Telecom Lead India: Tata Communications — in association with Allot Communications and Openet — has launched cloud-based policy management solution.
Mobile network operators (MNOs) will benefit from cloud-based policy management solution — as claimed by Tata Communications — as they can create differentiated mobile data services and with less capital investment.
In addition, Tata Communications’ Hosted Policy Engine allows MNOs to move beyond flat-rate data packages to deliver targeted data service offers for new revenue streams.

The Hosted Policy Engine allows mobile operators to create targeted service packages to optimise network resources and revenue through tiered service plans for customers.
Based on Openet’s Policy Charging and Rules Function, and Allot Service Gateway, the Hosted Policy Engine means MNOs can now implement policy management cost effectively.
“Mobile operators are under increasing pressure to maximise ROI on the mobile broadband solutions they deploy for their customers, but the sheer complexity of the mobile environment can mean that managing these services is overwhelming both in terms of volume of transactions and scale of investment needed,” said John Landau,
senior VP, Technology and Services Evolution, at Tata Communications.
Shira Levine, directing analyst, Infonetics, says that a hosted solution offers a faster and more efficient way to get new services to market while also providing a more predictable cost structure. This is an appealing proposition to those operators that lack the resources or the budget to embark on a more traditional deployment of policy control and enforcement solutions.
