DUBLIN -- Openet, the most innovative provider of Subscriber Optimisation Software to tier one communications and media service providers, today announces that a leading Netherlands operator has deployed Openet’s Policy and Charging Controls (PCC) architecture and fully compliant 3GPP PCRF Policy Manager platform to control bandwidth and implement network policies for millions of subscribers. The operator has also selected Openet’s complementary solutions, Fair Usage and Tiered Service Controls, which enable the carrier to offer more flexible service plan options and improve its control over subscriber traffic. All Openet solutions were deployed in tandem with Cisco’s (formerly Starent Networks’) GGSN.
As data use skyrockets due to bandwidth-intensive services and applications offered by both mobile network operators and third-party content providers, subscribers have come to expect fast and unlimited network access via flat-rated data plans. This model has become decreasingly sustainable; the power of mobile devices and their data usage grows, while operator costs soar and average revenue per user (ARPU) remains flat.
