Monetisation Platforms


This programme examines four key areas of monetisation: billing and offer creation, charging and policy management, partner and interconnect management and revenue assurance and fraud management. It assesses opportunities for vendors and operators in monetising established connectivity and new digital services. The programme is based on 25 years of research involving interviews with vendors and operators to produce annual market shares and 5-year forecasts as well as strategy reports.


  • Delayering. The implications on monetisation systems and delivery of network as a service (NaaS).
  • IT stack consolidation. The shift to SaaS/managed services and consolidation on disparate OSS/BSS applications to simplified tightly integrated agile platforms.
  • Monetisation of 5G standalone (SA) networks and beyond. The impact of new wholesale, B2B and ‘non-telco’ services on monetisation systems.

Questions answered

  • How should vendors prepare their applications to become AI/GenAI-native?
  • What are the implications of delayering on an operator’s monetisation systems when they need to monetise different parts of their business when they are viewed and managed as independent partners?
  • Do standalone charging, policy management, billing and mediation solutions continue to make sense when operators are looking to simplify their IT stacks?
  • How big is the monetisation platforms market and what will drive growth in the future ?
  • What are the implications of managing complex partner ecosystems?
