Executive Summary
Stratecast has taken a deep dive into the changing communications marketplace, and evaluated the role of billing and policy management within the communications service provider (CSP) business support system (BSS) operations. Stratecast views billing and policy management as inextricably linked; and, as such, launched a major study of over global suppliers that offer a variety of billing, policy management, or combined solutions. The results of this work include a report concentrated on policy management, and a multi-part report series focused on the end-to-end billing marketplace, as detailed below:

This report provides a market share analysis for the Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) and Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF) segments. It also delivers a five-year market forecast for each. The report identifies a number of solution suppliers that address these business functions, in addition to providing company-level profiles for a selection of them.
