Ensuring Fair Usage with Integrated Policy Control and Charging

To ensure that the vast majority of a service providerís customers are able to enjoy optimal data usage on their network, FTS policy control and charging solution enable service provides to introduce fair usage policy management methods. When users exceed or abuse their data plan usage levels, the service provider has the option to slow the speed in order that all subscribers can enjoy quality access to the Internet. Fair usage dictates average bandwidth thresholds, with allowances for extended bandwidth access. Using these measures, operators have the flexibility to implement a number of options:

  • Assure network resources availability for all subscribers by preventing overall bandwidth throttling by few specific subscribers
  • Sending a warning notification (e.g. SMS or email) indicating excessive usage and preventing bill shock
  • Down-speeding usage or limiting prioritization
  • Restricting bandwidth intensive services or applications during peak traffic hours
  • Providing options to sign up for temporary or permanent upgrade in a service plan
  • Prioritizing or blocking specific services, content or applications, in order to encourage subscribers to move away from basic, flat-rate data plans and take advantage of special, personalized offers or packages

Leapô Policy Controlís traffic management solves network congestion by empowering service providers to best match revenues with network utilization and protects QoS by enforcing data volume caps.
