DigitalRoute Launches Policy and Charging Control Solution

Mar 22, 2011, 09:00 ET from DigitalRoute

STOCKHOLM, March 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DigitalRoute announced today the availability of the PolicyZone(TM) policy and charging control solution.

The massive uptake of mobile data services is far from compensating voice revenue in the developed markets and monetizing data is the prime focus for leading communication service providers. Effective policy control is the key for service providers that are looking to profitably manage the explosive growth in data traffic while creating a profitable services segmentation offering. Ensuring fair usage and allocating bandwidth based on a combination of subscriber and service criteria is essential but challenging in a highly volatile multi-vendor environment shaped by constant need to update market offerings, introduce new services and technology.

PolicyZone from DigitalRoute is a Policy and Charging Control solution for 3GPP and non-3GPP environments. The pre-packaged solution is built on the same platform as the DigitalRoute carrier-grade MediationZone(R).

"DigitalRoute and our delivery partners have accumulated extensive experience in delivering bill shock prevention and customer centric policy and charging control solutions based on MediationZone. PolicyZone builds on this experience," said Jan Karlsson, CEO at DigitalRoute

PolicyZone is designed to address a wide range of use cases to enable and control services including:

    - Application-specific traffic steering
    - Time-limited bandwidth boost
    - Billshock prevention
    - Manage core- and access network congestion
    - Online Charging
    - Parental control
    - Roaming Access control
    - Subscriber tier and location based quality of service

"Policy and Charging Control is an important piece in the revenue puzzle but is not the only one. Service providers need flexible solutions to manage massive amounts of data to run an ever increasing number of business critical processes which includes understanding the end-user experience from an end-to-end perspective. We provide these solutions on one technical platform," added Jan Karlsson.
