Meet Customers’ Exact Requirements Reliably with Foolproof Diameter Charging

Telecom industry is always evolving. Whether it is technology, type of service or architecture; there is always something transforming, and most of the times changing for the good. Telecom architecture has also seen many alterations in the recent times. The revamping of Radius interface into the much improved Diameter interface has been at the forefront of the major changes that have taken place in the recent times. Diameter charging has become the status quo in the telecom industry, and essential for rightful operations of modern-day telecom operations.

Why Diameter Charging is better than Radius Charging?

Radius was conceptualized for implementing fundamental authentication for dial-up internet connections. In a common Radius authentication case, a user of services supplies his credentials i.e. username and password to log into a server. The server then checks/authenticates the credentials against a central LDAP policy store. Although Radius has being effective in the past, it is not ideal for IMS, in which, a present-day service subscriber uses different types of automatically delivered Telecom Services.

Compared to the Radius authentication method, Diameter Charging has the following advantages:

  1. Trustworthy AAA message transmission over TCP/SCTP protocol
  2. Equipped failover mechanism that ensures consistent message service delivery
  3. Based on peer to peer network architecture, it allows for greater versatility in authentication
  4. Transmission of AAA messages securely utilizing IPSec or TLS

Diameter charging is the gold standard for modern-day charging and billing process. To ensure that you are able to reap maximum rewards out of a billing operation, it is essential to complement diameter charging with a modern-day telecom billing platform.

 

Leverage Diameter Charging with Versatile Telecom Platform

Diameter charging is simply a part of telecom architecture. For complete success of a telecom operation, there are many elements that need to come together. Have a look:

  1. Convergence in billing – A centralized charging architecture is essential to bring in convergence into billing. An Online Charging System (OCS) charges every service in real-time and allows telcos to create and deliver a single invoice. The creation of a single invoice brings in transparency into the billing tasks and allows telcos to build a bond of trust with their subscribers. Also, in these times where the number of telecom services is increasing consistently, there is a need to organize billing into a compact and easy-to-understand operation.
  2. Reporting and analytics – The intricacy of telecom operations can be simplified if you have complete access to reporting and analytics tools. For a telecom operator to be successful, it needs to decipher the trends and understand customer behavior. Reporting and analytics provide telcos complete information about customers’ whereabouts, their roaming charges, the kind of services they use, credit limit etc. At Telgoo5, you get access to complete reporting functionality as we provide you a slave database that is directly updated by a master database.

Security of information – The billing system holds vital subscriber information that simply cannot fall into the wrong hands. It would be calamitous for a telco to lose customer’s credit card or bank account information to a hacker. Therefore, it is essential to opt for a robust billing system that keeps all the information encrypted. Telgoo5 is a next-gen MNO/MVNO/MVNE platform that excels at securing information and allows for consistent telecom operations.
