Sandvine has completed interoperability testing of its Policy Traffic Switch (PTS) with Alcatel Lucent, Intracom Holdings, Redknee, and Tekelec’s Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) platforms. In January, Sandvine and Openet demonstrated operability via a joint customer win. Earlier this quarter, Sandvine had announced interoperability with Bridgewater Systems’ PCRF.
Sandvine’s policy enforcement capabilities, combined with these policy management platforms, are consistent with Sandvine’s support of 3GPP standards-based end-to-end solutions for operators worldwide. The PCRF’s function of provisioning the subscriber entitlements is complemented by Sandvine’s subscriber, application, location, and device awareness for fine granularity policy decisions, actions and reporting.
Sandvine’s solutions detect network conditions that trigger policies within the network to help service providers enhance subscribers’ Internet experience.
