Openet, a leader in the supply of Digital BSS, today announced the availability of Openet Policy Controller (OPC) for 5G.
The new solution is cloud-native and microservices-based, and has been built for CICD (continuous integration continuous delivery) to allow a succession of new services to evolve and be deployed rapidly. OPC enables the development, launch and control of more services in a shorter timescale than was ever previously possible and with lower network impact. The CICD approach employed by Openet allows the service provider to deploy new policy controls for any new network slices they may be trialing.
As well as enabling time to market in minutes, OPC is closely linked to charging systems to enable new 5G monetization models to be developed and implemented. Guaranteeing Quality of Service (QoS) can only be achieved if network slices are tightly coupled with Policy and Charging, said Openet. In turn, this provides the ability to monetise service slices with rapidly evolving pricing models. OPC is integrated with Openet’s Evolved Charging system and the open API architecture enables integration with monetisation systems from any vendor.
