VADSA Taps Openet real-time Charging and Policy Solutions to launch digital MVNO


Openet’s solutions to be implemented as part of MDS Global’s, VNOnDemand solution for Mexican service provider

Openet has announced that Mexican-based MVNE, Valor Agregado Digital S.A. de C.V. (“VADSA”) is implementing Openet’s policy control and real-time charging systems. Openet will be part of the MDS Global MVNO solution, VNOnDemand, which will provide an end to end MVNE platform.

VADSA has recently signed a Mobile Wholesale Agreement with Altán Redes, Mexico’s first 700Mhz 4G-LTE Mobile Network and will later this year launch an MVNO called Exis Telecom, which will offer a real-time, wholly digital customer experience with content-based, application-based, and traditional voice and data packages.

As a fully digital MVNE, VADSA will overcome the challenges of targeting the consumer and business market segments via a self-serve customer engagement portal, avoiding traditional pre-paid solutions or separate B2C/B2B stacks.

The full MVNO project will be primed by MDS Global with Openet providing their award-winning charging and policy systems. It will initially support the Exis MVNO but is being implemented as a full MVNE platform to, subsequently, support other MVNOs in the region.

The solution will benefit the entire VADSA organisation, including marketing and service design, sales and on-boarding, customer and revenue management, operations, network management, and, most importantly, the end customers.

Natalia Saenz, President of VADSA, “We are about to embark on an exciting project which will offer new and differentiated services to the people of Mexico. MDS and Openet will provide us with the capabilities to successfully launch and operate a new MVNO on time and to budget. Jose Luis Sanchez, our CEO, is taking VADSA into a generation of telcos that need to focus on the customer. This customer-centric solution ensures we are future-proofed for today and tomorrow’s projects.”

MDS Global’s CEO, Gary Bunney, “This announcement shows that, increasingly, digital service providers want to work with companies who are forward-thinking and can provide integrated solutions that deliver a competitive edge. MDS Global is very pleased to work with innovative partners like Openet in delivering end to end solutions for digital companies like VADSA.”

Vicente Pava, Openet VP for the Americas, “Innovative telcos like VADSA want the benefits of working with agile companies with turn-key solutions. Openet looks forward to offering VADSA, together with MDS Global, a seamless experience that will allow the launch of many new MVNOs in Mexico.”
