Tekelec is expanding its "Policy Everywhere” partner ecosystem to help mobile operators deliver a superior subscriber experience.
The company is testing interoperability between its Mobile Policy Gateway (MPG) and solutions from Roke Manor Research (SmartSwitch), Greenpacket (Intouch Mobile Data Offload platform) and Smith Micro (NetWise Director).
This testing includes standards-compliant access network discovery and selection function (ANDSF) capabilities, as well as advanced use cases that extend the reach of policy directly to mobile devices.
Tekelec’s Mobile Policy Gateway integrates with its own market-leading Policy Server (PCRF) or other vendors’ PCRFs to reduce the need for costly deep packet inspection (DPI) and policy enforcement (PCEF) functions in the network core.
The MPG combines standards-compliant ANDSF with dynamic network- and subscriber-aware policy management, turning smartphones, tablets and other smart devices into policy enforcement points.
