Billing system: Internet traffic record automation
Billing systems are – a special software type initially developed for phone providers and Internet providers. Its function is calculation and tariff classification of the used traffic.
Billing systems are created for such tasks like:
- collecting data about the used content;
- daily authorization and customer authentication;
- controlling presence and outflow of funds on a customer’s account;
- charging a certain sum depending on customer’s price package;
- account recharge after a payment for the services provided is done;
- introducing changes in price packages;
- providing statistics of customer’s and provider’s operations.
They keep records of the Internet traffic going through mail gateways, networks interface, NAT and servers.
\All network packets are analyzed. The calculations – are as accurate as possible – up to one byte. The traffic is divided into two types when being recorded:
- external – is obtained from the provider;
- internal – is provided by the users.
During calculations the external traffic may be classified into different categories depending on connection, provider, network and protocol. Billing systems – are an opportunity to get the broad and complete picture of the content used by customers of phone providers and Internet providers. Moreover, you may create a separate counter that will notify you when the limit is reached and block the connection after the limit is exceeded. nbsp;
Some phone and Internet providers’ programs allow for setting an access schedule, for using different connection types for each group of customers, for Internet-traffic, speed and session limitation and for adjusting of crediting. One also sets the discounts and the amount of free content in this program.
Personal profiles are created for all customers. Such profiles contain the information about the account, payments, reasons of blocking, amount of the content used and statistics on user’s activity on the Internet.
Certain programs let you turn billing systems into data usage software that will be able to work with prepaid cards. The following is then also available:
- sales ledger;
The systems may be developed further with adding new tasks and goals.
