December 8, 2010 - Openet
Allot Communications Ltd , an intelligent IP service optimization solutions provider and Openet, a Subscriber Optimization Software (SOS (News Alert)) provider recently announced a strategic alliance for a joint policy management solution. Allot Communications caters to fixed and mobile broadband service providers worldwide and Openet (News Alert) serves the tier one communications and media service providers.
The companies announced that to date, they achieved successful integration and interoperability testing between Allot Service Gateway (News Alert), acting as Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF), and Openet's Policy Manager, acting as Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF). The companies claimed that the jointly developed integrated PCEF-PCRF solution will enable mobile operators to optimize the monetization of their mobile broadband networks.
The integrated PCEF-PCRF solution is based on 3GPP Policy and Charging Control (PCC) standards and policy enforcement standards for mobile networks.
Scalable to fit any network, the joint solution is designed to enable intelligent service delivery by improving bandwidth management through the dynamic control and enforcement of network resources with real-time policies based on service, subscriber or usage.
The joint solution, according to the partnering companies, will also enable service providers to offer tiered and personalized subscriber service packages that are highly tailored to the individual subscriber's needs and price points.
“This alliance allows Allot (News Alert) and Openet to enable operators to provide even more highly personalized services. With this joint solution, sophisticated policy capabilities will help solve network congestion issues and enhance the subscriber experience. This is the ultimate goal of all operators, and this partnership provides industry-leading policy capabilities to address their most pressing needs,” said Global VP for Openet, Apollo Guy, in a statement.
“As the rising tide of over the top applications, particularly video, continue to overwhelm mobile networks, operators have to be able to implement new business models and maintain profitability. This joint Allot-Openet solution provides operators with the real-time intelligence necessary for them to offer their customers true choice in how they use and pay for their Mobile Internet,” said Allot's Vice President of Business Development.
Last month, Allot Communications announced that Telefonica (News Alert) Brazil chosen the company as a partner for the “Smart” solutions project. In a release, the company said that its solutions, which include real time carrier-class monitoring, reporting and application management solutions, will enable Telefonica’s customers access to optimized network connections for their critical business applications
