This 1-day training course looks at the process of billing for IP and Applications. Internet Protocol (IP), the world's dominant data communications protocol, does not fit with traditional ways of billing. The classic 'time and distance' paradigm is not applicable to bursty traffic. Nevertheless, IP must be billed if carriers are to stay (or, in some cases, become) profitable.

This one day course examines how this goal can be achieved. It starts by looking at the IP chain of services necessary to deliver IP-based services to customers before looking at major characteristics of IP. This is not an in-depth IP course but some aspects of IP are essential to understand how to bill IP.

The course examines both fixed and mobile IP Billing as well as a major IP application (from the carriers viewpoint ) – Voice over IP.

This 1-day course forms part of our 5-day Billing program which offers a comprehensive introduction to the main types of billing systems and services available in modern telecommunications. The other courses in this program are Telecoms Billing Introduction, Interconnect Billing, and Billing for GSM, GPRS and 3G Mobile Systems. Each course can be taken individually or as a 5 day program.
