At this week’s Policy Control and Real-Time Charging Conference in the Netherlands, Tekelec is touting the newest version of its Policy Server it says enables mobile operators to offer subscribers enhanced over-the-top (OTT) applications, advanced shared-data plans and location-based LTE services.

The updated Policy Server release, available in June, provides:? 

>> Shared data plans that offer groups of users pool-usage quotas across multiple subscribers and devices during the billing cycle. Service providers also can define multiple thresholds for managing subscribers’ speeds, access and notifications.?
>> LTE service options in available service areas authorize such location-based services as higher service tiers, casual usage plans or trial offers by detecting when subscribers enter and move within LTE coverage areas.??
>> Enhanced OTT applications offer quality-of-service rules, including location-based service enhancements, and launch consumer-friendly plans based on popular applications. The latest Diameter interfaces including Sd for Deep Packet Inspection and Content Optimization solutions, deliver faster time-to-market for new services and improved interoperability, Tekelec notes.
>> A richer set of tools in Tekelec’s rules engine let service providers add exceptions and exclusions to existing policies, including service tier, device and time. ??
>> Pre-defined policy tables segment subscribers by service tier, device, application usage and other parameters, providing a mechanism to modify policy rules to launch and evolve new services. ?
 
The Tekelec Policy Server resides on the company’s EAGLE XG middleware, the engine of the New Diameter Network that provides reliable subscriber database scalability and high message-processing rates. So far, the Policy Server is deployed in 55 service provider networks, including 42 Tier One providers, in 33 countries.?
