THOR© (Total Hot Rater)
THOR is a commercial strength, telco-grade and highly scalable rules-based Rating Engine designed to deliver monetization for any network usage on a large scale in a real-time, near real-time or batch transaction basis with superior validation, rating and assurance capabilities.
Based upon UNIX open architecture and rules-based configuration capabilities, THOR is optimized to rate any event from any source within any time constraint. Ancillary systems can interface to THOR such that input and output data may seamlessly interoperate between systems. THOR also permits billing systems to operate sovereign to data preparation cycles, which in turn permits reduced complexities when establishing new service offerings, addressing increased scalability, and more. The quick implementation and deployment capabilities coupled with the rules-based configuration capabilities further enhance the significance. THOR has been proven worldwide to increase revenues, reduce costs and increase operational efficiencies. The most common rating aspects include duration-based, events-based, subscription or fixed-based, volume-based (incoming), volume-based (outgoing) and volume-based (total). As with all TSS products, THOR maintains data integrity and security, complies with industry and client standards, and provides data error and deviation audits as well as monitoring and alerts.
