The SAPC, which served as the centralized policy decision point.

Javier holds ericssoon M. During the course of the sessions, the user subscription was reassigned through the GUI to the Silver group. Ericsson’s convergent policy controller advertisement. It also supports connection to the network application layer via standard protocols or using web service technology for easy integration with application functions ericssom do not implement 3GPP or TISPAN protocols. Traditional policy control offerings have been divided into two categories: The functionality erixsson key to give users information about their current options for extending the service when, say, a usage limit has been reached.

The demonstration involved a subscriber able to access the network from both a wireless and a wireline access network. Wireless structural health monitoring system Literature review. The subscriber in this demonstration initiated concurrent wireline and wireless sessions. Ian holds a B. Reports about wireless access usage are received through the Gx interface; wireline access usage is conveyed via RADIUS accounting messages.

Proof of concept becomes product Given the success ericssoon the SAPC demonstration at the Mobile World Congressthe next logical step is product commercialization. Aaron Mar joined Ericsson in when Redback Networks was acquired. This category of users is entitled to high QoS over both wireline and wireless accesses.

Convergent policy control from concept to product SAPC: In this role he helps define and coordinate the evolution of SAPC. Policy control plays a pivotal role in regulating this new reality.

The converged approach gives added value. He has worked in the telecom industry for over 15 years in the areas of design and architecture, and spac several patents in policy management and control.


With this network architecture, the SAPC can, when it receives an accounting start, stop, or interim message, detect when user sessions have been established, terminated or changed.

The SAPC supports common accumulators for use with both wireline and wireless access. Apart from incorporating new functional features, emphasis is put on operations and aspects of management. After reaching this limit, the subscriber was redirected to a web portal where the quota could be topped up.

Examples of actions are restricting access, downgrading QoS, redirecting, declining sessions, and notifying the subscriber via text message or e-mail.

This approach provides all the required functionality coming from both wireless and wireline access Figure 1.

In this new context, network service providers are striving to provide a high-performance network that delivers ericdson rewarding multimedia experiences, encourages long-term customer loyalty, and supports marketdifferentiating services.

By applying fair-usage policies, network service providers can minimize end-user abuse by the 10 percent of subscribers who consume 90 percent of network resources. During the past 10 years he has focused on network performance and management, policy control, and system management. PCs for monitoring usage and QoS of user sessions initiated from both access networks.

However, 3GPP Sqpc is only the initial step toward achieving a complete multiaccess network. Today, with advanced new mobile terminals and good tariff plans, end users are increasingly likely to use their mobile devices to access the new services via the Internet.

Examples include converged bandwidth control for wireless access, wireline access or both. In keeping with the architecture, the SAPC prototype also integrates new functionality for wireline access. Users are treated as part of an offering or group according to their subscription references. By managing the network from this location, network service providers can align service needs with the transport network.

The SAPC collects the reported volume ericason a user accumulation counter that permits control of subscriber usage and allows for actions to be taken when subscribers exceed their usage limits.


He is currently responsible for releases of SAPC. For example, they could be divided into Gold, Silver and Bronze groups for all the types of access they are granted. As a step towards minimizing costs and network complexity, network service providers should assess the wireline and wireless network domains to identify synergies and redundant functions. This allows for seamless enduser movement from the wireline network to the wireless network or vice versaand sets the stage for true multiaccess networks.

The user had a subscription to a wireline-wireless plan with a data usage limit of 10GB — wireline, wireless or both. Digital Communications Spring The infrastructure ericcsson the live demonstration consisted ercisson the following parts: She then obtained an M. It does not, for instance, specify how wireline access should be included.

The SAPC component makes policy decisions for wireline and wireless accesses, providing a centralized control that is based on a single subscription. Telephone networks have evolved from dedicated links used mainly for narrowband telephony applications to a common broadband network, the resources of which are shared by a multitude of end users who compete with one another for quality of service QoS.

Furthermore, they are in step with FIGURE 1 Converged policy control for network service providers offering wireless and wireline access. With converged policy control, network service providers can use common functions and processes to control multiple access methods. This gives network service providers the tools to differentiate between user categories that can be defined across accesses; and converged fair usage control based on time, volume or both.

In the system architecture, the core network hosts the anchor point a packet data network gateway or PDN-GW for these access types. The SAPC communicates with wireless and wireline access gateways using standard or de facto standard protocols. Documents Flashcards Grammar checker.
