[Infonetics Survey]: Convergent Charging Goes Into 2nd-Gen.; Led by Ericsson, Amdocs and Huawei

A recent survey by Shira Levine, directing analyst for service enablement and subscriber intelligence, Infonetics Research finds that “Convergent charging isn’t just about payment anymore. Operators view it as a key tool in shortening the time-to-market for new services and in creating and delivering more innovative products and bundles .. Other leading factors driving convergent charging investments include better monetization of data services, support of marketing initiatives, and countering competition from over-the-top (OTT) players".

"38% of respondents say their convergent charging deployments are or will be replacing existing software-based charging systems. Infonetics believes this could signal the start of a replacement cycle of 1st-generation convergent charging systems .. When asked to name the top 3 convergent charging vendors, operators overwhelmingly cited Ericsson; coming in at #2 was Amdocs, followed by Huawei".
