Redknee Solutions Inc. announced that Oi, a leading mobile operator in Brazil, has successfully trialled Redknee’s suite of virtualized billing, charging and policy management solutions to drive roaming subscriptions and to ensure high quality wireless connectivity for those attending one of the largest sporting events in the world, the 2014 FIFA World Cup. With Redknee’s highly flexible and scalable solution, Oi was able to better monetize its Wi-Fi investment and enhance the customer experience. Redknee’s Wi-Fi Monetization and Offload solution enabled Oi to reduce time to market to launch new services, improve the user experience, and extend revenue streams into new business lines, such as Wi-Fi connectivity at major sporting events. Redknee’s partnership with Oi emphasizes the confidence leading communications service providers (CSPs) have in Redknee’s ability to support their monetization strategies.
With an aggressive timescale, Redknee’s solution was implemented in less than five weeks. Launched as a cloud-based, end-to-end managed solution, Oi benefitted from faster deployment and a low-risk investment strategy to drive monetization and deliver a connected customer experience. With Redknee’s virtualized Wi-Fi Monetization and Offload solution, Oi launched its Tourist Wi-Fi service, enabling Oi to attract international users to its network, and generate new revenue streams.
Part of the Redknee Unified platform, Redknee’s virtualized suite of solutions enables service providers to maximize the value of their network by improving their ability to offload data traffic to Wi-Fi networks, which is a lower-cost alternative to adding expensive network capacity. With Redknee, service providers can use Wi-Fi to create new revenue-generating opportunities and provide a superior service experience to their customers. Available on premise, cloud-based and as a Software-as-a-Service offering, Redknee delivers a complete monetization and subscriber management solution to more than 200 service providers, including some of the largest Tier 1 operators in the world.
