ALU’s PCRF deployments have migrated from being dominated by “solution sales” as part of an entire RAN or EPC, to solutions where ALU’s policy technology is being overlaid on existing PEPs and multivendor, multi-domain environments. This is evidence of product desirability and multi-vendor support. ALU’s Dynamic Services Controller (DSC) PCRF showcases flexibility. It allows for user-creation of new policies in the field, and is integrated with ALU’s Surepay OCS such that integrated policy-charging rule-sets may be defined and validity checked. SmartPlan Builder also enables exposure of safe building blocks and further innovation, without deep expertise. This is an important capability, and, fortunately, becoming a trend among leading suppliers.
