Openet, a global leader in real-time transaction management software and services, announced the availability of its Intelligent Network (IN) replacement solution. The new solution, which is the first of its kind in the industry will allow operators to profit from the rise of high speed data by evolving legacy platforms to provide flexibility and real-time capabilities, a feature much needed by communications service providers (CSPs) today.
Openet's converged online charging systems, which is 3GPP compliant,allows CSPs to prepare for a data centric world, reduce cost and increase efficiency by replacing the existing legacy IN platforms. The new solution would also enable dynamic offers by empowering operators to quickly create, develop and present customized data packages to customers in real-time. In addition, the new solution can be integrated with existing billing systems.
"The speed and data-led services that advanced networks like LTE present are a challenge to legacy IN charging and billing infrastructures, originally designed for simple voice transactions. These systems are limited in their ability to provide the flexibility, real-time capability and support for rapid innovation that operators require in an increasingly data-centric, fast-paced world."
“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,” said Openet marketing vice president Christopher Hoover. “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.”
