Infonetics: Convergent Charging Market Lifting as Operators Replace
First-Gen Systems and Roll Out LTE
Market research firm Infonetics Research  released excerpts from its latest Convergent Charging Software and Services  report, which tracks charging software built to handle multiple dimensions of convergence, including convergence across payment methods, service types, and access networks, along with related consulting, integration, and managed services.
“Healthy growth in the convergent charging market continues, driven in part by a wave of replacement activity as operators swap out their first-generation charging systems for more scalable and flexible solutions that allow them to get new services and offers to the market quickly and efficiently,” reports Shira Levine , directing analyst for service enablement and subscriber intelligence at Infonetics Research .
“We expect LTE  rollouts to further accelerate the market over the next few years,” continues Levine . “Operators will want to capitalize on LTE’s bigger ‘pipe’ via new services and pricing models that better tie the bandwidth consumed to the price being charged.”
