BroadHop has announced the results from a recent survey it conducted in conjunction with Heavy Reading, of approximately 100 telecom industry experts and executives, regarding the emerging policy environment and the platform capabilities they view as most important.

Asked to select up to three equally weighted responses – over 61 percent of respondents felt applying policies at the level of the individual subscriber was the greatest priority, while 52 percent said the option to apply trigger billing and charging actions was critical.

Forty seven percent indicated that next gen policy management platforms need to be flexible enough to deploy not only a fixed set of target use cases but also those not yet defined, while 22 percent noted the ability to apply policies in different types of networks was an important capability.

“The results of this survey clearly indicate that service providers are looking to the policy management community to deliver new enabling capabilities beyond bandwidth or congestion management and fair use,” said Dan Geiger, VP of marketing, BroadHop, in a statement.
