Why is cloud native rating and charging essential to success with agile, 5G monetization?
Network elasticity to support charging for the explosion of devices that are coming.
Web-scale architecture to automate development and deployment of highly targeted service offerings.
Leveraging a microservices-based architecture to ensure high availability under load.
Our resilient, cloud native architecture ensures full availability, harnessing the agility of containers and container orchestration while running efficiently with high physical server utilization.
MATRIXX Converged Charging System
Architected, developed and deployed to scale in response to business needs and network demands
Microservices based, container architecture
scales as needed, harnessing open source tools to optimize resource utilization and automate operational functions
executes in parallel streams, harnessing normalization to improve performance with decision tables
may be deployed at the edge and scale independently for event ingestion and load balancing
is managed in all-master clusters to ensure ACID compliance resilience with ultra-low latency performance
MATRIXX Cloud Native Design
Launch quickly, respond rapidly and heal automatically.
MATRIXX Digital Commerce deploys microservices as containers for resource isolation and dependency management.
Kubernetes enable management of services in a resource pool abstracted from the underlying hardware.
Facilitate service-to-service communication decoupled from application code in a highly dynamic cloud environment.
MATRIXX | Kubernetes Cloud Native Architecture
1. Business API Gateway
Converts simple RESTful API requests from self-care channels and other OSS/BSS systems into a MATRIXX internal messaging format.
2. Charging Function
Provides a HTTP/2 interface to the 5G core network and registration to the Network Repository Function; equivalent network gateways specific to each protocol support non-5G interactions such as DIAMETER, RESTful and SIGTRAN.
3. Inbound Routing
Load balances, routes all requests to the correct processing pod and manages all responses to the initiator.
4. Rating Function
Processes all network and subscription management requests to determine usage, execute the rating business logic, and prepare the responses and balance impacts.
5. Charging Gateway Function
Reliably publishes events to the event repository for long term storage as well as deliver high volume, low latency event streaming.
6. Active MQ
Delivers outbound integration from MATRIXX to external services.
7. Payment Gateway
Connects to various payment providers to enable real-time purchases, scheduled payments and threshold-triggered recharges.
Generates templated human-readable messages and delivers to end-customers via push notifications, SMS or email.
9. Event Streaming
Kafka adapter provides real-time access to events as they are produced for use by billing, analytics, campaign management, financial reporting and network management functions.
10. Account Balance Management Function
A stateful component that provides a fully available all-mastered database of subscriber / device balances for resilient in-memory storage.
Processes offline transaction files to maintain a near-real-time database to be used for fast restart and periodical creation of checkpoint images for backup.
