Amdocs officially launched its PCC product, based on the acquired Bridgewater Systems products.
Several products were added to the offering, under a new "Network Control" segment including 3G-LTE products (on is the Policy Controller) and "Multi-Access" products.
The press release focuses on the integrated solution - "A unified hardware and software system, the Amdocs Data Experience Solution (see previous posts - here and here) pre-integrates a policy control and charging engine with product catalog and subscriber management functions, and the necessary business support, network interfaces, and pre-configured business processes, to deliver specific, out-of-the-box market offers".
" .. It leverages the market leading network and policy control assets of Bridgewater Systems, including standards-based interfaces and multi-vendor interoperability for ease of deployment into 3G and LTE network environments. Productized APIs (application programming interfaces) enable a single point of integration into provisioning, notification, billing and self-care environments".
The PCRF-DPI matrix (here) was updated to reflect the above, keeping the previous interoperability relations the BWS product had with Allot, Arbor, Cisco and Sandvine.
