At Mobile World Congress, Ericsson will demonstrate Revenue Manager 16 with multiple use cases, including real-time OTT monetization, embedded analytics, elastic scaling, real-time usage and invoicing and adaptive business logic
Ericsson announced the launch of Ericsson Revenue Manager 16, a convergent, real-time charging and billing product for digital service providers. It leverages a breakthrough, cloud-based, highly configurable architecture to deliver new levels of automation, flexibility and operational efficiency. It is the first business support system (BSS) designed for the opportunities and challenges of the Networked Society. Operators can use Ericsson Revenue Manager to launch new products and services in minutes, capture new revenue streams through real-time revenue sharing with partners, and drive customer experience through personalized omni-channel interactions, embedded analytics and unified policy control.
Estonian operator Telia Eesti is trialing Revenue Manager in a live environment. "As an operator in Estonia our key challenge is delivering digital services that meet high customer expectations. We are delighted that Ericsson has launched a charging and billing system that addresses many of the digital challenges we are facing. Revenue Manager appears to offer a break-through approach and we are very happy to have the opportunity to be a trial partner to fully understand what it can do," said Tiit Tammiste, CTO (Chief Technology Officer), Telia Eesti.
Karl Whitelock, Director Operations, Orchestration, Data Analytics & Monetization (ODAM) Global Competitive Strategies at Stratecast says: "Current BSS systems need to change dramatically if operators are to remain relevant. To this end, business management and monetization systems must be re-architected in support of new digital business models and cost reduction efforts. Ericsson Revenue Manager is a scalable BSS product for convergent monetization, with a focus on service delivery and customer experience processes. It addresses the telecom and non-telecom service offer processes that enable run-time introduction of digital services.
Ericsson Revenue Manager engineers worked closely with technology partners to create ground breaking solutions to these challenges.
Mark Potter, Senior Vice President and CTO, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise Group says: "Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) is proud to have been part of the team working with Ericsson to deliver Revenue Manager's breakthrough performance and scalability. The characteristics of HPE infrastructure that support Ericsson Revenue Manager provide the foundation for its industry-changing levels of flexibility and operational efficiency."
Ove Anebygd, Head of Solution Area OSS/BSS at Ericsson said: "Ericsson Revenue Manager is a game-changer that acts as a digital business enabler for service providers, reducing time-to-market from months to minutes and supporting any business model. It represents the realization of Ericsson's vision of the true promise of Business Support Systems. Operators are making Ericsson Revenue Manager a key component of transformative IT programs while moving away from complex and costly BSS environments."
