Today the world is on the eve of a new technological revolution in wireless networks. The expected launch of the fifth generation of cellular communication (fifth generation or 5G) is closely related to the development of no less than the breakthrough phenomenon of recent years – the Internet of Things (IoT). Both of these concepts can dramatically change business and society, providing each with unique opportunities for interaction between smart devices. So what is the future of the 5G & IoT?

Built-in SIM-cards are already used in IoT gadgets and in tablets, but smartphone manufacturers are still wary of the novelty. IHS’s ¹ analysts claim that by 2019 top-3 smartphone manufacturers will start producing their latest models in an eSIM version. However, second and third-tier manufacturers will be pioneers in this field.  According to IHS, the amount of eSIM will increase from 108.9 million in 2016 to 986 million by 2021. So what is the trend? And how does it work?

The introduction of a billing system is a complex process, trying to avoid any errors which may lead to future failures in customer service and financial losses. Therefore, it is desirable that the developers offer users assistance in billing deployment process. Sometimes operators consider it more profitable to independently implement the billing since such work allows the company’s engineers to better understand the system with which they will later work for many years.

Traditionally, operators offer three services – home Internet, paid access to TV channels and content streaming services and fixed telephony. However, the research agency Reportlinker¹ has studied a new trend – convergent tariffs, which include mobile communications in the package in addition to conventional services.

Analytical agency Juniper Research studied the market for automotive telematics and found out that in 2017 more than 150,000 cars will be sold with V2V (vehicle-to-vehicle) communications systems built in. This technology is not just about traditional connected cars that only consume data from the network. Also, it is about those machines – M2M, that can communicate with each other.

The business model of interactive digital television built on the basis of OTT technology offers individuals the facility of real-time audio and video delivery from content aggregators without the participation and control of ISP providers. Over the Top (OTT) is a technology in which content is delivered to any user connected to the Internet directly, via the HTTP protocol.

A new technological revolution is coming: in the coming months and years all devices will become “smart” and synchronized with the network. But the Internet of things opens new opportunities for cybercriminals. The growth rate of IoT security issues is expected to significantly accelerate in 2017. By the end of the decade synchronizing with the network will become commonplace, and smart devices will fill the shelves of stores by 2020. The result will be an increased demand for new forms of cybersecurity.

The quality of any system is determined by the quality of its architecture and technologies used. Most often, it is in this area that the main problems of self-written solutions lie, however, in the billing series there are design errors. This is what you should pay attention to when evaluating the architecture of a system and the system from inside.

We at JeraSoft have been developing billing solutions for communications operators for 12 years already, and more than a dozen of implementations have taken place over this period. An efficient and accurate billing system is necessary for most businesses that offer subscription-based services: Internet service providers, telecom providers (wholesale VoIP, SMS, OTT, MVNO, Retail VoIP, Mobile VoIP) and IoT providers, data centers, content service providers, cloud services and others.
