SoftBank Demos Busy Hour Mobile Policy Control with Ericsson

Ericsson and SoftBank Mobile demonstrated a policy-based system aimed at improving the user experience in even the most congested network environments, such as rush-hour in Tokyo.

Ericsson's new software feature, the Mobility-based Policy creates a direct connection between Ericsson SGSN-MME and Ericsson Service-Aware Policy Controller. This connection enables mobility management information from the SGSN-MME to go directly to the Service-Aware Policy Controller, while selected policy decisions from the Service-Aware Policy Controller can then go directly to the SGSN-MME. By off-loading the gateway, Mobility-based Policy supports an enhanced, location-based mobile user experience while reducing signaling traffic in the network.

The SoftBank Mobile network includes both Ericsson LTE Radio Access Network and Evolved Packet Core. Ericsson was also selected by SoftBank Mobile to supply and integrate its end-to-end mobile network solution for VoLTE.

"To accommodate our subscribers and data traffic growth, it is critical to optimize our spectrum. By enabling us to dynamically allocate the best radio resources on a per-user, per-terminal basis, Ericsson Mobility-based Policy has the potential to increase our network flexibility while reducing signaling traffic network wide - this efficiency drives additional opportunities to improve both the user experience and network performance," said Mr. Yoichi Funabiki, Director, Mobile Network Planning Division, Core Network Department SoftBank Mobile.

"Ericsson and SoftBank Mobile work together to consistently enhance the performance and user experience on their mobile network. With this demonstration of Mobility-based Policy, an innovative feature of Ericsson's Evolved Packet Core, we continue to strengthen our strategic partnership with SoftBank Mobile," stated Jan Signell, Head of Region North East Asia, Ericsson.
