MetraTech Corp., the innovative charging, billing, settlement and customer care provider and TNO, an independent research organization whose expertise and research make an important contribution to the competitiveness of companies and organizations, have announced the launch of a new whitepaper. Authored by George Huitema, senior strategist at TNO and Doug Zone, chief technology officer at MetraTech, ‘Income-Based Billing: Transforming Billing from Cost Center to Profit Center’ is available immediately for download from

The paper explains that billing can be a powerful means for controlling resource usage and customer satisfaction in telecoms. In examining increasingly prevalent cases of network congestion and the resulting ‘crowd-out’ effect, the authors conclude that all-you-can-eat subscriptions no longer make sense, as high-value users inevitably get pushed out by the insatiable consumption habits of low-value customers. The result is that every time supply runs out, contention emerges and users perceive that less is being delivered because they have had to spend more time to get the same service.

“Because strategies centered on supply management and extensions to networks are not sustainable long term, managing demand is the better choice,” said George Huitema. “Handled with the correct strategy, operators can optimize utilization of existing network capacity and increase revenues while simultaneously meeting current customer demand.”

Doug Zone adds, “Only with ‘demand management’ through effective monetary pricing can operators influence consumers to optimize what they get from the network, without allowing any one group of users, or any one type of application, or any one behavior at peak periods, to ‘crowd out’ other users.
By segmenting customers according to their relative time and price sensitivities, it is much more likely operators can effectively manage consumption through differential policies that ultimately have a significant impact on behaviors and profits.”

The whitepaper draws on the expertise of MetraTech in business modeling, charging, billing, settlement and customer care alongside TNO’s knowledge of network issues, customer demands, usage patterns and price elasticity. Together, the two organizations help operators analyze and process network and customer utilization data in the most cost-effective manner possible.

Doug Zone concludes, “The convergence of knowledge around price and time cost elasticities with massively scalable charging and billing will help operators reduce crowding out by time-insensitive users and balance utilization in such a way that it opens capacity for time-sensitive and profitable users.”
