DUBLIN, Ireland – October 18th, 2017Openet, a global leader in the supply of real-time BSS (business support systems) and customer engagement systems, announced that Niall Norton, Openet CEO, has been included the Global Telecom Business Power 100 List for 2107.

The Power 100 List includes many of the most influential people in telecoms, content and internet companies. Openet’s entry in the list highlights Norton’s ambition to lead Openet on ‘path to disruption’ to rid the BSS market of ‘big vendor lock-in’. Global Telecoms Business noted Openet’s investment in automation, cloud technologies and virtualisation to ensure that they can deliver on their promise of disruption.

Niall Norton, Openet CEO, “It’s good to be included on this list and it’s a reflection on the work that Openet is doing with our customers. We’re working to enable them to quickly realise the opportunities that changes in the telecoms market are bringing. Service providers have two choices. They can accept the status quo and continue to be phone companies with declining margins selling commoditised products, or they can embrace change and go after the bigger prizes on offer in the digital economy. This means change and it means disruption. It was good to see Global Telecoms Business acknowledge the work that Openet is doing to change the game in the BSS and telecoms software market”.
