Leading LTE operator chooses Sandvine for Network Policy Control

WATERLOO, ON, July 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Sandvine, (TSX:SVC) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators, today announced it has been selected by C Spire Wireless, one of the top 10 wireless operators in the U.S., to provide its unified policy control platform. Six of the top 12 wireless operators in U.S. are Sandvine customers. C Spire was one of the 11 new customers that Sandvine won during its second quarter of 2013.

"Sandvine's unified policy platform was an important factor in our selection process," said Charles D. Watson II, Senior NOCC and Technical Infrastructure Manager for C Spire Wireless, a Ridgeland, Mississippi-based wireless communications and technology services company. "Having policy decision making distributed at multiple points of presence - an ability unique to Sandvine - gives us the flexibility and reliability to deploy a variety of over-the-top services our subscribers care about, including parental controls and video optimization."

Typical service plan development and implementation is structured in a rudimentary system where services are defined separately and then stitched together.  Sandvine's open and collaborative approach allows popular use cases like bill shock prevention to be defined and implemented in minutes.  Integrating the PCRF and PCEF functions, Sandvine's unified approach to network policy control extends the reach of service definition and implementation.

"Our network policy control platform has been deployed in over 250 service provider networks in 80 countries worldwide," said Don Bowman, CTO, Sandvine. "We believe the ideal network policy control architecture stems from a unified platform that spans across the data plane and control plane bringing distributed intelligence so policy decisions are made faster, without having to wait for a query and response."
