Volubill, a leading provider of real-time policy and charging solutions, will bring its expertise to a Light Reading webinar on Thursday, April 22, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. GMT. DPI & Policy in Mobile Networks: Smart Traffic Management, hosted by Heavy Reading senior analyst Graham Finnie, will explore how increasingly-intelligent policy control solutions assist in solving network congestion and revenue challenges.
Ericsson recently released a report stating that December 2009 was the first time that the volume of mobile data traffic globally outweighed voice traffic across operators’ networks, affirming the extent of the mobile data explosion. During the same month, reports surfaced that operators’ network management and pricing practices were unable to deliver proportionate revenues for the amount of data being consumed, compromising their ability to remain profitable.
“This webinar is proving timely,” said John Aalbers, CEO of Volubill. “Operators can either keep using flat-rate pricing models that turn them into ‘dumb pipes,’ or they can start to make their networks more intelligent and use that data to solve some key challenges.
He continues, “Consumers expect more personalized offerings, as well as increased network speeds. To keep them happy providers will have to differentiate service offerings more granularly. The tools to do that effectively lie with DPI, policy control and integrated charging systems. We will explore these options during this webinar.”
