Openet Sells RA Solution to Nextel Brazil

Irish mediation vendor Openet has announced the deployment of its revenue assurance solution in Nextel Brazil. Read the press release here.

Openet’s revenue assurance application is built upon their own Fusionworks mediation software. This raises some interesting questions about the boundaries of what can be described as revenue assurance, and how to measure the value it adds. If Openet’s RA application is doing no more than assuring mediation, it begs a question of why this is not considered intrinsic to mediation, instead of being treated as an add-on to it. If it assures more than mediation, how much more, and where are the handovers to other assurance solutions?
