A Holistic Approach to Policy and Charging

White Paper Overview

The modern network landscape demands viewing policy and charging as complementary functions that add value to each other, rather than siloed systems that function independently from each other. By integrating policy and charging systems, operators can unlock new revenue streams and cater to new customer segments.

This white paper explores the benefits of integrating the two, common challenges, latest use cases, and more.

Key Takeaways

Get an overview of the modern policy and charging landscape
Today’s sophisticated solutions employ a dynamic approach that goes beyond traditional network resource management, boosting revenue and customer satisfaction.

Learn how to create synergy in the core network
Integrating policy and charging results in an exponential increase in flexibility, granularity, and feature-richness. It helps drive revenue, service innovation, and network optimization.

Know more about the latest use cases
Operators can deliver multi-dimensional use cases such as smart caps, bandwidth on demand, tiered services, day passes, and more.

Understand the challenges to policy and charging integration within a standard 3GPP environment
Operators need to choose the best path for them after considering factors such as existing network infrastructure, the services they provide, access technologies, timeline, budget, regulatory requirements, and more.

Explore different integration scenarios and considerations
There are three main types of policy and charging integration, including loosely coupled, tightly couple and integrated, and tightly coupled and pre-integrated.
