Based upon Openet’s FusionWorks™ Policy Manager and Convergent Mediation products, Partner Service Controls enables operators to create new, multidirectional business models by partnering with third-party content, application and device manufacturers to deliver customer solutions which bundle access and ensure preferential network speed and quality. This allows an operator’s commercial partners to optimize their individual customers’ user experience while generating new revenue opportunities.

“With content, services and applications expanding to third party providers, service providers need ways to develop new business models and increase revenue streams,” said Niall Norton, Openet CEO. “Openet has always responded to market challenges with innovative solutions, and by allowing operators to monetize third party content while providing optimal subscriber access, Partner Service Controls is no exception.” The TMC Labs Innovation Award honors products that have demonstrated raw innovation, unique features, and significant contributions toward improving communications technology. The TMC Labs Innovation Award is not granted to the best-selling products, but instead to those demonstrating a significant contribution to the industry.
