Bridgewater launches 3GPP R9 compliant PCRF suite

Bridgewater Systems has added new functionality to its Bridgewater Policy Controller suite, becoming the first policy control vendor to support the requirements laid out in release 9 of the 3GPP.
The service now supports 3GPP PCRF release 7, 8 and 9. Going beyond the latest requirement to include subscriber usage information for volume-based service metering, Bridgewater has added multi-service metering based on application usage.
“Standards-based policy control is critical for the new usage and application-based service models operators are asking for to profit from mobile data growth,” Bridgewater senior vice president David Sharpley said.
