Openet, the leading provider of Transactional Intelligence for the world’s largest and most innovative network service providers, announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation's (TMC®) INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine has named Openet’s Content Anywhere solution as a recipient of its 2009 Product of the Year Award.
This award, given for product innovation, illustrates Openet’s traction in the video space. The latest in a series of cutting-edge solutions for cable, Content Anywhere enables multichannel video operators to protect the subscription and advertising-based business model while creating new revenue opportunities by coordinating content entitlement among cable operators, service providers and programmers. This enables subscribers to view the same premium content online and on mobile devices as they are entitled to view on their home television sets.
“In the past, if consumers wanted to see a certain program, they were forced to watch it when it aired on television. Today, consumers play by their own rules, refusing to be tied down to one device at a specific time,” said Niall Norton, CEO of Openet. “Openet has answered that need with our Content Anywhere solution. As a result, today’s subscribers can access all television programming whenever they want it—and on whatever device is most convenient for them—while cable operators maximize their profit potential.”
“INTERNET TELEPHONY is proud to grant Openet a 2009 Product of the Year Award for their Content Anywhere Solution. Openet has proven its commitment to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “We’re happy to recognize and honor Openet for their development of IP communications technology. We look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future.”
A complete list of Product of the Year winners is published in the February 2010 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine (itmag.com). INTERNET TELEPHONY has been the authority in IP communication since 1998™.
