[Infonetics]: Operators Say they Need to Replace Convergent Charging Systems

An operator survey conducted by Shira Levine (pictured), directing analyst for next gen OSS and policy, Infonetics Research, shows that "Skyrocketing mobile growth has led to a dramatic increase in mobile transactions, driving some convergent charging systems to the limit and, in many cases, driving operators to replace the systems they already have in place ,, New service offerings and hybrid (prepaid and postpaid) accounts are highly rated applications driving convergent charging system deployments .. 'Supporting marketing initiatives' topped the list of business drivers behind respondents' convergent charging investments".

"In an open-ended question asking operators who they consider to be the top three convergent charging solution suppliers, operators most often named Amdocs, Ericsson, and Huawei".

In June Infonetics forecasted that carriers will spend $14B on convergent charging over next 5 years - see "Comverse, Huawei and Ericsson Lead Convergent Charging Market ($14B/5years)" - here
