Belgacom Looks to Alcatel-Lucent's PCRF for Personalized Services

Alcatel-Lucent has supplied Belgacom with its 5780 Dynamic Services Controller (DSC) that provides the Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) for 3G and 4G wireless networks. This allows Belgacom, Belgium’s leading telecommunications service provider, to offer its mobile subscribers easier-to-understand, personalized service plans and the ability to track billing statements in real-time. Subscribers can now receive real-time usage notifications and access continually updated information about their charges for both national and international data services usage.
Alcatel-Lucent said its solution can dynamically interface with applications such as online video or gaming sites to understand the specific network requirements needed to deliver them to the subscriber with an enhanced quality of experience. It can also be used to optimize network resources, effectively increasing the virtual capacity of an operators’ network.

Luc Defieuw, VP CIS, North, Central and Eastern Europe from Alcatel-Lucent comments: "Many service providers are now investigating how data usage and monitoring solutions can help them manage surging network demand, while reducing costs and providing even more value for their subscribers. With this deployment, Belgacom is putting itself at the forefront of this movement."
The 5780 DSC forms part of Alcatel-Lucent’s Wireless Packet Core solution.
