a dynamic Online Charging System that delivers real-time charging and associated control to manage financial risk and support growth
ALLinONE OCS is a hosted, supplier agnostic, highly scalable solution able to provide real-time rating functionality to support a range of business propositions. Integration with wholesale suppliers in markets such as telecoms opens up the ability for providers to offer tailored pre-pay solutions to leverage market opportunities whilst reducing financial risk. Application with traditional post-pay services increases financial control to this market sector.
The ALLinONE OCS allows communications service providers to charge their customers in real time, based on service usage, enabling them to bill pre-pay and post-pay services on the same platform. This provides clients that utilise the ALLinONE Billing platform with a minimum risk service, as all usage must have credit available (Bundle or out of Bundle call data capping limits applied) prior to it being accepted, automatically cutting the session when funds run out. ALLinONE OCS allows complete call control based on the proposition or credit that a customer has purchased, ensuring that credit limits are enforced.
Lifecycle provides the ALLinONE product suite as a fully managed, private cloud solution within UK data centres. The infrastructure is specifically designed and proven to support highly available, resilient and scalable environments, capable of processing over 1 billion chargeable events per month. A range of service support options are available to meet the needs of organisations, from new entrants to established providers.
For ALLinONE OCS there are a number of different ways the functionality can be deployed depending on services required by the client. Options exist for the ALLinONE OCS to be deployed within a full ALLinONE suite to deliver an end to end pre pay business support system for clients, which includes call control and associated automated workflows to define the customer journey. Alternatively the provision of management APIs only can be deployed to enable a client to utilise existing solutions within their own ecosystem.
Example deployment options for telecoms wholesalers include:
Product to support provision of wholesale pre-pay services to MVNOs
Solution to support an out of the box white label full Retail Pre-Pay solution
Mechanism to offer Near Real Time CDR feed to wholesale and retail service providers
Solution to enhance white label post-pay services
API Suite for Real Time Rating (Diameter/ Other)
API Suite for Real Time Rating and Management of Service Control
For a full understanding of the deployment options available and to discuss bespoke requirements an initial workshop with a member of the Lifecycle Projects Team is recommended.
