PCC Deployments [223]: KT [South Korea] Uses Tekelec for VoLTE

Tekelec announced that "South Korean mobile operator KT is deploying Tekelec’s market-leading Policy Server (PCRF) for its LTE and 3G networks. The Policy Server will support KT’s new Voice over LTE (VoLTE) offering, LTE data plans and Rich Communication Suite (RCS) service .. Tekelec’s Policy Server will support daily and monthly quota tracking for a variety of services, including voice, Internet usage, file transfer, instant messaging, and video telephony. The daily tracking will give KT new flexibility to offer per diem packages and service options across 3G, LTE and RCS services – a rarity in the industry".

This may be also related to the recent Korea Communications Commission decision to "let three local mobile operators, SK Telecom, KT and LG U+, charge users extra fees for VOIP applications or block their use entirely" (here).

".. The operator exceeded three million LTE subscribers in mid-November and four million by the end of 2012 [see chart below] .. The deal expands Tekelec’s policy footprint to a new country in the Asia-Pacific region. The company has additional customers in India, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore".
