Huawei has launched the tech industry's first 5G SA network-based monetization solution. Otherwise known as the Huawei Convergent Billing System (CBS) R20, the service has already been deployed over the STC Kuwait 5G SA's network.

According to The Fast Mode, Huawei has been granted dedicated access in Kuwait, a feature offered to enterprises that have guaranteed Services Level Agreements (SLAs). The report claimed that Huawei's network-based monetization solution called Huawei Convergent Billing System (CBS) R20 has been implemented in the country.

Huawei was said to have partnered with companies in Kuwait to expand its 5G service business models thereby developing the CBS 20. The said service would support more than 1,000 billing factors from different dimensions. It would also encompass 100 common 5G service combos.

The company claimed that the CBS R20 follows the billing services-based architecture and interface of the 3GPP. The seamless upgrade was referred to be advantageous for operators in providing fast internet services and supports NSA and 5G SA networks.

The service was also revealed to generate extra revenue for the Huawei partners by opening more than 300 application programming interfaces (APIs). Furthermore, the report claimed that the service also promotes virtualization and containerization. These services were explained to lower OPEX through the use of centralized management and operational automation.

The president of Huawei's Software Business Unit Rockred Zhang claimed that the monetization of all 5G levels promotes a unified billing system. The feature is required for all its users including households and enterprises.

In other news, Business Mirror reported that Huawei has also expanded its support at the global level by partnering with Philippine telecommunications companies in preserving Philippine rainforests.

The said project was named as Huawei Rainforest Connection Phase One, a program launched by Huawei Technologies Philippines Inc. It would be implemented with the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (DENR) and a Philippine telecommunications company Smart Communications.
