STOCKHOLM, Sweden, November 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
New Usage Management capability includes advanced functions to count usage and trigger events towards external systems.
DigitalRoute®, a leader in mediation software for service providers, announced today that the latest release of its flagship MediationZone® platform now incorporates advanced unified Usage Management capabilities to count usage and trigger events towards external systems.
For communications service providers, the ability to manage usage data is becoming increasingly important to enforce usage policies, maximize their revenues, as well as meet customer expectations of accurate and timely information about their data consumption.
"As the frequency at which low-value usage events must be captured from the networks increases, propagating data volumes in downstream systems becomes a challenge. For this reason, duplication of Usage Management processes is bound to be untenable for service providers that are looking to simplify their data infrastructure," said Thomas Vasen, Product Manager at DigitalRoute. "Reducing cost and the need to achieve consistent and accurate usage counting across a range of applications beyond billing are some of the reasons why a unified solution is needed."
A recent survey conducted by DigitalRoute also indicates that flexibility in meeting new business requirements is one of the primary challenges for service providers when implementing Usage Management.
With MediationZone 5.1 FR3, DigitalRoute offers service providers a solution that serves any business process while enabling a smooth transition towards a new revenue management environment optimized for personalized tiered bundles rather than rating of individual events. The latest release features new Usage Management capabilities that enable counting of individual usage, rule-based triggering of user-alerts, service limiting actions, and transfer of consolidated billing data.
