Joint solution to address network congestion issues and enhance the subscriber experience
Boston, MA and Dublin, Ireland (December 7, 2010) - Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leading supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile broadband service providers worldwide and Openet, the most innovative provider of Subscriber Optimization Software to tier one communications and media service providers, announced today their joint policy management solution. To date, the companies have achieved successful integration and interoperability testing between Allot Service Gateway, acting as Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF), and Openet’s Policy Manager, acting as Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF). This joint solution enables mobile operators to optimize the monetization of their mobile broadband networks.
The integrated PCEF-PCRF solution, based on 3GPP Policy and Charging Control (PCC) standards and policy enforcement standards for mobile networks, is scalable to fit any network. It is designed to enable intelligent service delivery by improving bandwidth management through the dynamic control and enforcement of network resources with real-time policies based on service, subscriber or usage. The joint solution will also enable service providers to offer tiered and personalized subscriber service packages that are highly tailored to the individual subscriber’s needs and price points.
“This alliance allows Allot and Openet to enable operators to provide even more highly personalized services,” said Apollo Guy, global VP of business and market development for Openet. “With this joint solution, sophisticated policy capabilities will help solve network congestion issues and enhance the subscriber experience. This is the ultimate goal of all operators, and this partnership provides industry-leading policy capabilities to address their most pressing needs.”
Due to the great interest shown in this joint solution, Allot and Openet will be conducting a joint webinar on Tuesday, December 14 at 1pm EST. During this webinar entitled “Managing the unmanageable: monetizing and controlling OTT applications”, the Allot-Openet solution will be presented in greater detail, including multiple ways in which it enables operators to monetize their networks, with a focus on online content-based charging of OTT applications.
“As the rising tide of over the top applications, particularly video, continue to overwhelm mobile networks, operators have to be able to implement new business models and maintain profitability,” said Lior Moyal, Allot’s Vice President of Business Development. “This joint Allot-Openet solution provides operators with the real-time intelligence necessary for them to offer their customers true choice in how they use and pay for their Mobile Internet.”
