Comptel, Procera Team on Policy Control, Charging

By Craig Galbraith Comments

Comptel Corp. has wrapped interoperability testing with Procera Networks on a joint, real-time policy control and charging solution, which consists of Comptel Policy Control and Procera’s PacketLogic Subscriber Manager and PacketLogic Real-Time Enforcement (PRE).

The companies say the solution enables communications service providers (CSPs) to offer, manage and monetise advanced data services, while optimizing network usage, improving the overall customer experience.

“This collaboration has enhanced Comptel’s and Procera’s ability to support CSPs challenged by the global data explosion," said Antti Koskela, CTO, Comptel. “The integrated, real-time policy control and charging solution offers the flexibility and data granularity operators require to manage service usage easily and optimize their networks efficiently. Not only that, it leaves CSPs well-positioned to enhance the customer experience and capitalize on service monetization and other business opportunities."

Comptel says its Policy Control gives CSPs what they need to transform their technology investments into profitable new business, helping them combine sophisticated charging rules for multi-vendor 3G, LTE, WiMAX, fixed and cable networks with the real-time application of network and business policy. It supports a number of use cases including subscription redirection, fair usage, time-, location- and URL-based policy, parental controls and roaming.

The fully integrated solution, the companies say, provides faster time-to-market; flexibility in supported industry-standard interfaces for policy control via Gx; and an extensible offering with comprehensive tools that go beyond control and monetisation of data servers.
