Camiant Sings Euro Deal

Camiant, which provides policy control and application assurance technology, says it has signed a new European GSM operator as a customer for its policy control platform. Camiants Policy Control Server enables operators to dynamically allocate mobile broadband resources to maximize throughput within the limits of their existing network.
Camiants Policy Control Server provides real-time intelligence and
management of network resources, while creating an infrastructure for
new revenue opportunities. Camiant says that with the dramatic increase in mobile broadband usage due to the introduction of flat-rate pricing models, wireless operators are embracing its Policy Control Server to provide them with cost-effective mobile broadband resource control.
With operators scrutinizing the value of the billions spent on capacity upgrades, having a policy control solution in place is a sound, often critical, decision for financial and customer service management, says Jennifer Pigg, Vice President, Enabling Technologies, at analyst Yankee Group. The growing trend to offer flat-rate plans poses a major concern for operators as consumers embrace unlimited Internet access without worrying about getting an enormous bill. The potential for degraded service quality is real.
