Item description for Introduction to Iptv Billing, Event Recording, Usage Rating, Content License Fees And Advertising Revenues by Lawrence Harte...

Download DescriptionThis book explains how companies bill for IPTV video, telephone, data, and information services. Billing and customer care for IPTV systems convert the measured amounts of services (bytes of digital information transmitted or information services provided) within an Internet Protocol (IP) data network into the money that will be received by the service provider. The billing systems used in IPTV systems can vary from modified television billing systems to custom integrated systems that allow real-time (near instant) activation and prepayment of services. The authors have interviewed and worked with hundreds of service provider companies and billing system developers to discover the ways IPTV billing systems operate. You will learn the language and terms used in the setup and operation of IPTV billing systems along with the format and important information parts of event detail billing records. The popular billing industry standards used to track IPTV services include IPDR, AMA, CIBER, TAP and XML are covered. Discussed are the ways that charges can be settled between service providers who allow visitors to use their systems. Included is a basic introduction to how services can be instantly provided and how billing is performed for access to information services. You will learn how mediation systems adapt usage events into billing records that can be gathered and managed by billing systems, how IPTV systems identify specific users and how to guide billing records to the appropriate customer account. The rating processes used for different services provided by IPTV are explained. You will discover what a typical usage transaction looks like, what elements are needed to create a usage record, how to deal with un-ratable records and rating usage from service partners. The process of invoicing is covered including billing cycles, invoice creation and posting to customer accounts. You will learn how it is possible to manage multiple user accounts on the same IPTV set top box (STB). Taxation issues are discussed including jurisdiction and other regulations along with universal service funds. Service rates and discounts are described including volume discounting, multi-tier discounting, bundled rate plans and service adjustments. You will learn how IPTV systems permit customers to self provision services and the common payment options that may be available to the customer.
