PortaOne (News - Alert), a provider of billing platform deployment solutions for the telecom industry, has recently unveiled that Multiregional Transit Telecom (MTT), a Russian telecommunications company, has improved efficiency significantly by selecting the PortaBilling Oracularius as its telecom billing platform of choice.
PortaBilling Oracularius is a carrier-grade converged billing software system designed to meet the needs of Tier 1 and fast-growing Tier 2 telecom providers. The software is built specifically for Oracle (News - Alert) Real Application Cluster (RAC) environments. It supports a wide range of billing strategies including real-time mediation and rating, multiple services billing, programmable discounts, prepaid/postpaid business models, and the flexibility to support event-based, usage-based and periodic charging, among others.
PortaBilling Oracularius, according to Evgeny Vasiliev, MTT general director, has the reliability necessary to support the pattern of growth at MTT. Vasilrev added in a statement, “With new competitors and the continual introduction of new services and technologies, we needed a customer management infrastructure that can keep up. PortaBilling Oracularius is meeting that challenge."
MTT offers a suite of IP telephony-based solutions for social networks and a diverse mobile network lineup as well as hosted IPPBX and IP-based residential text/voice/video.
Vasiliev added, "PortaBilling Oracularius helps us market these services in attractive packages for different customer segments."
By moving its customer management and billing infrastructure to a new software platform, MTT has become one of the biggest domestic and international long distance carriers in the country. The new platform has given the company competitive advantages by helping it offer everything from flexible service bundles to consolidated billing statements and unlimited scalability.
Another important feature of PortaBilling Oracularius is that it also allows carriers to bundle any combination of traditional and emerging services. As a result, they can offer any service ranging from residential and IP Centrex services and wholesale/international termination to mobile services, WiFi/WiMAX/broadband, IPTV (News - Alert) and triple-play.
Further, the telecom billing platform also features virtual cluster orientation, which allows users to deliver seamless redundancy and availability.
