized service offerings and convergence tied to network technology, customer groups, and system deployment strategies. Ericsson continues to lead the rating and charging market through the number of customers it supports and the amount of revenue it collects from those customers. Ericsson's market leadership is reflected not only in the company's present 19 percent share of the rating and charging market, but also in its continued growth in the billing market. Its growth is enabled through knowledge of current and future needs of CSP customers gained from the company's professional services team and through its acquisition of strategic business support assets. Some of these include the 2010 acquisition of
Whitelock also noted, "Personalization of service offerings and price plans is just beginning as network upgrades and personal user devices evolve to support greater levels of information access. The service personalization process is enabled by advances in computing power, the ability by CSPs to track and operate on customer usage information at granular levels, improvements to the rating and charging process via real-time systems with embedded analytical capabilities, and the continued reduction in the cost of each of these advances. Strategic market suppliers, such as Ericsson, stand to gain the most with business support solutions designed to monetize service usage in real-time."
Stratecast expects that Ericsson will continue to grow, in both revenue and customers, as the global billing market continues to discover the critical role that flexible pricing plans and service offers plays to both consumers and business customers.
