[Update 36: Torres, Tibco/Kabira] PCRF - DPI Compatibility Matrix

Several updates made to the PCRF-DPI matrix:
  • Torres Networks informed me that they are now interoperable with Arbor's eSeries (Ellacoya) product line
  • The former Kabira products were rebranded as TIBCO Policy Orchestration™, presenting 4 key functions - Policy server, Profile manager, Usage server and Quota server. Tibco acquired Kabira a year ago. Tibco annual report says that:

    "On April 20, 2010, we acquired Kabira Technologies, Inc. (“Kabira”), a private company incorporated in Delaware and a provider of high performance transaction processing software solutions for communications service providers globally. Kabira’s products and solutions support key infrastructure capabilities such as subscriber provisioning, value-based charging, and mobile payments. Its in-memory approach to supporting transactions complements our abilities in handling events and adds to our broader suite of in-memory infrastructure software products. We paid $3.9 million of cash to acquire all of the outstanding equity of Kabira. We have also incurred $0.4 million of acquisition related and other expenses associated with the acquisition" (here).
