Moroccan operator INWI is implementing convergent policy control across its operations using a Policy Manager solution from Openet.
The PCC solution will enable INWI to deploy new services to subscribers and create new revenue streams to maximise network capacity investments.
INWI has integrated Openet’s Policy Manager with its advanced Balance Manager and Offer Catalogue solution, allowing it to monetise and shorten time-to-market for innovative new use cases.
These will include the offer of ‘one day’ mobile data service passes and real-time data upsell notifications to its 13 million subscribers. These services will ensure new levels of offer transparency and Balance Management to maximise customer quality of experience, control local and roaming traffic and reduce bill shock.
Openet’s Policy Manager enables INWI to deliver differentiated and innovative data services to consumers and business customers across its mobile networks with possible extension to other access technologies. This includes the shaping of network traffic according to the type of service being accessed and the time of day. INWI can enforce user terms and conditions and bandwidth limits in real-time maximising the amount of available capacity for other users.
Bernard Buyat, CTO, INWI, said: “Our partnership with Openet ensures we offer a high quality and differentiated service to our customers and ensure they remain firmly in control of their service usage. INWI remains completely committed to offering our customers innovation and transparency, with the ability to rapidly react to new opportunities. Openet provides this flexibility.”
“Our work with INWI reflects the importance of next generation BSS in safeguarding customer quality of experience and the creation of new revenue streams,” said Niall Norton, CEO, Openet. “Having access to flexible best of breed systems will play a pivotal role in operators monetising new lucrative 4G services and driving customer retention.”
