Mountain View, CA, United States, 2009/08/04 - 5.8% CAGR expected through 2013. Stratecast, a division of Frost & Sullivan, has assessed the overall billing market for the converging communications sector through a series of six (6) research reports.
The recently released part three of this series focuses on the billing mediation market, which is projected to grow at 5.8% CAGR through 2013. The key drivers of this growth can be attributed to the rising need for support of new innovative services with the associated change in business models and consolidation of multiple systems for cost control.
Billing-related real-time transaction processing volumes are exponentially increasing, as networks become more distributed, online applications become more prominent, and interactive content increases its presence within all user groups. Multiple suppliers with their customer implementation successes are solid proof points of the importance online mediation is having with Communications Service Providers (CSPs) the world over.
"Collecting, aggregating and correlating customer usage events from various network elements and IT nodes is a monumental task, given the sheer volume of events to be processed and the number of devices from which data is obtained," said Karl Whitelock, Senior Consulting Analyst in Stratecast's OSS BSS Competitive Strategies practice. "Online event mediation—high volume, bi-directional, real-time transaction processing—is the central core from which customer life changing services are now governed."
The billing mediation research report addresses this domain through an assessment of and market profiles for 43 suppliers operating within this sector. It includes a market share analysis of recent financial information pertaining to these companies and a 5-year mediation market forecast.
