With the exponential growth in mobile data traffic, effective policy management is increasingly important today, particularly with customer expectations always growing. Policy management solutions enable operators to maximize revenues, eliminate revenue leakage and deter fraud while still delivering a personalized service experience.
Openet provides an innovative Subscriber Optimization Software to communication and media service providers enabling them to control, monetize and increase visibility into the usage of services and network resources. Openet’s (News - Alert) software-based solutions allow operators to create new business models, simplify and personalize the subscriber experience, and maximize the value of network resources in the process.
Openet’s Subscriber Optimization Software delivers this through Policy and Charging Control for intelligent network control and monetization; and Subscriber Data Management for business intelligence and personalized services enablement.
According to Andrea Kavanagh, marketing communications director at Openet, as next-generation technologies, such as LTE (News - Alert) and cloud computing, continue to gain increasing popularity and strain network resources, an in-depth understanding of solutions like policy management are becoming essential.
Policy Management from Openet determines entitlement to access specific content and applications, how they can be accessed, when they can be accessed and the rules regarding location for all users. Service providers gain the flexibility to create both pre-defined, or static, and dynamic policy rules so they can meet the business rules of their network operators and their customers’ needs.
Openet offers a solution to help network operators achieve congestion management to ensure they can meet the demands of the users while also delivering satisfaction. The RAN Congestion Manager is a topology aware tool with a GIS front-end. This tool provides congestion forecast on cell-sites and locations and includes a simulation tool based on the “what if” analysis.
The Openet Policy Manager is based on IP-based network optimization use cases and proactively pushes policy controls to issues as they arise. The Policy Manager includes test framework to test the impact of rule changes and decisions to manage capacity to keep aware of the subscriber and network state. The Policy Manager also keeps abreast of all activity, profile, device, user history and usage limits.
