Convergent Charging

Initially, convergent charging addressed the integration of mobile intelligent network (IN)-based and IT-based billing, rating and charging on a single platform to enable seamless movement between prepaid and postpaid. Recently, communications service providers (CSPs) have broadened this concept to address services outside their walled garden. This allows CSPs to combine Internet Protocol (IP)-based services from content providers with their own mobile and fixed-line postpaid services.
