NetCracker’s Policy Enforcement provides a high-performance, high-availability, carrier-grade platform with cost-effective linear scalability that acts as a centralized point for traffic identification, network congestion management, mitigation of malicious traffic, and policy enforcement.
Pre-integrated with NetCracker’s Policy Management, the offering helps Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to execute policy control and enforcement in a centralized way. In addition, Policy Enforcement also allows CSPs to make policy decisions locally, without needing to interact with other decision-making systems unless additional information is required.
Policy Enforcement includes the following functional capabilities:
Accurate network usage management by subscriber, application, time, location, access network, device type, realm, etc.
DPI-based Network Policy Control
Multi-access technology support (2-4G, WiMAX, xDSL, FTTx, DOCSIS)
Full compliance with 3GPP, support of other protocols, such as RADIUS, SNMP, etc.
Key benefits include:
Minimized risk of network congestion or failure in the network through the use of comprehensive bandwidth management techniques
Reduced network OpEx and CapEx through optimization of network capacity utilization
Ensured service quality through rule-based network capacity management and resource (re)allocation
