Openet and Procera Collaborate on Policy Enforcement for Mobile Operators

Procera Networks and Openet, which specializes in real-time transaction management software and services, introduced an end-to-end turnkey Policy Control and Charging (PCC) solution for mobile operators.


The new Revenue Expres solution combines Intelligent Policy Enforcement and analytics coupled with Policy Management functionality.  It delivers the full PCC components defined by 3GPP standards.  Openet's software performs the Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) and Procera's platform provides the analytics and Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF).

The joint offering includes pre-packaged functionality designed to reduce cost of ownership and address time to market challenges faced mobile operators.  One of several options available, for example, offers a Service Pass for customers who have exhausted their existing data limit, such as 500 MB of extra data usage for a number of days at a small additional fee. In this case, providing subscribers with simple transparent data purchase options that they understand not only reduces customer service calls, and costs, but also encourages them to experiment with data usage, creating new customer segments that often choose to purchase additional data.

"Policy and charging control is essential for operators innovating data pricing and services,” said Openet’s vice president of Marketing, Christopher Hoover. “Procera’s Internet intelligence expertise and shared vision for delivering value to mobile operators makes them an ideal partner with whom to expand our existing suite of Openet Express solutions.”  

"Our policy work with Openet leverages both companies’ industry expertise and makes it possible for mobile operators to quickly meet common business requirements with reduced complexity and ease of operation,” said James Brear, president and CEO of Procera. "We look forward to continuing our relationship with Openet and finding new ways to bring our policy enforcement and analytics technology to all operators."
