Openet is teaming with IBM to promote telecom and media service provider solutions. This multi-faceted partnership includes an array of initiatives, the first of which is IBM’s service provider cloud solution initiative. Openet is a key partner to IBM in this project, providing software components that enable service providers to monetize and report against the delivery of cloud services to their customers as part of the IBM cloud services solution architecture.??
Along with IBM’s cloud initiative, the collaboration includes Openet’s utilization of IBM software and hardware capabilities to deploy solutions directly to service providers, and a variety of joint marketing activities.??
Openet has also been certified as a vendor within IBM’s Service Provider Delivery Environment (SPDE). This certification validates that Openet interoperates with key elements of the IBM telecom software solution stack. SPDE enables operators to bring new, innovative, revenue-generating multimedia, data and content services to market faster, easier and at a minimal cost.
Openet and IBM have been working together for more than a year, completing technology integration and certifications, and creating joint marketing programs.
