Openet announce completion of funding round to drive growth
October 9, 2019 - Openet
Niall Norton, CEO, Openet, “The success of Openet is driving additional investment which we welcome. In the last two years, we set out to change the operator / vendor model. We wanted a much more synergistic approach where our customers and Openet would jointly strive for success and share the same ambitions. Our approach is more partnership focused than traditional outdated vendor / customer model. To do this involved change, some of which involved re-structuring, but now we’re getting serious traction and sales success as a result of the changes and investment we made.”
So far in 2019 Openet has announced wins at customers such as Telkomsel, Bell, SaskTel, VADSA and a tier 1 US operator. Norton continued, “As well as the wins we’ve made public, there’s 10 other operator wins that we’ve still to announce. Several of these deals are with some of the leading mobile operators in the world and one is for a customer implementing Openet software on AWS public cloud. We’ve also launched policy and charging systems for 5G which is helping drive demand. In addition, our open, API driven approach to systems has resulted in an increasing number of new partnerships for Openet. These include Samsung, Casa Systems, Metaswitch, RADCOM and Allot where Openet 5G policy and charging is part of the 5G Core, as well as new partnerships with NTT Group, Salesforce, MDS Global and 6D Technologies”.
