SPIT Watch: iPad, IPO & M&A

June 8, 2010 - Openet

Openet Telecom Ltd. has just turned up the heat in the Service Provider Information Technology (SPIT) sector with an engagement at AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) that puts it at the heart of the US carrier's iPad operations.

Irish mediation, charging, and policy control specialist Openet has made something of a coup by landing a deal to be the back-office smarts supporting AT&T's 3G iPad service. (See Bye, Bye Unlimited iPad Data Plan.)
Openet has provided its Subscriber Initiated Provisioning and Service Pass solutions, which include its Balance Manager, Convergent Mediation, and Profile Manager products, to AT&T, which can use the systems to charge for its data services by time period or the volume of data used, capabilities that are now critical to the operator's mobile data strategy. (See Capping the Data Gusher, AT&T Intros Mobile Data Caps, Openet Unveils Profile Manager, and Openet Tackles Service Control.)
The AT&T deal makes Openet an even hotter property in the Service Provider Information Technology (SPIT) sector, where it has been signing Tier 1 deals.
