Leading Canadian Service Provider SaskTel Drives New Revenue Opportunities with Openet and ENABIL Solutions



    Company to Increase and Improve Wireless Offerings with Openet's
FusionWorks Active Charge and Active Rate

    DUBLIN, IRELAND, April 2 /CNW/ - Openet, a provider of solutions to
extract increased value from diverse service provider networks, and ENABIL
Solutions, a provider of customer care and billing solutions, today announced
an agreement with SaskTel, a provincial Crown Corporation and the leading full
service communications company in Saskatchewan. Through the agreement, SaskTel
will implement Openet's FusionWorks Charging and FusionWorks Real-time Rating
to enhance its ability to deliver next-generation services to its 425,000+
customers.

    "For close to 100 years, SaskTel has been providing reliable
communications services to communities across Saskatchewan, many of which are
rural areas where wireless communications have become an essential adjunct to
traditional wireline services," said Robert Watson, SaskTel President and CEO.
"Openet will allow us to engage in rapid and seamless deployment of new
services, enhancing SaskTel's stature as a trusted provider of enhanced
business and personal communications services."

    SaskTel has excelled at delivering both traditional and new services to
every corner of the province, including new multimedia and messaging services.
Through this implementation, SaskTel will be able to more efficiently deliver
and garner revenue for those services, while also accelerating profitable
delivery of new services such as advanced wireless text and video.

    "With traditional wireline revenues holding steady, service providers are
eagerly searching for ways to create new revenue without heavy cost,
infrastructure burden or service interruption," said Apollo Guy, VP Sales and
Alliances, Americas for Openet. "Leading service providers such as SaskTel are
bridging the gap with Openet's best of breed solutions to gain the quickest
traction possible via new and dynamic service offerings without latency or
dramatic costs."
