Openet, the most innovative provider of Subscriber Optimisation Software to tier one communications and media service providers, today announces that one of South Africa’s leading fixed-line and fixed-broadband telecom providers has selected Openet to deploy an integrated policy management and convergent charging solution, with its comprehensive Policy and Charging Control (PCC), architecture. This architecture enables the operator’s mobile division to create and monetise new personalised services and maximise the value of the operator’s new 3G network.

Openet was selected both to deploy next generation policy management and to replace the legacy charging system previously in place. In selecting Openet, this service provider recognised the Company as having developed the industry’s most robust, innovative and extensible policy and charging software and architecture. Included in the solution are Openet’s Policy Manager product, a fully compliant 3GPP IMS Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) and Openet’s Convergent Charging Product, the backbone of a 3GPP Online Charging System (OCS).

With the deployment, Openet is enabling new personalised mobile services and business models. The solution will be deployed on both voice and data networks, and offers a variety of charging options to maximise revenue from every subscriber. Additionally, the operator can now dynamically allocate bandwidth and quality of service for existing and future networks.

Openet was also chosen based on its ability to integrate easily with other hardware and software components of the new network architecture. This differentiator separates Openet from other providers in the space, and helps pave the way for convergence across all of the provider’s voice and data networks for pre- and post-paid subscribers.

Openet’s award winning policy and charging solutions are deployed on the networks of 41 service providers around the world.

“This operator is transitioning from a popular provider of fixed voice and data services to a bleeding-edge network operator,” said Michael Manzo, CMO of Openet. “To meet current and future market demands, the operator clearly recognised the need for a new network architecture, and with it, the ability to personalise services and control network performance and service delivery. This results in happier, more loyal customers and a commensurate rise in revenue.”
