That’s why it’s invaluable to have respected, experienced industry veterans, such as Per, who brings a compelling dual perspective, having served operator and vendor side. Per completely understands the critical and disruptive role of digital BSS in helping operators effectively monetise 5G.”
“I am delighted and feel privileged to have been invited to join the Openet board of executives,” said Per Borgklint, Openet board member. “Openet has had great successes in recent years in demonstrating the value of agile, flexible digital BSS in service providers’ transformation journeys.

Openet provides Digital BSS to enable service providers to create new revenues from digital services, improve customer engagement and be ready for the opportunities from 5G. Our solutions enable service providers to be more agile, innovative and enjoy a faster time to value.
From monetising content and data services over 4G to enabling innovative enterprise IoT offers over 5G, Openet’s Digital BSS provides a fast and agile alternative to the large legacy companies whose track record of over-charging and under delivering has resulted in high failure rates of large scale transformation projects.
Since its foundation in 1999, Openet has been at the forefront of telecoms software development and innovation. Our success is personified by the many long-term relationships it has fostered with the largest, most progressive, and demanding operators across the globe. For more information visit www.openet.com
