Society is increasingly connected, not only in media we consume but also in the ways we interact with devices, manage resources, and engage with networks.

Consumers send messages to their oven to set the temperature. Wearable gadgets automatically send fitness statistics to the cloud. Vacuum robots respond to a smartphone and begin cleaning the house. Automatic door lock systems, garden watering systems, and connected thermostats are all available today.

To serve the expectations of the modern connected subscriber, operators must offer plans and services that extend across access networks as well as across devices, enabling seamless cross device management, consistent quality of experience, and control of children’s access and permissions.

To realize the potential of these opportunities, operators need systems that seamlessly manage the delivery, charging, and coordination of services between devices, across networks, and among subscribers. Openet is delivering these solutions today [see solutions].
