NGS Product is a convergent, multi company system, which provides retail, wholesale & interconnect billing and customer care functionality for local exchange, long distance, Internet Cellular, GPRS, & UMTS, voice mail and answering services.
NGS provides billing functionality for all of these services with a customer care user interface providing access to the information necessary to service a convergent customer consuming all of these services. The modular nature of our billing product ensures your system keeps pace with your company as you grow into new business areas.
At the same time NGS is Pre- & Postpaid Convergent Billing System. It has one advanced tariff system for both types of the subscribers. It uses OSA/Parlay interface protocol and the most successful implementation was done on HP OpenCall IN platform.
NGS uses N Tier B2B Architecture designed for today’s distributed deployment requirements. The system has been designed to provide the best possible performance for a variety of different sized customers.
NGS is designed to be used with a variety of graphical user interfaces, the initial Internal GUI is written in Java, runs on any Java Compliant platform. Web based front end is for full Internet deployment. There is a domestic script based JavaApplet Front-End solution, similar to one which was used to develop pervious successful product - Jbill (with Intasys Billing Technologies). All interfaces access the same business logic on Application Server. The application server layer is Java, Corba & EJB compliant. The application server layer can be deployed using VisiBroker, Borland Web server or WebLogic.
The system is scalable from running application server and database tiers on the smallest UNIX or Windows server and the user interface on multiple attached Java Stations or PCs. To running the database & application on multiple different distributed servers, with as many clients as required. The use of Java allows for rapid deployment of enhancements, customisation and easy connectivity as well as use of the new network computers (JavaStations), which significantly reduces the cost per customer service workstation.
Our systems are both flexible and modular, that is, our architecture permits the addition or modification of various functions, allowing telecommunications providers to meet their unique system requirements. They are also scalable, that is, they are designed to cost-effectively increase capacity in step with a client's subscriber growth from as little as a few thousand subscribers to upwards of five million.
The business logic is positioned on Application tier, thus the system is flexible from point of view of Data storage. The recommended database to use is an Oracle database, with all executable code written in Java Stored Procedures, making it portable to any UNIX or Windows platform.
Oracle is a key partner in our ongoing development of
NGS. In the telecommunications industry Oracle is the most popular database used with nearly eight times more installations than other providers.
For integration with any external systems on any level it is recommended to use another Sysdate' product - NGIntegrate.
