I guess I should have always been more specific. One of the things I  
was looking for in the billing system is to do prepaid-type service,  
even for wholesale.

I guess I could always get a Radius-compatible billing package, but  
which one integrates with Yate to create user accounts or profiles as  
well as to do pre/post rating in real time and pre/post billing.

Thanks again,
