CSG Systems International announced "CSG Integrated Charging and Policy (ICP) 2.0 .. Key features include support for the use of parental controls, mobile tethering, managing bill shock, and setting defined usage and spending limits and notifications .. When policy and charging are combined, solutions for managing flexible customer consumption caps, and enabling choices for monetary top-ups, quality or speed upgrades/downgrades become possible. CSG ICP 2.0 enables these scenarios in an adjunct fashion to the CSP’s existing systems through an interoperable, standards-based framework.
With CSG ICP 2.0, CSPs can realize faster time to market and monetization of new services on advanced networks using new pre-configured use cases that support multi-device plans and tethering plans out of the box"
