Amdocs Announces Support for Service Providers Seeking to Offer and Monetize Cloud-Based Services

Service providers can evolve their corporate business models to bill enterprise and corporate customers for cloud-based services

GENEVA, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- At ITU TELECOM WORLD 2009, Amdocs (NYSE: DOX), the leading provider of customer experience systems, today announced it is providing support for service providers that are delivering cloud-based services to their corporate and enterprise customers.

Corporate customers are turning to both service providers and others companies that provide cloud-based offerings such as software-as-a-service (SaaS), infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) that allow them to source infrastructure and support for different IT applications -- such as e-mail, web conferencing, system security, system backup, disk space, and enterprise resource planning (ERP). According to an IDC report*: "Worldwide Telecom Cloud Billing 2009-2013 Forecast", revenues from Telecom cloud billing are expected to more than double by 2013, reaching more than $350 million.

Both service providers and SaaS providers can now use the Amdocs Convergent Billing solution to provide cloud-based services for these customers. Amdocs' solution for cloud-based services incorporates Amdocs CES products, including billing, charging and mediation. The solutions are packaged with pre-defined business processes, and are offered out-of-the-box for a quick and easy deployment.

In addition to supporting service providers' cloud-based services, Amdocs Convergent Billing solution enables service providers to offer and bill for advanced corporate services that are not delivered via a hosted business model, such as shared allowances, group-level offerings, and flexible discount mechanisms. Using Amdocs "Turbo Charging" technology, service providers can offer corporate customers real-time postpaid services such as notifications and usage information about their services consumption. As a result, service providers can offer a complete suite of corporate services to their customers, supported by one Amdocs solution.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
