Vedicis and FTS to deliver joint Policy Control & Charging Solution
PCC solution enables operators to manage data explosion, monetize data services in real-time and improve customer experience
Broadband Traffic Management Congress | November 15, 2011 | London, UK: FTS, a global provider of billing, customer care and policy control solutions for communications and content service providers, and Vedicis, the leading software editor in broadband DPI and policy enforcement solutions, announced today that they are partnering to deliver a complete Policy Control & Charging (PCC) solution.
Vedicis will provide its policy enforcement (PCEF) solution, whilst FTS will deliver its Leap™ Policy Control, an online/offline charging and PCRF solution. The combined solution will be an integrated end-to-end Policy Control & Charging offering for mobile and fixed line operators.
As data usage continues to rise service providers’ marketing departments are being pushed to come up with innovative pricing plans that can be implemented quickly to help manage data volumes, whilst simultaneously increasing revenues and improving the customer experience. The combined FTS and Vedicis PCC solution enables the billing and network departments to keep up to speed with marketing requests, with pre-integrated charging, policy management and enforcement and subscribers’ data. Dynamic policies can be implemented to correctly identify and classify content such as over the top applications (OTT), video or gaming, ensuring that the data is correctly handled, prioritized and charged for.
The new partnership provides a single PCC solution: operators purchase a pre-integrated package that offers simplicity, fast integration, deployment and operational set-up, along with cost advantages when compared to integrating separate PCEF, PCRF and charging solutions. As a result, operators gain a competitive edge with fast, simple implementation of new services and improved ROI.
“This is a great partnership for FTS. We have always worked hard to help marketing teams launch new services quickly, without back-office being a bottleneck, and integration with Vedicis will add further simplicity and fast deployment capabilities,” said Amos Sivan, CEO, FTS. “This combined PCC offering will enable operators to better respond to the choices their customers make with personalized packages.”
“The combination of FTS’ Leap Policy Control and our Vedicis Policy Enforcement solution presents an exciting new offering for fixed and mobile operators,” said Théodore Martin Martin, Vedicis CEO. “At Vedicis, we focus on delivering flexible and efficient open traffic management solutions to speed new service implementation and control IP data growth. Together, FTS and Vedicis can now help carriers combine policy enforcement, the policy rules engine, real-time usage-based charging and the subscribers’ data to create differentiated services quickly and simply.”
The joint Policy Control & Charging Solution from Vedicis and FTS will be able to help operators resolve a number of issues that are currently affecting the sector, including:
– Enabling innovative cross-selling plans – an example of which may be to provide quota-based credits for the data used on premium services
– Traffic Management – the PCC solution can implement dynamic policy rules for bandwidth fair usage and congestion mitigation according to the user’s profile, his financial status, the network status or even the roaming status
– Providing tiered services – such as offering pricing packages based on a choice of access speed, download/upload quotas, QoS prioritization, applications, devices, location or time of day/week according to the consumer’s preference
Both FTS and Vedicis will be participating at the Global Broadband Traffic Management conference in London (15th-17th November 2011). Vedicis will be discussing the latest business cases for Traffic Management Solutions to ensure operators have full flexibility for their initiatives (15:15pm, 17th November) and FTS will be participating in a panel discussion on Policy 2.0 enabled services and how they can deliver incremental revenues for operators (12:40pm, 16th November).
