Vedicis DPI-PCEF (Policy and Charging Enforcement Function)

The continued popularity of Internet contents and services has contributed to the development of high bandwidth networks and new revenues for Communication Service Providers. However, the ever growing usage causes network congestion and is a challenge for CSPs. As voice revenue plummets and investments in new technologies continue, they need to find the right balance between maximizing the traffic monetization and keeping data expansion and policy under control. 

Vedicis DPI-PCEF provides a cost-efficient and access-agnostic solution to generate new revenues and enforcing subscriber- and application- based policies to optimize the network efficiency.

Analyze. Control. Monetize.

Based on the Vedicis Software Service Gateway (SSG) platform, Vedicis DPI-PCEF (Deep Packet Inspection and Policy and Charging Enforcement Function) empowers carriers to efficiently manage their Data traffic, and to leverage the whole feature set of their Online Charging System with new subscriber's application- and location- aware use cases.

The DPI engine, natively integrated in Vedicis DPI-PCEF and running at a per subscriber granularity, opens up new opportunities for CSPs to control network costs and monetize subscribers' data traffic.
