Openet, the most innovative provider of Subscriber Optimization Software to tier one communications and media service providers, announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC), a global, integrated media company, has named Openet’s Service Passes solution as a recipient of the 2010 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award.
Openet’s Service Passes allow operators to effectively deploy real-time billing models, providing a wider array of data plan options to customers. For example, using the solution, a wireless carrier can address the concerns of a user unlikely to commit to a contract by offering one-time or recurring data access for a limited period of time, volume of data, number of events or for specific applications. Supporting multiple payment types, Service Passes provide real-time service authorization, access and session management to the carrier.In 2010, the solution was an integral part of the Openet iPad monetization architecture built specifically for the device’s U.S operator.
“The Service Passes solution and its real-time orientation speaks to what operators need to effectively manage and monetize the robust, media-rich mobile devices of today’s wireless ecosystem,” said Niall Norton, CEO of Openet. “Openet created Service Passes as a method for operators to future proof their revenue-generating interactions with subscribers, allowing the easy rollout of any number of upcoming innovative services. By enabling carriers and subscribers to customize the billing relationship in this way, Openet’s solution is a perfect example of how to make the most of every subscriber while catering to their individual needs.”
Openet’s Service Passes, along with the other 2010 Product of the Year winners, are published in the February 2011 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
“I am pleased to announce Openet as a Product of the Year Award winner. The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY have verified that the Company’s Service Passes solution displays quality and innovation while addressing real needs in the marketplace,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I would like to congratulate Openet for its commitment to advancing IP communication technologies.”
