Openet’s products are built for 5G. They are designed to enable insight, monetisation and control of 5G services. Flexible policy and control, and monetisation rules can be applied across different services and network slices. They also support policy and charging in the core and also at the 5G network edge. This agility enables operators to monetise different features of the network (e.g. QoS, latency) and open up new opportunities such as B2B, IoT, smart cities and industry 4.0. This can help operators secure a central position in the 5G value chain.
WHY OPENET FOR 5G
As well as being 5G standards compliant, Openet products are cloud-native (available on public and private cloud). They are built on microservices, use Kubernetes and SBA, and are proven to support DevOps in CI/CD (continuous integration / continuous development) environments. Openet also provide a data bridge between 4G and 5G to enable charging & policy on hybrid networks.
5G VALUE PLANE: MANAGING AND MONETISING THE 5G NETWORK TO DELIVER THE FULL POTENTIAL OF 5G
5G goes way beyond providing connectivity. With 5G, the customer experience derived from advances in network attributes, including quality of service, can be managed and monetised as never before. This enables service providers to apply the best network performance for the most valuable use cases. These could be controlling a robotic manufacturing line in a 5G powered smart factory or ensuring that a 5G gaming offer delivers the experience that your customers want. As the experience delivered by 5G networks is increasingly becoming part of service providers’ 5G offers, there is a need for a bridge between the IT and business functions of a service provider and the 5G network. As Openet is part of Amdocs we have combined products that provide this real-time and dynamic bridge between telco IT and the 5G network. At the core of the 5G Value Plane is the Openet 5G charging and policy systems and the Amdocs Service Catalog – CatalogONE. Openet’s products provide the integration point to the 5G network and Amdocs CatalogONE provides the integration point to the business / IT universe. Having this foundation for 5G management and monetisation also opens up new opportunities to update adjacent solutions – such as Digital customer experience management on the business side and network optimisation on the network side. This opens up the opportunity to monetise the 5G network by enabling higher value, 5G network driven use cases and offers that realise the potential of 5G.

Manage 3G/4G/5G Hybrid Networks
Openet systems enable support for 3G /4G and 5G hybrid networks.
Using 5G to grow revenues from the enterprise market is key for many service providers. Network slicing enables service providers to provide virtual networks with their own characteristics such as latency and quality of service. A Capgemini survey of industrial businesses showed that 79% of enterprises would expect to pay a premium for guaranteed 5G quality of service. Openet’s policy and charging enables service providers to manage 5G QoS, provide enterprise service level agreements, and have different charging rules based on QoS delivered. This is just one example of the agility that 5G policy and charging needs to provide. The move to innovate and market specialist urLLC edge based use cases also needs to be enabled by 5G policy and charging. The systems must have the built-in fundamental design that permits them to be deployed on centralised or regional datacentres or cloud instances, whilst in the same deployment equally supporting completely integrated edge instantiations to support the latency requirements of 5G Edge.
