5G Operational Readiness: Huawei's CBS Monetization Solution

This IDC Market Note provides IDC's perspective on Huawei's CBS R20 rating, charging, and billing solution. The document explains how CBS R20 is engineered to meet the 5G billing needs of B2B business solutions and B2C connectivity customers while also addressing the B2C charging requirements from 3G/4G connectivity services."There are several operational needs that must be addressed within a hybrid 5G network. New charging parameters and combinations of parameters to rate and charge how a service is used are becoming commonplace. Multipartner interactions and different business model relationships must be accounted for in real time. Policy-controlled charging is an integral part of successful business management and so is the ability to accommodate charging components from numerous technology and data streams. Monetization solutions such as CBS R20 must exhibit extreme flexibility to meet the dynamic business needs from a 5G network environment," says Karl Whitelock, research vice president, Communications Service Provider Operations and Monetization at IDC.
