Collaboration with Openet Enables One of the Leading Mobile Operators in APAC to Optimize its Network Experience
FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 21, 2013 — Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global intelligent policy enforcement company, today announced that the one of the fastest growing mobile operators in APAC has selected Procera’s PacketLogic™ solutions combined with Openet Policy Manager technology to enhance its network service experience.
The partnership between Procera and Openet enables the operator to optimize mobile data network performance for all subscribers, and to control network costs. Procera and Openet are working together worldwide to help operators meet the needs of mobile subscribers. As more consumers begin to rely on their smartphones for everyday tasks, policy solutions deliver an improved experience by enabling them to monitor data consumption in real-time, set personal alerts, and purchase additional data entitlement.
Through this Policy Management implementation, Openet and Procera have made it possible for the operator to experience significant data ARPU and subscriber growth in the APAC region.
"The shift to LTE provides network operators an opportunity to offer high-value personalized services to mobile broadband consumers," said James Brear, president and CEO at Procera. "Our work in APAC with Openet leverages both companies' leading edge technology and scalability to deliver high quality mobile broadband services to their subscribers."
"The rollout of LTE is driving investments in policy and charging control systems to facilitate the launch of value based pricing and to prepare for more complex network services such as service passes for data roaming," said Niall Norton, CEO at Openet. "Our work with Procera for this LTE operator proves the importance of these investments for business growth and improved customer satisfaction."
