Bridgewater's Policy Mgt Supports 3GPP Release 9 Standards

Bridgewater Systems announced enhancements to its Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) compliant Bridgewater Policy Controller for HSPA and LTE networks. These enhancements support new requirements defined in Release 9 of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP).

The new Bridgewater Policy Controller, which supports 3GPP PCRF Release 7, 8 and 9 standards on the same platform, provides real-time network, application, and subscriber policies that allow operators to manage mobile data growth and deliver personalized services.

The 3GPP Release 9 standard expands the policy enforcement functions of the Gx interface to include subscriber usage information for volume-based service metering. The Policy Controller moves beyond current standards to support real-time, multi-service metering based on application usage and is fully interoperable with leading network equipment providers.
