The market for policy-based, data services has grown to the point where all mobile operators are demanding high-value services that scale right out of the box. This has been especially challenging for mobile operators that cannot afford to match the expenditures of Tier 1 mobile operators but want to compete with them by deploying innovative, revenue generating services that can attract and retain new mobile subscribers. Procera has worked closely with Openet to engineer a joint solution called Revenue Express that is capable of giving service providers of all sizes a suite of market proven services that can be deployed in weeks, allows for flexible service configurability, and readily interoperates with existing OSS/BSS systems. Our teams have pre-tested and hardened key integration points resulting in Revenue Express solutions being able to support millions of mobile network subscribers with a demonstrable ROI.
Both Procera and Openet have taken great effort to ensure that Revenue Express components function as the core 3GPP network Policy and Charging Control (PCC) components – providing both the Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) and the Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF). As a key part of this ecosystem, Procera’s IPE is the policy enforcement point and provides key analytics that help operators tweak Revenue Express services to optimize revenue growth. With Procera’s industry leading traffic classification precision, it makes sure that policies implemented on Openet’s PCRF will be enforced accurately to maximize service revenues and deliver on customer satisfaction.
Developing personalized network data services is a key component of mobile operators’ business plans worldwide. Procera and Openet’s mobile service provider customers will significantly benefit from this joint business and technology relationship, giving them a cost and resource efficient policy platform that delivers a significant competitive edge.
