After we heard about Telekom Austria's DPI deployment (Procera, here) and Video Optimization (Flash Networks, here) - the missing piece, a policy manager, has been announced as well.
Openet announced that "Telekom Austria Group has selected Kapsch CarrierCom to integrate the Openet Policy Manager across six operating companies in Eastern Europe. The deal was primed by Kapsch, and the company will serve as the system integrator and provide regional complimentary services and support for the solution. The six network operators will benefit from spam attack detection and flexible bill shock prevention as well as the implementation of requirements related to roaming regulation. As the leading PCRF (Policy Control and Charging Rules Function) vendor, Openet offers Telekom Austria Group existing use cases cutting down on development effort and time. The deployment of Openet’s Policy Manager product will go live in 2012 and makes it possible for approximately 19 million mobile subscribers to benefit from enriched and innovative services that will enhance customer experience".
"This PCRF implementation will require the Openet Policy Manager to deeply integrate with the mobile packet core nodes, which is a key area of expertise for Kapsch"
