The infrastructure for the live demonstration consisted of the following parts: Today, with advanced new mobile terminals and good tariff plans, end users are increasingly likely to use their mobile devices to access the new services via the Internet. Telephone networks have evolved from dedicated links used mainly for narrowband telephony applications to a common broadband network, the resources of which are shared by a multitude of end users who compete with one another for quality of service QoS.

The SAPC component makes policy decisions ericszon wireline and wireless accesses, providing a centralized control that is based on a single subscription. In the system architecture, the core network hosts the anchor point a packet data network gateway or PDN-GW for these access types.

During the course of the sessions, the user subscription was reassigned through the GUI to the Silver group. This allows for seamless enduser movement from the wireline network to the wireless network or vice versaand sets the stage for true multiaccess networks.

For the past five years he has been involved in developing the specifications of the SAPC ericssson is currently responsible for Fixed Mobile Convergence. The converged approach gives added value.

During the demonstration, the subscriber initiated concurrent ericsspn and wireless sessions.

Traditional policy control offerings have been divided into two categories: The SAPC also supports fair usage sappc by extracting wireline and wireless access information. This approach provides all the required functionality coming from both wireless and wireline access Figure 1. Gary holds a B.


In this role he helps define and coordinate the evolution of SAPC.

After reaching this limit, the subscriber was redirected to a web portal where the quota could be topped up. New revenue streams Being able to control a network with wireline and wireless services from a single point opens the door to new business opportunities.

He is currently responsible for releases of SAPC. By managing the network from this location, network service providers can align service needs with the transport network. Convergence also provides a strong value proposition, by reducing total cost of ownership TCO erifsson introducing new revenue streams via a futureproof investment.

Convergent policy control from concept to product SAPC: In salc with the architecture, the SAPC prototype also integrates ericssno functionality for wireline access. Wireless structural health monitoring system Literature review.

He has worked in the telecom industry for over 15 years in the areas of design and architecture, and holds several patents in policy management and control.

Examples of actions are restricting access, downgrading QoS, redirecting, declining sessions, and notifying the subscriber via text message or e-mail. This gives network service providers the tools to differentiate between user categories that can be defined across accesses; and converged fair usage control based on time, volume or both.

Javier holds an M. Ian holds a B. The demonstration involved a subscriber able to access the network from both a wireless and a wireline access network. As a step towards minimizing costs and network complexity, network service providers should assess the wireline and wireless network domains to identify synergies and redundant functions.

He has spent much of his career developing innovative solutions in customer care, policy control, and systems management. This ericsson of users is entitled to high QoS over both wireline and wireless accesses.

The effect of the downgrade could be seen in the monitoring PCs. The Sapv communicates with wireless and wireline access gateways using standard or de facto standard protocols.


Aaron Mar joined Ericsson in when Redback Networks was acquired. For example, they could be divided into Gold, Silver and Bronze groups for all the types of access they are granted.

Policy control plays a pivotal role in regulating this new reality. Apart from incorporating new functional features, emphasis is put on operations and aspects of management. Digital Communications Spring In this new context, network service providers are striving to provide a high-performance network that delivers highly rewarding multimedia experiences, encourages long-term customer loyalty, and supports marketdifferentiating services. Market view and vision The market for policy control is very active, especially for wireless access following the introduction of mobile broadband.

It also supports connection to the network application layer via standard protocols or using web service technology erlcsson easy integration with application functions that do not implement 3GPP or TISPAN protocols. The SAPC, which served as the centralized policy decision point.

Now, however, network service providers can employ a single core network to manage multiple access methods, and policy control has evolved to reflect this. A network edge element the multi-access edge or MAE provides connectivity to the internet, in addition to supporting a diverse set of services. With this network architecture, the SAPC can, when it receives an accounting start, stop, or interim message, detect when user sessions have been established, terminated or changed.

Performance Analysis, Evaluation, and Applications Journal. Examples include converged bandwidth control for wireless access, wireline access or both. Ericsson’s convergent policy controller advertisement. Proof of concept becomes product Given the success of the SAPC demonstration at the Mobile World Congressthe next logical step is product commercialization.
