Orange’s Polish arm has selected Irish firm Openet to upgrade its array of business support systems (BSS) and customer engagement solutions to include virtualised policy management and charging solutions.

Orange Polska will use Openet’s Policy Manager and Evolved Charging Solutions tools in order to boost agility and response times for its customers, according to Krzysztof Kozlowski, platforms and convergent network development director.

Orange is Poland’s biggest mobile operator, competing with the likes of T-Mobile, Play, and Plus, and also offers fixed lines, content services and banking services. This means it needs it needs a more agile BSS in place, he added.

“We need to be able to compete and win in the digital marketplace. This means that we must have the agility to be able to react very quickly and cost-effectively to any new market opportunities. Having policy and charging with pre-packaged use cases gives us the edge we need to best serve our customers today, but also to be able to move quickly to roll out new services in the future.”

Openet provides solutions and services aimed at support digital upgrades for operators, including real-time and virtualised BSS, tracking tools, and monetisation solutions. It works with the likes of Sprint, BT, Telia, Vodafone and Eir, according to its website.

Paul Saunders, regional VP at Openet: “Providing Orange Poland with integrated policy and charging goes beyond providing technology. The use cases that we provide will enable quick wins and new revenue streams with new offers. We’re also working with Accenture to help them leverage Openet’s solutions to deliver additional value to Orange Poland.”
