Following North American Successes, Camiant Expands Mobile - Wins in EuropeOctober 08, 2008
Policy Control Platform a “Must-Have” Solution for Cost-Effective Mobile Broadband Resource Control
MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — October 8, 2008 — Camiant, Inc.,the leading provider of policy control and application assurance technology, today announced that following successful deployments in North America, it has signed on a new European GSM operator as a customer of its leading policy control platform. Camiant’s Policy Control Server enables operators to dynamically allocate mobile broadband resources to maximize throughput within the limits of their existing network. With the dramatic increase in mobile broadband usage due to the introduction of flat rate pricing models, wireless operators are embracing Camiant’s Policy Control Server as a must have solution providing them with cost-effective mobile broadband resource control.
According to the September 2008 Yankee Group report, “The Anywhere Tipping Point”: Wiring the world with fiber, building out mobile networks, making existing networks general-purpose, bigger, faster, smarter, more integrated takes “boatloads of money”. With the growth in mobile broadband demand far outstripping overall revenue growth, the funds to support those investments aren’t easy to come by. For example, Yankee Group Monitor and Forecast data shows Global Mobile CAPEX expenditures growing at a CAGR of 7.6% from 2005 to 2012. At the same time, Yankee Group sees Mobile data traffic growing by three orders of magnitude.
“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,” said Jennifer Pigg, vice president, Enabling Technologies, Yankee Group, Inc. “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.”
“Wireless operators are turning to Camiant’s trusted and proven policy control solution as mobile broadband applications become increasingly popular,” said Randy Fuller, vice president of business development for Camiant. “Camiant provides wireless operators with vital real-time intelligence and management of their network resources, helping create an infrastructure designed to capitalize on new revenue opportunities.”
Camiant’s Policy Control Server, fully compliant with 3GPP’s* Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) specifications, is an essential component of the broadband network, providing vital real-time intelligence and management of network resources, while creating an infrastructure for new revenue opportunities.
