NICE, France -- Openet, the leading provider of Transactional Intelligence for the world's largest and most innovative network service providers, today announced that Orange France has selected FusionWorks Policy Manager to enable a wide range of solutions designed to deliver better network resource control and new business models based on real time customer profiles.

In the first phase of this deployment, Openet is helping Orange identify out-of-contract use and prevent subscribers from violating the terms of their wireless service contracts by connecting laptops to the mobile network by using their mobile phones as modems. This "tethering prevention" ability will enable Orange to limit bandwidth congestion and reduce revenue loss.

"As mobile devices increase in sophistication, it has become our responsibility to implement cutting-edge network controls that protect our subscribers -- the children from inappropriate content and the adults from exorbitant fees and a bandwidth-congested network from illegal heavy use such as non-contractual modem use -- while also allowing us to extract maximum value from the network," Frederic Marx, operations director, Orange France.
