Allot-Amdocs Solution for Cell Congestion

A recent report by HeavyReading concluded that "RAN Congestion is Getting Worse" (here) and that "A majority of operators want real-time or near-real-time information on congestion when applying controls".

A number of vendors, usually based on partnerships between networking devices and policy control offer solutions to the problem (see Vasona,  RADCOM/HP, RADCOM/Amdocs, Movik, SandvineBroadband Systems). 

Allot Communications and Amdocs published a presentation explaining their joint solution for policy-based cell congestion (note that the subscriber location is noted only when the session starts).

  1. Above solution as assumption that users are getting exact same bandwidth that is given by amdocs; but in reality that is not the case.
