"Fido Billing"

Purpose and main characteristics of the system Automated settlement system (ACP) “Fido Billing” is a multifunctional information system for large and medium-sized companies with an extensive organizational structure that are providers of telecommunications services. ACP “Fido Billing” is designed to automate technological processes associated with the provision of telecommunications services, to automate the calculation of the cost of services provided, to manage financial and legal relations with clients. One of the main advantages of the system is that a company that has a geographically distributed network of telecommunications service providers who use their own tariff and accounting policies has the opportunity to centrally manage and implement accounting and tariff policies in a single data processing center. This opportunity eliminates the need for each territorial division to have its own software and hardware complex for settlements with the company’s clients. The system is implemented in a three-level architecture (WEB technology) with a single information processing center. RDBMS Oracle 10g is used as a database server; any application server with J2EE container support can be used as an application server, in particular, Oracle AS, Resin AS, JBOSS and others. Composition ACP “Fido Billing” functionally consists of the following subsystems:
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM);
  • Accounting and control of payments;
  • Administration;
  • Information and reference service (Personal account);
  • Tarification (billing);
  • Collection and preliminary processing of information;
  • Telecommunications equipment management;
  • Statistics and analytics.
The automated payment system “Fido Billing” is implemented in accordance with the requirements of the industry standard TSt 45-063:2007.

In addition, this module implements functions that allow you to keep records of internal organizational information.structure of the enterprise - list and hierarchy of divisions and departments, list of employees. The system includes a flexible mechanism for creating and modifying user roles (automated workstations) depending on their job responsibilities. Roles are formed by the system administrator when registering new system users. Each role is assigned a user menu and an accessible set of objects, and these, in turn, are assigned a named set of access rights to each object. Users of the information system have limited access to modules and system functions. The rights and privileges of system users are controlled by the system administrator. The system administrator will also control the system settings. The main functions of this subsystem are:
  • Registration of system users;
  • Creating system roles;
  • Distribution of access rights to users and roles in the system;
  • Configuring system parameters;
  • Setting up a system for monitoring user actions and auditing.
Information and reference service (Personal account) This subsystem implements the functions necessary to provide comprehensive information to clients on the services provided to them.

  • Video telephony services;
  • IP telephony services;
  • IP-TV services.
The system implements flexible configuration of tariff plans, which allows you to charge the provided service according to various criteria (time, quantity, direction, threshold and others). The system implements functions that allow making calculations during the inter-settlement period, recalculating accruals, and charging “discarded” statistics, i.e. re-charge data after eliminating charging errors or failures. The system implements support for automatic management of services on switching equipment and notification of clients when the threshold value of their personal accounts and debt is reached. Notification can be carried out in voice or electronic (e-mail) mode. Collection and preliminary processing of information This subsystem is designed to collect primary information about the services provided to customers from telecommunication devices, clear it and then transmit it for charging. The information collection and preliminary processing subsystem supports the following types of information sources:
  • Information received from telecommunications equipment via the NetFlow protocol;
  • Information received in the form of CDR format files;
  • Information received in the form of test files.
The subsystem implements flexible configuration for various sources of information, which allows, in particular, to receive and process data transmitted via various versions of the NetFlow protocol, receive and process data received in the form of CDR files of various formats, as well as receive and process data from structured text files. Telecommunications Equipment Management This subsystem implements the functions necessary to manage various telecommunications equipment in the context of providing services, in particular:
