Is the data already rated or raw? If it is already rated and you know
the service it is associated to, just add it to the Charges table.
Emerald will pick them up on the next invoice. You can find details
on the charges table at:
If the data is raw, I would recommend purchasing either Emerald
Enterprise or the EmerNet/Netflow add-on. This will give you
acess to the gbe rating engine which can then be setup to
rate your data once imported and then create the charges for you.
If you need info on this, please contact our sales/support group
and they can help you.
