Amdocs Integrates BWS - Introduces a Charging and Policy Management Solution

Amdocs sent a pre-announcement mailer, stating that on "On November 28th, Amdocs will launch the Data Experience Solution.. The Data Experience Solution brings together policy and charging functions to address key use cases for mobile operators" 
 ".. it is fully productized, featuring productized integration between the Policy, Charging and Product Catalog functions. It features eight popular market offers – available out of the box and preconfigured as part of the solution – including tiered services, bill shock, bandwidth boost, WiFi offload, LTE services and more. The Data Experience Solution is delivered as a complete package – deployed on a single hardware/software system that will revolutionize the way mobile operators introduce data services".

Needless to say that the policy management part comes from the Bridgewater acquisition (here) and obsoletes Amdocs' short-living own PCRF product (see - "Amdocs Launches PCRF" - here). The charging part is based on Amdocs' Turbo Charging product.

Also, according to its recent tweets, Bridgewater is now "the Amdocs Data Experience team".
