Usage-based billing at a granular level

MediationZone enables companies to automatically capture usage events, at scale, in order to bill with extreme precision. It has 5G capabilities, enabling companies to create new services, business models and pricing. MediationZone 10, our latest major product release, is cloud native, supports dynamic workflows and has zero touch management.

A revenue-critical
layer in billing systems

MediationZone is a vendor-agnostic solution that enables telecoms to choose best-of-breed technologies. We also help telecoms preserve their existing BSS investment while operating in a multi-vendor environment. For enterprises, MediationZone is a key component in complex billing systems offered by companies such as SAP, Salesforce and Zuora.

5G network slicing and usage monetization

MediationZone 10 opens up new opportunities for network slicing, network slicing as a service, and usage-based billing as a service. This enables companies to launch exciting new services and ways to monetize usage data. With 5G, latency, bandwidth and the number of devices connected can be monetized in different ways.

For example, a mission-critical healthcare app might need guaranteed low latency, which could be purchased. Or a streaming service may require high bandwidth, or a car manufacturer may need to connect an entire fleet of cars. All of these are new opportunities presented by 5G and network slicing.

What makes MediationZone special?

1. Adaptability. A lot of products force you to change your input before processing. MediationZone can take any data in any format, so there’s no disruption to your business.

2. Flexibility. MediationZone can stitch together data in any way you want, based on your rules and pricing. We are a many-to-many, any-to-any solution.

3. Scalability. You don’t have to be scared of huge volumes of data or wonder what happens when your business grows. MediationZone can handle it.
