Tata Communications Builds Hosted Policy Management and Enforcement w/Allot and Openet

Tata Communications announced " the world's first cloud-based policy management solution that enables mobile network operators (MNOs) to create differentiated mobile data services quickly and with significantly less capital investment. .. Developed in partnership with Allot Communications and Openet, Tata Communications' Hosted Policy Engine allows MNOs to move beyond flat-rate data packages to deliver targeted data service offers for new revenue streams". 

"The Hosted Policy Engine is a pre-integrated policy management solution, which enforces traffic optimisation and monetisation policies in real-time, based on subscriber usage patterns across 2.5G, 3G, 4G and WiFi networks. This allows mobile operators to create targeted service packages to optimise network resources and revenue through tiered service plans for customers. The capital investment needed in a dedicated policy management approach has proved either cost-prohibitive, or lacked the flexibility needed to keep up with mobile broadband demand. Consequently, a large number of MNOs do not have effective policy management tools in place. Based on Openet's Policy Charging and Rules Function, and Allot Service Gateway, the Hosted Policy Engine means MNOs can now implement policy management cost effectively"

John Landau (pictured), SVP, Technology and Services Evolution, Tata Communications said: “Our goal with the Hosted Policy Engine is to provide a pre-integrated best-of-breed policy engine that delivers economies of scale for MNOs thanks to our cloud-based approach. It offers the benefits of market leading solution components, but with significantly less capex investment and no support requirements, opening up this solution to a large number of MNOs currently without satisfactory policy management"
