Openet, a global leader of real-time BSS (business support systems), today announced that its Network Selection Intelligence solution has been deployed by a leading Southern European wireless, wireline, broadband and cable TV operator. The operator selected Openet’s end-to-end solution, based on the ANDSF standard, to provide intelligent Wi-Fi management and offload capabilities to optimize the mobile data experience for its customers while dramatically reducing network costs.
This operator has turned to Wi-Fi management techniques as a way of cost effectively improving the mobile data experience for its 1.9 million customers. Openet’s Network Selection Intelligence solution can seamlessly integrate with existing network elements and applications to significantly reduce costs from interconnection fees, and use of a less expensive access technology. The solution will also ensure all customers benefit from the best available network capacity and enjoy an optimal mobile data user experience.
Openet’s Network Selection Intelligence solution enables the operator to handle management and offload decisions on a subscriber-by-subscriber basis in real-time. This enables the operator to create a consistent experience based on common policy and charging controls combined with user profiles and service information. The Openet solution enables not only intelligent offload decisions, but also easy access authentication, preferred network prioritization (e.g. home, office), and comprehensive analytics dashboards.
“Intelligent Wi-Fi management is an extremely cost effective method to addressing increasing demand for network bandwidth,” said Joe Hogan, CTO, Openet. “Mobile users ultimately aren’t interested in which networks deliver their service; they simply wish to continue enjoying an uninterrupted and high quality user session. Our network selection intelligence solution delivers a seamless, transparent offload experience for a fraction of the cost of traditional mobile networks.”
