Openet, the leading provider of Transactional Intelligence for the world’s largest and most innovative network service providers, announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) has recognized the Content Anywhere solution as a 2009 Cable.TMCnet.com Product of the Year.
This award, given for product innovation, comes in the same year that Openet formally entered the cable space. A key offering in Openet’s cable portfolio, Content Anywhere enables multi-channel video providers (cable TV, direct broadcast satellite and IPTV) to coordinate content entitlement among service providers and programmers, allowing subscribers to view content anytime, anywhere and on any device. Providing real-time session control across multiple networks, the solution authorizes entitlement by validating the subscriber’s account plan.
“Openet is committed to providing our customers with innovative tools that promise to not only meet market demands, but exceed customer expectations,” said Niall Norton, CEO at Openet. “An operator’s relationship with a customer is typically at the household level with minimal visibility into individual users. With Content Anywhere, operators can establish a one-to-one relationship with customers and offer a highly personalized and customized experience.”
Openet’s Content Anywhere solution was driven by demand from cable providers. As consumers increasingly turn towards computers and mobile devices to view TV programs and movies, multichannel video providers are facing a threat to their core video businesses. With bandwidth capacity rapidly increasing, video content provided by over-the-top (OTT) providers is growing. It is critical for operators to meet consumer demand for online content while preserving the dual subscription and advertising business models that have been key revenue drivers for both operators and programmers. To balance these needs, the Content Anywhere solution allows operators to protect their subscription model, create new revenue opportunities and meet consumer content demand on any screen.
“Cable.TMCnet.com is pleased to grant a 2009 Product of the Year Award to Openet for their Content Anywhere solution. Openet has proven it is committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO at TMC. “We’re proud to honor Openet’s accomplishments in the advancement of the cable technology industry.”
The 1st Annual Cable.TMCnet.com Product of the Year Award winners will be featured on the Cable.TMCnet.com Web site and published in its e-newsletter.
