DUBLIN, Ireland – June 28, 2010 – Openet announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) has named the Partner Service Controls solution as a recipient of the 2010 NGN Leadership Award presented by its publication, NGN Magazine.
Openet was nominated for its Partner Service Controls solution which addresses key challenges faced by operators, third-party providers and subscribers: creating mutually beneficial and acceptable ways of accessing the sought-after applications and services enabled by provider networks. Using this solution, operators can establish revenue-generating partnerships with third-party providers of content, applications, services and devices, subsidizing access and creating price tiers to ensure an enhanced – and profitable – end-user experience.
“Undoubtedly, today’s consumer sees application reliability and availability as reflective of the overall quality of their service provider, and today’s operators need to continually deliver high performance to retain subscribers,” said Niall Norton, CEO of Openet. “The Partner Service Controls solution aids operator/developer business models, and provides real-time network transparency. This solution helps structure the ‘wild west’ of application development and monetization, and ensure network performance.”
The Second Annual NGN Leadership Award recognizes the growth, evolution and distinction between the applications and services designed for next generation networks and the enabling technologies that make them possible.
“Openet has been recognized for their exceptional work in advancing NGN services and technologies. The Partner Service Controls solution has proven it’s exceptional, and its innovation has contributed to the transformation of the industry,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Congratulations to the entire team at Openet and I look forward to more innovations in the coming year.”
The 2010 NGN Leadership Award winners can be found in the May/June 2010 issue of NGN Magazine.
