Personalizing the Network: Policy End to End
In recent survey work, heavy reading found very strong interest among telcos, especially those with cellular assets in policy control and management. While some have already deployed policy tools and servers, the survey suggested that many more will do so in the next 12-18 months. Why the strong interest now? What will network operators and service providers use those policy tools for? And what are the implications of their plans for the kind of policy tools they deploy? In this paper, the authors look at the key catalysts for deploying policy tools as revealed in their survey.
