T-Mobile Netherlands Chooses Openet Evolved Charging for Mobile Services

Openet, a provider of transaction management software for network operators, was selected by T-Mobile Netherlands to provide a charging platform for mobile services.

Among the benefits found with the Openet Evolved Charging technology will be more customer engagement, real-time control and price plan innovations, the companies explained in a statement.

“Network operators are rapidly evolving how mobile services (data, voice and messaging) are delivered and paid for,” Niall Norton, CEO of Openet, said in a statement. “Openet’s real-time charging solution offers unrivalled flexibility to enable new pricing models and service innovation, and we look forward to working with T-Mobile to offer optimal choices for its subscribers.”

Also, Openet Evolved Charging offers a flexible offer catalog. That lets T-Mobile Netherlands – which has more than 4.5 million customers – “quickly define and launch dynamic pricing models, innovative device plans and support comprehensive combinations of services for its pre-paid and post-paid subscribers,” the statement adds.

Openet has also been in the news recently with the announcement that its Intelligent Network (IN) replacement solution is now available.

"Legacy systems are designed for yesterday's business models; their limitations directly affect operators' ability to quickly and effectively deploy innovative and valuable services that engage customers," Christopher Hoover, Openet’s vice president for marketing, said in a recent statement carried by MobilityTechzone. "To achieve strategic goals and to take advantage of growth opportunities, operators need flexible high performance infrastructure that meets the demands of a rapidly changing and unpredictable market landscape."

In addition, Openet also reported how it has demonstrated scalable and linear policy solutions at a Tier One operator. This is important in part because top tier operators are carriers that have a direct connection to the Internet, as well as data and voice networks, according to online sources.

In addition, the news bodes well for Openet’s future with Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) requirements and Software-Defined network (SDN) functions, MobilityTechzone reported.
