MATRIXX’s New 5G-Compliant Charging System Supports Microservices and Containers Orchestrated with Kubernetes
MATRIXX Software this week introduced what it claims as the industry’s first 5G digital commerce platform including a 5G 3GPP-compliant Converged Charging System (CCS).
The newly released MATRIXX Digital Commerce Platform delivers operational efficiencies and cost benefits by harnessing microservices and containers orchestrated with Kubernetes, says the Company. It features open-source Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) components with web scale advantages enabling platform independence.
It also supports the full spectrum of monetization across 3G, 4G and 5G networks, providing a single platform on which operators can standardize their offerings while simplifying their IT infrastructure. The extreme scalability coupled with the business configurability of MATRIXX Digital Commerce enables new use cases requiring ultra-low latency and dynamic network slices, including right-sized Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and pricing.

Implementing MATRIXX’s 5G-ready solution provides operators a head start on innovative packaging and pricing ahead of 5G standalone deployments. MATRIXX is working with operators to plan 5G standalone deployments, where 5G services will demand the agility of a cloud native digital commerce platform.
