PortaBilling Oracularius Powers New Era of Telephony in Russia
PortaBilling Oracularius from PortaOne is a carrier-grade converged billing software system designed to meet the needs of Tier 1 and fast-growing Tier 2 telecoms that offers a wide range of telephony solutions including hosted VoIP and virtual PBX.
Multiregional Transit Telecom (MTT) in Russia is one of the telcos that has benefited from this billing software. For the past year, MTT has been moving its customer management and billing infrastructure to the new software platform. Over this period, MTT has been steadily migrating customer accounts to the system.
According to PortaOne, the telco has grown to become one of the biggest domestic and international long distance carriers in the country.
PortaOne’s biggest initiative to date has been the switchover of more than one million end-user accounts held by Mail.ru, Russia's largest free e-mail service, to PortaOne's premier platform. Eventually, all of Mail.ru's 25 million users will be served by PortaBilling Oracularius.
"We believe PortaBilling Oracularius has the super-reliability we need to support our pattern of growth," said Evgeny Vasiliev, MTT general director, 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."
PortaBilling Oracularius supports a range of billing strategies including real-time mediation and rating, multiple services billing, programmable discounts, and prepaid/postpaid business models. Though it is designed specifically for Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) environments, the system has the flexibility to support event-based, usage-based and periodic charging, among others.
By moving the customer management and billing infrastructure to PortaBilling Oracularius, MTT has gained new competitive advantages in virtually every corner of the telecom landscape, from flexible service bundles to consolidated billing statements and unlimited scalability for years to come.
In fact, the solution is an ideal fit for the company’s evolving menu of services. The company offers IP telephony for social networks and a diverse mobile network lineup as well as hosted IP PBX and IP-based residential text/voice/video.
