COQUITLAM, BRITISH COLUMBIA - Global communications infrastructure company PortaOne, Inc. today announced a new product, which continues the evolution of its PortaBilling100 VoIP billing and customer management platform, designed especially for communication service providers who need an increased reliability, performance and scalability. The new product, PortaBilling Oracularius, meets the needs of Tier 1 and large, fast-growing Tier 2 providers, giving them a full complement of launching, pricing and provisioning capabilities combined with virtually unlimited scalability and assured reliability in Oracle Real Application Cluster environments.
PortaBilling Oracularius extends the proven flexibility and comprehensive functionality of PortaBilling100, PortaOne's highly popular and flexible B/OSS management solution, to an entirely new scale of reliable deployment. The full-featured result is a next-generation billing product which supports a new range of capabilities including real-time mediation and rating; multiple services billing; event-based, usage-based and periodic charging; reseller and distributor channels; e-commerce and customer self-care interface; support for resellers and distributors; custom charging formulas and programmable discount plans; prepaid/postpaid business models; and a support for full billing cycle, from service provisioning to invoicing and collection.
PortaBilling Oracularius is a converged billing system, making it easy to bundle:
- Residential, IP Centrex and wholesale phone services
- Data access services
- Mobile services
- Value-added services (messaging, content download, etc.)
The system supports this level of bundling while keeping the centralized control of customer's funds and providing him with a consolidated bill. In addition, PortaBilling Oracularius offers an open architecture, easy integration with third-party systems via XML API, and uniquely offers its product source code to users in order to allow customization by PortaOne customers and/or third-party developers.
PortaBilling Oracularius uses Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) as a back-end data storage, while deploying the real-time billing logic on a cluster of multiple billing servers. This ensures that the system continues to operate even if any server experiences a hardware malfunction and allows to scale up the performance by simply adding more servers to the cluster.
PortaBilling100 has an unparalleled reputation for reliability, built on deployments in hundreds of Tier 2 and Tier 3 telco environments. With PortaBilling Oracularius, larger providers can be assured of industry-leading performance and stability. As quickly as the VoIP industry is changing, providers need to know their management infrastructure can grow with them. PortaBilling Oracularius is able to answer that requirement."Roman Khalenkov, Sales and Marketing director for PortaOne
PortaBilling Oracularius' real-time billing engine can work in conjunction with a wide range of telecommunication network equipment (both TDM and VoIP including NexTone) for user authorization, flexible call routing (LCR, time-of-day routing, dynamic routing based on ASR and call quality, profit-guarantee routing, customized routing plans) and CDR mediation and rating.
The product, built on Oracle Enterprise Linux server architecture, is proven as a highly reliable and secure carrier-grade solution. What's more, it is pre-integrated with PortaOne's PortaSIP (class 4/5 softswitch) for quick and low-cost standards-based implementation, as well as PortaOne's PortaUM Unified Messaging System and PortaBridge conferencing server as an out-of-the-box solution for residential and SMB-hosted IP PBX/Centrex services.
