Elitecore Releases Latest PCRF Version

News

Elitecore Technologies has made available the latest version of its Policy Management offering, NetVertex plus in v6.4. New features include Enterprise Policy, Policy Analytics and RADIUS support for Wi-Fi Offload.

Dhaval Vora, VP, Product Management Elitecore Technologies, said, “Elitecore has bridged the Policy solutions gap for operators with this release. NetVertex’s Enterprise Policy feature will enable them to address growingenterprise demand for Data Services Control within or outside the organization while Policy Analytics will help design and launch subscriber-specific promotions & plans based on various inputs of revenue, usage and traffic feeds reports to PCRF.”

Some of the plans that can be initiated by Policy Analytics include Social media-only services, Device specific plans, city-wise usage, access network usage, students or Government sector plans and more. The Enterprise Policy feature comes with a service selection portal allowing Enterprises to self-manage their employees’ data consumption for usage, time & access controls, consistent QoS, Bandwidth-on-Demand, hierarchy-based personalization and more, effectively transferring controls from operators to enterprises.

Commenting on NetVertex’s RADIUS support for Wi-Fi Offload, Dhaval adds, “Apart from already existing support for diameter, Elitecore’s NetVertex solution will now provide native support for Wi-Fi Offload through a single PCRF deployment. Operators no longer need to procure a separate Diameter Translation Agent to talk to PCRF for Wi-Fi offload scenario which leads to CAPEX and OPEX savings along with less integration requirements.”

According to ABI Research, the global Policy market is worth $1.4 billion in 2012. The launch of Elitecore’s latest Policy version comes on the heels of increased operator demand for Policy solutions to evolve in order to handle the growing complexity of usage monitoring, new pricing strategies and account management.
