Intelligent policy: The key to solving LTE's unique challengers

As operators transition to LTE, policy will assume a critical network role and become a strategic component in the quest to manage and monetize LTE networks.

Virtually every LTE session and subscriber will need to be managed or charged in some fashion, which will require the involvement of a policy server in each transaction. From prioritization to personalized service plans, the coupling of LTE with policy promises to help resolve key LTE operational and business challenges and support a new generation of revenue generating services.

Equipped with intelligent policy management, operators can shape and manage network demand, revenue contributions from differing classes of customers, capital expenditures, and overall growth of the LTE, mobile broadband market.
