jBilling Telco Edition Is the First Open Source Solution Designed to Meet Telco Needs


Ottawa, Ontario, October 16, 2012 — jBilling, the world's leading open source billing solution, today announced the near-term availability of jBilling Telco Edition, a new version of its widely used billing software specifically built for the telecommunications industry. Available as Software-as-a-Service or downloadable code, jBilling Telco Edition is the first open source solution designed to meet the particular billing needs of telecom companies.

"Telcos have had very few options when it comes to billing. Up until now, their choices have been confined to expensive, proprietary systems, or solutions with limited functionality," said Emiliano Conde, Founder of jBilling. "With jBilling Telco Edition, telecom companies will have a true open source option that is flexible, robust, and can accommodate complex, converged billing with ease."


jBilling has served the telecom industry for more than a decade, and its solutions are used by trusted telecom companies worldwide. However, jBilling Telco Edition marks the first version of the software that will offer new, unique features designed to meet telco specifications. These features include:

  • True cloud-based mediation that dynamically allocates resources for parallel processing of call detail records (CDRs)
  • Pre-paid functionality that is compatible with the Diameter protocol
  • Advanced rating with pricing models and rate cards
  • Pre-configured plug-ins and preferences based on typical telecom implementations

jBilling Telco Edition can also accommodate a wide variety of billing scenarios no matter how complex, including subscriptions, pre-paid billing and accrued credits, as well as metered, volume, and graduated usage. Moreover, telcos can implement jBilling for a wide range of services—such as voice, mobile, Internet, and more—and customize the system to fit their business needs.

"We're excited to provide telecom companies with an open source solution created just for them, and in typical jBilling fashion, we're using the latest technology to build the best possible solution," Conde said. "We're confident that many of jBilling Teclo Edition's features, such as the Hadoop-based cloud mediation module, are going to be trend-setters for the industry."
