LTE Real-time Billing Support Systems (BSS) Operational Issues and Market Opportunities
ourth generation (4G) cellular via the Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard is transforming the entire mobile communications ecosystem. One of the profound ways that mobile will never be the same is the wide range of applications that will available that were heretofore impractical due to previous bandwidth constraints. Many of these applications will be video-based, or otherwise requiring real-time QoS as well as real-time billing. This report includes market analysis of the real-time LTE BSS market, BSS/OSS market as a whole, and several case studies on the use of real-time billing functions in an LTE environment. The research also includes forecasting in several key areas.
