[Update 29: More Details on NSN PCS-5000] PCRF - DPI Compatibility Matrix

Similarly to the difficulties in obtaining information on Nokia Siemens Networks' Flexi-NG (see story here), their PCRF product is also not documented on the company's web site.

However, I was able to get some information on the product - directly from NSN and with the help of Ray Le Maistre, from LightReading.

The chart below summarizes the features of the PCS-5000 product. As for its DPI support, NSN says:

"The PCS-5000 is fully integrated with Nokia Siemens Networks Flexi GGSN [here] .. It has also been successfully integrated with 3rd party GGSN, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and BRAS products, and operators existing back-end systems ... PCS-5000-based policy control solution allows the operator to apply fair use policies which restore the control of network resources to the operator and enable them to manage those resources more efficiently .. The PCS-5000 provides dynamic and service/application-based Policy Control which allows operators to optimize the service experience".

My PCRF-DPI compatibility table (accessible from the link above the post) already reflects the DPI vendors which are supported. NSN also stated that "PCS5000 Policy server can interoperate with any vendors DPI via Gx-interface (both fixed and mobile environment)".
