as an order management and provisioning engine for interfacing
with a downstream BSS system.

Brainroots can develop interfaces between disparate systems
including real-time interface with IN platform and BSS, interface
with Payment Gateways, and interface with the legacy accounts
Interface with Vitria For a Japanese client,
Brainroots built a real-time interface between Vitria and the
downstream BSS for exchanging provisioning information.
Interface with credit card Payment Gateways
Brainroots has built interfaces with a number of Payment Gateways
for real-time customer care transaction.
Interface with SMS-C Brainroots has implemented
a real-time interface between the SMS-C and BSS for a large
provider in Australia. This was done to enable pre-paid and
real-time SMS billing.
Interface with Ericsson IN platform and Ericsson MMSC
A leading operator in New Zealand required real-time
billing of pre-paid MMS. For this, a solution was deployed for
real-time rating from the Ericsson MMSC to the BSS. The rated
events were exported in real-time from the BSS to the IN platform
which would be able to deduct pre-paid balances in real-time.
