Volubill and Sandvine announced an integrated PCRF-DPI solution today: "The fully tested and pre-integrated solution will allow operators to rapidly put in place a real-time policy enforcement and policy management engine"
The release mentions names few customers, but in a strange phrasing for a joint release announcing a joint solution: "The announcement builds on the successful deployments of Volubill’s online charging system at various Orange subsidiaries and at Movistar Venezuela [see "Venezuela’s Movistar Deploys Volubill PCRF" - here], to support prepaid charging models". I guess the reader has to figure out by himself what was meant to be said here.
The "DPI-PCRF Matrix" (accessible from the top banner) was updated to reflect the new solution. It is the first time I see such integration announced by Volubill.
See "Volubill and Sandvine Team Up to Deliver Fully Tested and Pre-Integrated Real-Time Policy Management and Policy Enforcement Engine for Communications Service Providers" - here.
"Volubill’s CONTROL IT™ policy management solution has been tested and pre-integrated with Sandvine’s Policy Traffic Switch policy control and enforcement solution to meet 3GPP Diameter Gx and 3GPP Diameter Gy protocol requirements".
