Allot, Camiant join forces on DPI, policy control
Allot Communications and Camiant said today that they’re combining their respective technologies to offer a joint deep packet inspection (DPI) and policy control platform for fixed and mobile broadband networks.
The two companies said the agreement was expected to strengthen their offerings by enabling the deployment of application- and subscriber-aware, tiered and premium services that control bandwidth utilization and enhance quality of experience (QoE).
The joint platform combines Allot's DPI-based application identification and policy and charging enforcement function (PCEF) capabilities with Camiant's multimedia policy engine (MPE), which is fully compliant with 3GPP's policy and charging rules function (PCRF) specifications.
The two companies said the integrated offering will enable operators to better control and manage network usage, and as a result, prioritize time-sensitive applications, create new service plans, and carefully control peak and total bandwidth utilization based on a number of key conditions.
