RTBS with Parlay/OSA platform implementation
Shares the same data, Tariff and discount System with post-paid Rating Engine. It is an element of truly convergent Customer Care and Billing (CC&B) System.
Real-time Billing System powered by NewSystems team enhances existing Billing System and communicates with core network using industry-standard Parlay/OSA APIs. RTBS is enhanced existing product with a multi-session capability to establish real-time control of several simultaneous charging sessions for the same account.
Implementation of the Parlay/OSA APIs for current state consists of
- Call Control Prepaid Application ("voice" events).
- OSA Framework, call Control and User Interaction SCFs (it is implied that full-featured FW and call Control SCFs are provided by a Network).
- Charging Application, which allows user account management using UI SCF.
- More services are to be supported by PPA (SMS, MMS, packet events etc).
