Nokia has extended its partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deploy its cloud-native convergent charging solution for communications service providers (CSPs).

As a containerised network function (CNF) on AWS, Nokia Converged Charging (NCC) is said to provide continuous availability, which supports the high frequency, low-latency demands of an always-on, convergent charging system.

According to Nokia, this will enable CSPs to tap new revenue streams from 5G capabilities, such as differentiated pricing, network slicing, and various product offerings.
