On the Scenario-based Billing in the 5G Era
This book is a specialized in comprehensively introducing the new generation of billing systems in the 5G era. As the base of the digital world, “5G communication network” plays an essential and fundamental role in promoting the digital transformation of society. As an important part of the communication network, the “5G Billing System” provides a strong support for the operation of various 5G services.
The book is divided into seven chapters of “Birth and Development of Billing”, “New Scenarios Supported by 5G Billing”, “New Model of 5G Billing”, “Architecture of 5G Billing System”, “5G Billing Application Technology”, “Operations of 5G Billing System” and “5G Billing Scenario Lab”. By analyzing the different billing scenarios of various industries empowered by 5G, AsiaInfo’s practices have been refined and summarized to discuss the realization of 5G value.
This book is suitable for ICT practitioners and can also be used as a reference book for undergraduates and postgraduates of related majors such as communications and computer science in colleges and universities. It is hoped that the publication of this book will drive the healthy development of the 5G industry along with the efforts of industry colleagues.
As “an enabler of digital transformation of large enterprises”, AsiaInfo puts product development and technological innovation as the top priority of corporate development by adhering to the craftsmanship spirit of being very diligent and careful all day long, and devotes itself to help boost the efficiency of the informatization and digitization of government and enterprise customers. “5G Technology Collection” is written by AsiaInfo based on its own technology accumulation, product advantages and successful cases, aiming to propose new reflection and future prospects of new scenarios, new theories and new practices in the era of 5G. The Collection not only conducts in-depth thinking and research on technologies and services such as AI, big data, network construction, intelligent operations, DevOps, and scenario-based billing, and provides a comprehensive summary and interpretation of AsiaInfo’s 5G innovation achievements and scientific research experience, but explores the technological innovation iteration, digital transformation of enterprise, and social intelligent development in the future.

Exhibit: Preface of the Collection
On June 6, 2019, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology officially issued 5G licenses to China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom and China Broadcast Network. This means that China has officially started the journey of commercial use of 5G.
Over the past two years, China’s installed capacity of 5G base stations accounted for more than two-thirds of the world’s total capacity, and the “full coverage” of 5G in cities above prefecture-level has been achieved; nearly 400 million of 5G terminal connections has been established, accounting for 80% of the world’s total; the number of 5G patents of China exceeds the sum of the United States and Japan, which is far ahead in the world; there are tens of thousands of 5G application demonstration projects in the industrial field, economic field and social field...
Over the past two years, the highly anticipated 5G, together with new technologies such as AI, cloud computing, big data, and the Internet of Things, has changed personal lives, fueled industry changes, accelerated economic transformation, and promoted social development, which is on the way of building a multi-dimensional world of “AIoT”.
5G leads to an iteration of personal lifestyle. Better communication experience, ubiquitous AR/VR, intelligent and safe autonomous driving, etc. have all become reality with the advent of 5G, bringing a more free, abundant and healthy life experience to humans.
5G innovates the industries. Benefiting from the increase in speed, improvement of time-lag, and increase in the capacity of access equipment, the innovation triggered by 5G will expand from the communications industry to accelerate digital transformation and make the support of new technologies increasing obviously, and constant emergence of new business models and the upgrading of industries will make various industries thoroughly remould themselves.
5G gives rise to a multi-dimensional leap. C-end consumption goes hand in hand with B-end industrial transformation. “4G changes life, 5G changes society”. In the 5G era, ordinary consumers will enjoy more convenience thanks to another upgrade of information technology, and the digital and intelligent transformation of various industries will be truly realized. The two are complementing and boosting each other to elevate the transformation of the entire society to a new level.
The past two years has witnessed a rapid progress of 5G in China, and also witnessed the breakthroughs achieved by AsiaInfo in strategic transformation and upgrading. As a leading domestic software and service provider and integrated cloud-network management service provider, AsiaInfo closely sticks to the development of the times and actively embraces advanced technologies such as 5G, cloud computing, big data, AI, and the IoT, actively carries out the R&D and evolution of creative technological products, and jointly builds an ecosystem of 5G+X with industry customers and partners in order to make proactive contributions to 5G’s empower to various industries, digital intelligent transformation of enterprises, and sustainable development of the industry.
