Is my PCRF doing what I need?

Last month our team spent a few days in Berlin at the Policy Control convention, networking with customers and conference attendees while explaining some of the finer points of Amdocs offering. It was clear at the event that people viewed policy control as a proven, integral component in any service providers network that enables new HD services, monetizes data plans, and provides truly differentiated data experiences for customers. But what they had trouble understanding was how they could ensure the policies they put in place are having the desired positive effects they intended. Over the course of the conference, several […]  More >>

Dedicated VNF Management – Why it’s Performance-critical for PCRF

Recently at the NFV World Congress in San Jose, there was a noticeable shift in conversations about implementing management and orchestration (MANO) as service providers tackle the gritty issues involved in operationalizing NFV. In particular, VNF management (VNFM) was a hot topic for many, with discussions centered around how to manage the wide range of VNFs once projects move from the lab and into production. There are two basic philosophies for VNFM under the MANO architecture. One model utilizes generic VNF managers that are completely agnostic to the VNFs they oversee, which offers complete flexibility to manage any VNF. The […]  More >>

Turning quality into currency

As LTE services such as HD streaming video and voice over LTE (VoLTE) go mainstream, demand for the crystal-clear HD experience is changing the definition of service quality. Providing guaranteed quality of service (QoS) to manage jitter, speed and delay is only part of it. Maintaining a consistently high level of performance even under heavy loads and delivering five or even six nines availability are increasingly critical to monetizing service quality in the new LTE landscape.  More >>

Policy control in the fast lane

To get the most out of LTE, you need a strategic policy controller that allows you to maximize revenue and offer new services.   More >>

Are you ready for VoLTE?

VoLTE has to meet – and exceed – traditional voice quality and services to really make its mark, which is where policy control becomes mandatory  More >>
