The new version of risk management and revenue assurance software for operators was presented this week in Cascais (Portugal), during the annual WeDo event. It aims for operators to have information in real time to support the new business models that are expected to emerge with 5G.
RAID 8.1 incorporates new data processing capabilities in real time and greater integration of big data by accepting new file formats and compression modes. It also has APIs for external systems to access RAID and uninterrupted automated risk controls, and new modules based on Machine Learning (ML) to implement faster business assurance functions, among others. The version can be contracted as a platform in the cloud or in the client's datacenter (on premise).
