Capana Implements Content Settlements

Telenor has decided to increase the usage of its current Roaming and Interconnect Settlements platform to cover also Content Settlements. The first step is to introduce revenue-share based settlements for the wholesale Service Provider partners. Handling of Service Provider content settlements will go live in Q4 2010.

Introducing a complex settlements process in just four weeks confirms the system flexibility of CapSettle, as well as the professionalism and complex business understanding that is a known trademark of Capana.

The Service Provider content settlements process is the first step towards having all Telenor Denmark content settlements within CapSettle. This is a project planned for 2011.

CapSettle Hits Another Milestone

With its capacity to process more than 4 billion transactions per day, the Wholesale settlements flagship CapSettle challenges earlier limits. Although CapSettle is perhaps not yet likely to find an operator with that enormous amount of daily Wholesale transactions, in the re-seller and MVNO set-up, the daily transactions will increase. In order to be able to handle this, CapSettle has extended its potential.

One of our initial focuses has always been performance”, says Johan Asterholm, operational product manager at Capana, and continues: “There has always been cost consciousness at our customers’, and we’d like to show them how much we can process on a low cost server – a server that has a list price below 10 000 USD.

Capana Releases Roaming

The next step towards true convergence in wholesale billing has been taken, as Capana releases its support for roaming settlements in high performance application CapSettle. This includes support for TAP, RAP, NRTRDE, RAEX and EID. In terms of wholesale, true convergence means that CapSettle can now handle all different parts of the partner to partner relation, including areas such as Interconnect, Content, MVNO and, naturally, roaming settlements.
