Openet Deploys PCC with VoLTE Support
May 24, 2012 - Openet
Openet announced a "successful tier one PCC deployments supporting Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services. Openet’s market leading suite of policy and charging products deliver the advanced Quality of Service (QoS) control and flexible charging required to implement VoLTE at scale in tier one mobile networks .. Delivering profitable VoLTE services requires a deep integration between Policy and Charging functions. To ensure a high quality, the policy management system needs to dynamically manage unpredictable mobile resources associated with each VoLTE call, while simultaneously ensuring the charge is based on voice call rates rather than data consumption".
