Challenge

Processing data in complex ecosystems

5G enables use cases that go far beyond selling connectivity in a B2C model. Communications service providers (CSPs) can offer services to companies based on much more granular usage-based metrics. For example, these metrics could include quality of service, performance, network exposure or the distance travelled by an automated vehicle.

Alternatively, CSPs and enterprise companies can partner to offer new services to third parties. In this B2B2X scenario, the third party can be a consumer or another business.

Every party in a B2B2X scenario wants the flexibility to design price models that make sense to them. The problem to solve in these scenarios is how you expose the relevant charging metrics to each party involved, and how the CSP enables them to incorporate this into a billing landscape of their choice. As these services and offerings develop over time, it will be crucial to have the agility in place to quickly enable partners with the right type and quality of usage data.

Solution

Cross-industry usage data expertise

DigitalRoute has 20 years’ experience in enabling usage-based business models at scale. Not only for CSPs, but across a wide variety of industries. We have a long history of collecting and processing any type of usage data from any source, at any volume, in batch or real-time.

DigitalRoute also addresses common shortcomings CSPs have for supporting B2B2X models, through an ability to expose any relevant charging information from the network to a third party. Through cross-industry experience and partnerships with the major cloud billers, we understand what is required to bring a usage-based billing component into the different types of IT landscapes used by CSPs and their partners.

Our usage engine also has built-in error-correction capabilities, and is fully auditable, making partner settlements accurate and transparent.

Results

Ready for any 5G business model

Monetizing 5G-based services in a B2B2X model will require the agility to rapidly onboard new partners and provide them with the self-service and metrics necessary to create their own pricing models based on usage, relevant to their needs.
