Fast and Reliable

No less than 6 different services running on one CGRateS installation. Any of them can be replicated on different number of hosts. Load balancer/failover component included. Using most modern programing concepts like multiprocessor support, asynchronous code execution within microthreads and in-memory databases.

Prepaid and Postpaid

Postpaid handled as prepaid with negative balance allowed, therefore all calls are realtime monitored. Each account supports Concurrent Sessions, Multiple Balances of different types (eg: Monetary, SMS, Internet Traffic), Minutes per Destinations, Volume Discounts, Volume Rates, Inbound Traffic Bonuses, Outbound Destination Bonuses. Thanks to the built-in Scheduler we got Recurrent Topups and Recurrent Debits with a minimum of fuss.
