Proof of concept becomes product Given the success of the SAPC demonstration at the Mobile World Congressthe next logical step is product commercialization. The SAPC component makes policy decisions for wireline and wireless accesses, providing a centralized control that zapc based on a single subscription. The SAPC communicates with wireless and wireline access gateways using standard or de facto standard protocols.

He has devoted the past five ercisson to 3GPP standards that drive policy control architecture. 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. Now, however, network service providers can employ a single core network to manage multiple access methods, and policy control has evolved to reflect this. Wireless structural health monitoring system Literature review.

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.

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. The demonstration involved a subscriber able to access the network from both a wireless and a wireline access network. Traditional policy control offerings have been divided into two categories: Market view and vision The market for policy control is very active, especially for wireless access following the introduction of mobile broadband.


The subscriber in this demonstration initiated concurrent wireline and wireless sessions. During the course of the sessions, the user subscription was reassigned through the GUI to the Silver group. Javier holds an M.

Broadband Forum specifications www. Examples of actions are restricting access, downgrading QoS, redirecting, declining sessions, and notifying the subscriber via text message or e-mail. Ericsson’s convergent policy controller advertisement. As a step towards minimizing costs and network complexity, network service providers should assess the wireline and wireless sapcc domains to identify synergies and redundant functions. 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.

He is currently responsible for releases of SAPC. The SAPC also supports fair usage functionality by extracting wireline and wireless access eficsson. Convergence also provides a strong value proposition, by reducing total cost of ownership TCO and introducing new revenue streams via a futureproof investment.

The SAPC supports common accumulators for use with ericson wireline and wireless access.

New revenue streams Being able to control a network with wireline and wireless services from a single point opens the door to new business opportunities. She then obtained an M. Gary holds a B. Convergent policy control from concept to product SAPC: The SAPC, which served as the centralized policy decision reicsson.

Ericsson review: SAPC: Ericsson’s convergent policy controller

The Ssapc collects the reported volume in a user accumulation counter that permits control of subscriber usage and allows for actions to be taken when subscribers exceed their usage limits. This category of users is entitled to high QoS over both wireline and wireless accesses.


The user had a subscription to a wireline-wireless plan with a data usage limit of 10GB — wireline, wireless or both. He has worked in a variety of areas including design, architecture and system management. However, 3GPP Rel-8 is aapc the initial step toward achieving a complete multiaccess network.

With converged policy control, network service providers can use common functions and processes to control multiple access methods. The infrastructure for the live xapc consisted of the following parts: By managing the network from this location, network service providers can align service needs with the transport network.

ericssoh PCs for monitoring usage and QoS of user sessions initiated from both access networks. This involves the ability to specify separate quotas per service or access type, or to define quotas common to both access types. Ericson has worked in the telecom industry for over 15 years in the areas of design and architecture, and holds several patents in policy management and control.

For the past five years he has been involved in developing the specifications of the SAPC and is currently responsible for Fixed Mobile Convergence. Ian holds a B. Policy control plays a pivotal role in regulating this new reality. Digital Communications Spring In keeping with the architecture, the SAPC prototype also integrates new functionality for wireline access.

Examples include converged bandwidth control for wireless access, wireline access or both. It does not, for instance, specify how wireline access should be included. In addition, the introduction of subscriber- and serviceaware control gives network service providers the ability to optimize network performance.
