PCRF for RADIUS based Broadband networks
PCRF (Policy & Charging Rules Function) is at the heart of any modern communications service provider’s core network and it controls the way services are delivered and charged for customers. The standard developed mainly for 3G and newer standards and requires a real-time DIAMETER based access network. But most CSPs worldwide today still have a RADIUS based network but would like to benefit from the use cases made possible by PCRF like fair-usage and tiered service plans. AdvOSS offers a complete PCRF solution for Radius based networks.
