Real-time charging. Real control.
What is OCS?
Accurate real-time usage metering is essential in most telecoms markets today, and it is especially important where prepaid models are dominant. An Online Charging System (OCS) can be thought of as the heart of a telecommunication network architecture; all the transactions within the system are linked with and processed by the OCS, such as the subscriber’s account balance and charging transactions. The network operator or service provider can use the OCS to enforce credit limits by automatically controlling service access and producing call data records (CDRs) in order to apply the correct charges to the billing platform.
