New Ericsson Digital BSS products demonstrated at MWC 2019
In November 2018 we announced the new Ericsson BSS strategy with increased investment in our Digital BSS portfolio. At last week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona we were demonstrating the new products arising from that strategy for the first time.
The Ericsson BSS strategy is designed to support a low-risk but effective step-by-step evolution to the Digital world that is being built with 5G and IoT. The solutions are catalog-driven and pre-integrated with other Ericsson solutions such as self-care, analytics, OSS and Core, and also support available standards for multivendor integration.
The increased investment has resulted in some new products, with new, simpler and more logical names, and some updates to existing products. Here are the highlights:
Ericsson Digital Monetization Platform
Ericsson Digital Monetization Platform is a product catalog enabled, convergent charging and billing solution to monetize new 5G business models. It has evolved to meet operators’ increasing demand for end-to-end "best-in-suite" solutions that combine powerful business performance with cost efficient operations, management and deployment.
As an evolution of the popular Charging and Billing in One, Ericsson Digital Monetization Platform allows a low-risk but effective digital transformation, enabling convergence and the introduction of a powerful product catalog to drive efficiency, reduce TCO and time-to-market and promote innovation.
Ericsson Charging is a modular, scalable, open, convergent Online Charging System (OCS) using industry standards and protocols.
An evolution of the industry-leading Ericsson Charging System, Ericsson Charging provides a low-risk but effective route to capture and secure revenue streams and take advantage of business opportunities from both traditional telecom services as well as digital services, 5G and IoT.

Ericsson Billing is a convergent billing solution for telecoms that combines an unrivalled combination of out-of-the box features and high configurability.
As an evolution of the widely-installed Ericsson BSCS iX, Ericsson Billing provides a low-risk but effective route to capture and secure revenue streams and take advantage of business opportunities from both traditional telecom services as well as digital services. The new release focuses particularly on 5G, IoT, B2B and partners.

We had a lot of feedback from customers at Mobile World Congress that they are pleased that the strategy we announced last year is starting to pay off with these new products being demonstrated at the show.
