Convergent Mediation for all IP, Mobile or Fixed services.

Symphony Mediation is a high availability, rules-based, convergent collection and mediation platform that collects raw network usage data and transforms it into rich, billable business information. Symphony™ Mediation platform can accept any event/record format that the network may generate and generates rich records in any format required by OSS or BSS systems.

The Symphony Mediation platform can accept any event/record format that the network may generate, and creates rich records in any format required by OSS or BSS systems. Information can be aggregated, filtered and validated as needed.

Fixed Line, Wireless and Data Usage Mediation

The future will be IP and Wireless data-based, but given the huge investment in existing telephony (fixed and mobile) networks, these will not disappear any time soon. Symphony™ Mediation supports interfaces and CDR formats for all of the major switch and OSS/BSS vendors as well as many others.

Mediation

Sophisticated Billing Models for IP based products and services can only be implemented through the use of a sophisticated mediation system. Without flexible and scalable mediation, "usage-based" and "content-based" billing is not possible. This is because IP network elements do not generate "billing friendly" usage information. Instead, they generate large volumes of piecemeal usage information across many disparate network elements. Symphony™ Mediation enables the creation of self-contained, billable records.

By using our distributed Symphony Input Modules (SIMs) close to the network elements, Symphony™ Mediation is able to control and manage the real-time collection of vast volumes of network data. Once collected, this data is reduced down to meaningful billing information using flexible and powerful filtering, aggregation and correlation tools. This billing information can be represented in the industry standard IPDR format or any other format required.

Symphony Mediation is not tied to any single billing model. Instead, the most flexible approach possible has been taken allowing complete flexibility to implement the business rules required to support virtually any future-billing model. This provides the user with the ability to launch new products and services quickly in full support of the marketing department and regulatory requirements.
