Real Time Charging Solution enables Service Providers to streamline their operations, focus on subscribers and increase ARPU. The traditional compartmentalized approach of running pre-paid and post-paid systems as separate businesses inhibits business efficiency by removing focus from the subscriber to the technology. Real Time Charging enables communication Service Providers to run their operations as a single business using its real-time, high-volume event handling and seamless subscriber management capabilities.

In case of pre-paid services a voice, data or video session is normally controlled by some network element, for example the Service Control Point (SCP) for an Intelligent Network (IN). The SCP controls the voice or data session and uses the services of some charging and balance management platform to monetize the session and check if there is sufficient balance left for the session to continue. A network element analogous to the SCP of the IN exists for most of the technologies available today or shall be made available for technologies of tomorrow.
