Mediation

N-Mediator is a system that collects call detail records (CDRs) from multiple network elements in different networks (e.g., WCDMA, LTE, and IMS), processes them, and distributes the formatted CDRs to billing systems in real time or batch mode. It also applies business rules, such as Filtration, Aggregation, and Correlation. In addition, the system complies with 3GPP standards and supports Diameter (Rf), RADIUS, GTP’ (Gz), xCSC protocols for interfacing with various network elements.

Key Functions

Collection

  • Collecting raw usage records/CDRs by communicating with different network elements via different protocols

Parser

Distribution

  • Sending the formatted CDRs to the billing or downstream applications
