Infonetics highlights that "Convergent charging represents a way for operators to enable convergence without necessarily needing to do a billing forklift project." Telcordia considers that convergence is more than prepaid and postpaid, but over five types of convergence are emerging; Mobile/Fixed, Pre/Postpaid, 2G/3G/4G, GSM/CDMA, and TV. By implementing convergent charging capabilities, operators can accelerate time to market, profitability and an interactive customer experience.
