"Incumbent charging engines are incapable of supporting 5G use cases, so CSPs must accelerate their deployment of 5G-ready convergent charging systems to effectively monetise standalone 5G."


3GPP has defined a framework for charging in standalone 5G, which follows a radically different approach to tracking and charging for events. Communications service providers (CSPs) will need to deploy new charging systems to monetise standalone 5G use cases because existing systems will not be able to support new requirements.

This report provides:

  • an overview of the key drivers for the adoption of 5G convergent charging systems (CCS)
  • a brief discussion on why CSPs need a new charging engine for 5G applications
  • insight into the key considerations for CSPs as they assess vendor solutions.
