The two warrant that Sandvine’s policy control technology is fully interoperable with Volubill’s policy management and charging system. The combination aims to help with real-time management of services.
The combined systems would be able to enforce rules with tiered broadband services. Real-time response would be especially useful in wireless broadband; a specific example suggested was the tiered model Verizon Wireless said it plans to introduce sometime in the next month or two.
The announcement, the two said, builds on the deployments of Volubill’s online charging system at various Orange subsidiaries and at Movistar Venezuela to support prepaid charging models.
