Nokia launches cloud charging solution on AWS for CSPs

Nokia leverages AWS Well-Architected Framework to support ultra low-latency, high frequency charging

Nokia has deployed its cloud-native convergent charging solution on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to accelerate communications service providers (CSPs) migration of business-critical, high frequency charging applications to the public cloud, and to deliver the benefits of the cloud for 5G.

This announcement, which builds on an existing relationship with AWS, enables CSPs to efficiently run workloads on AWS and pioneer new monetization schemas as part of their journey towards deploying business support systems (BSS) in the public cloud.

As a containerized network function (CNF) on AWS, Nokia Converged Charging (NCC) provides true continuous availability, supporting the high frequency, low latency demands of an always on, real-time convergent charging system built for the needs of the 5G economy. This enables CSPs to tap new revenue streams from 5G capabilities, including differentiated pricing, network slicing, and flexible product offerings, such as IoT and B2B2X.

Designed for the 5G era, Nokia Converged Charging (formerly Smart Plan Suite) provides real-time rating and charging capabilities to enable new monetization opportunities for digital service providers and a better experience for their consumer and enterprise customers.

As part of Nokia’s monetization solution, Converged Charging is designed for multi-vendor deployments. It is tightly integrated with adjacent BSS capabilities such as mediation, billing and a rich set of Analytics capabilities.

Fabio Cerone, EMEA Telco Managing Director at AWS, said:

“We are pleased that Nokia is expanding its relationship with AWS by offering its cloud-native convergent charging system on AWS and connecting it to various services, such as with analytics to pioneer new monetization schemas.

As the world becomes increasingly cloud-centric, it’s important that our customers can leverage cloud-native solutions to unleash the potential benefits of the cloud and 5G.”

Udi Israel, Head of Digital Business Product Line, Cloud and Network Services at Nokia, said:

“The technological barriers of deploying charging systems on the public cloud, such as network latency, are decreasing rapidly due to faster dedicated connections and far edge CNF deployments; while the advantages, such as having the ability to grow capacity for one-off short-range events, are increasing.

We’re pleased to be furthering that process with Nokia Converged Charging’s deployment on AWS.”
