He has worked in the telecom industry for over 15 years in the areas of design and architecture, and holds several patents in policy management and control. Examples include converged bandwidth control for wireless access, wireline access or both. Reports about wireless access usage are received through the Gx interface; wireline access usage is conveyed via RADIUS accounting messages.

This involves the ability to specify separate quotas per service or access type, or to define quotas common to both access types. The infrastructure for the live demonstration consisted of the following parts: Wireless structural health monitoring system Literature review. The SAPC collects the reported volume in a user accumulation counter that permits control of subscriber usage and allows for actions to be taken when subscribers exceed their usage limits.

It also supports connection to the network application layer via standard protocols or using web service technology for easy integration with application functions that do not implement 3GPP or TISPAN protocols. The demonstration involved a subscriber able to access the network from both a wireless and a wireline access network. Ian holds a B. Apart from incorporating new functional features, emphasis is put on operations salc aspects of management.


For the past five years he has been involved in developing the specifications of the SAPC and is currently responsible for Fixed Mobile Convergence.

In addition, the introduction of subscriber- and serviceaware control gives network service providers the ability to optimize network performance. In keeping with the architecture, the SAPC prototype also integrates new functionality for wireline access. In this new context, network service providers are striving to provide a high-performance network that delivers highly rewarding multimedia experiences, encourages long-term customer loyalty, and supports marketdifferentiating services.

With converged policy control, network service providers can use ericssln functions and processes to control multiple access methods.

Traditional policy control offerings have been divided into two categories: Examples of actions are restricting access, downgrading QoS, redirecting, declining sessions, and notifying the subscriber via text message or e-mail. For example, they could be divided into Gold, Silver and Bronze groups for all the types of access they are granted. The functionality is key to give users information about their current options for extending the service when, say, a usage limit has been reached.

Performance Analysis, Evaluation, and Applications Journal. This approach sapcc all the required functionality coming from both wireless and wireline access Figure 1. He is currently responsible for releases of SAPC. Convergence also provides a strong value proposition, by reducing total cost of ownership TCO and introducing new revenue streams via a futureproof investment. During the past 10 years he has focused on network performance and management, policy control, and system management.

Policy control plays a pivotal role in regulating this new reality. The spc had a subscription to a wireline-wireless plan with a data usage limit of 10GB — wireline, wireless or both.


The effect of the downgrade could be seen in the monitoring PCs. In the system architecture, the core network hosts the anchor point a packet data network gateway or PDN-GW for these access types. Broadband Forum specifications www.

It does not, for instance, specify how wireline access should be included. The subscriber in this demonstration initiated concurrent wireline and wireless sessions. By applying fair-usage policies, network eapc providers can minimize end-user abuse by the 10 percent of subscribers who consume 90 percent of network resources.

Ericsson’s convergent policy controller advertisement. The SAPC communicates with wireless and wireline access gateways using standard or de facto standard protocols. Javier holds an M. This category of users is entitled to high QoS over both wireline and wireless accesses.

Now, however, network service providers can employ a single core network to manage multiple access methods, and policy control has evolved to reflect this. She then obtained an M. Proof of concept becomes product Given the success of the SAPC demonstration at the Mobile World Congressthe next logical step is product commercialization.

The SAPC component makes policy decisions for wireline and wireless accesses, providing a centralized control that is based on a single subscription. During the course of the sessions, the user subscription was reassigned through the GUI to the Silver group. The SAPC supports common accumulators for use with both wireline and wireless access.
