The Caboteria / Tech Web / OpenSourceBilling (27 Aug 2007, TobyCabot)
I once worked for a company (Kenan Systems) that wrote billing software for telcos, and I'm a big fan of Free Software and Open Source software. So I've been casually keeping a list of the open source billing packages that I know about.

ISPD - http://ispd.eburg.com/ - the first open source billing system that I know of. Largely written in C. Seems to have run out of steam, or perhaps (but unlikely) it does something useful so it's stable.

freeside - http://www.sisd.com/freeside/ - I installed this one in the fall of 2000 and it basically works. It's written in perl and uses a SQL database back end. The billing functionality is extremely basic: it doesn't do usage, or even store the bills that it has generated. It is under development, though, and there's traffic on the mailing lists.

ISFree - http://isfree.terrabox.com/ - found in March 2001. Looks to be written in C, with web GUI and uses postgres as a back end.

ipac-ng - an IP accounting package which uses ipchains or iptables to gather info about who's doing what and feed it into a pgsql database. http://sourceforge.net/projects/ipac-ng/

ipmeter - IP mediation. http://www.ipmeter.com/

WebHosting Billing System - http://www.tolchz.net/programming/ PHP on the front, Mysql on the back. Looks pretty basic.

CBMS - PHP front end, mysql back end. Written by voxel.net to run their own business, looks like it's morphed into a commercial service bureau as well. Seems to be more feature-full than ISPD, probably comparable to freeside. http://www.voxel.net/projects/cbms/

Jet - Python, Zope. Looks as if the "rating" engine is open source, and they sell add-ons. https://jet.obsidian.com.au/os/

cwISPy - looks like php, dunno much else about it. - http://www.cwispy.com/cwISPy/

RechnungsZentrale V2 - another very basic php/mysql package. - http://www.nfec.de/projekte/rz2.php4

jbilling - a Java/JEE application - http://www.jbilling.com/
