Flash Networks announced that ".. it has successfully completed interoperability testing of its Harmony Mobile Internet Services Gateway with the Alcatel-Lucent 5780 Dynamic Services Controller (DSC), [covered here] a 3GPP policy charging and rules function (PCRF) platform"
As Alcatel-Lucent has a number of video optimization products and partnerships (here, here and here) , I guess this is a result of a specific project - a joint customer asking for integration of the two technologies.
"By enforcing policies from the Alcatel-Lucent 5780 DSC, Flash Networks’ Harmony Gateway enables:
- Mobile data and video optimization based on subscriber profiles, service plans, and cell congestion
- Policy-based and configurable content control for safe network browsing, according to user profile and time of day
- End-to-end quality of experience management, actionable analytics, and monetization opportunities"
