Aaron Mar joined Ericsson in when Redback Networks was acquired.

Broadband Traffic Management: [Update11 – Ericsson SAPC] PCRF – DPI Compatibility Matrix

Ericssno about wireless access usage are received through the Gx interface; wireline access usage is conveyed via RADIUS accounting messages. During the demonstration, the subscriber initiated concurrent wireline and wireless sessions. In keeping with the architecture, the SAPC prototype also integrates new functionality for wireline access.

The infrastructure for the live demonstration consisted of the following parts: For example, they could be divided into Gold, Silver and Bronze groups for ericssn the types of access they are granted.

In addition, the introduction of subscriber- and serviceaware control gives network service providers the ability to optimize network performance. He is currently responsible for releases of SAPC. Furthermore, they are in step with FIGURE 1 Converged policy control for network service providers offering wireless and wireline access. It does not, for instance, specify how wireline access should be included. This allows for seamless enduser movement from the wireline network to the wireless network or vice versaand sets the stage for true multiaccess networks.


The effect of the downgrade could be seen in the monitoring PCs. Users are treated as part of an offering sapf group according to their subscription references. New revenue streams Being able to control a network with wireline and wireless services from a single point opens the door to new business opportunities.

He has worked in the telecom industry for over 15 years in the areas of design and architecture, and holds several patents in policy management and control. He has worked sapf a variety of areas including design, architecture and system erucsson. Examples of actions are restricting access, downgrading QoS, redirecting, declining sessions, and notifying the subscriber via text message or e-mail.

Examples include converged bandwidth control for wireless access, wireline access or both.

It also supports connection to the network application layer via standard protocols or using web service technology for easy integration with application functions that do not implement 3GPP or TISPAN protocols.

This category of users is entitled to high QoS over both wireline and wireless accesses. By applying fair-usage policies, network service providers can minimize end-user ericsxon by the 10 percent of subscribers who consume 90 percent of network resources. Performance Analysis, Evaluation, and Applications Journal. Convergent policy control from concept to product SAPC: This gives network service providers the tools to differentiate between user categories that can be defined across accesses; and converged fair usage control based on ericason, volume or both.

PCs for monitoring usage and QoS of user sessions initiated from both access networks. In this new context, network service providers are striving to provide a high-performance network that delivers highly ericssoon multimedia experiences, encourages long-term customer loyalty, and supports marketdifferentiating services.


Ian holds a B. During the past 10 years he has focused on network performance and management, policy control, and system management.

The converged approach gives added value. A network dapc element the multi-access edge or MAE provides connectivity to the internet, in addition to supporting a diverse set of services. The SAPC also supports fair usage functionality by extracting wireline and wireless access information.

This involves the ability to specify separate quotas per service or access type, or to define quotas common to ericssob access types. Today, with advanced new mobile terminals and good tariff plans, end users are increasingly likely to use their mobile devices to access the new services via the Internet.

She then obtained an M. Ericsxon subscriber in this demonstration initiated concurrent wireline and wireless sessions. The SAPC communicates with wireless and wireline access gateways using standard or de facto standard protocols. The SAPC, which served as the centralized policy decision point.

In this role he helps define and coordinate the evolution of SAPC.

For the past five years he has been involved in developing the specifications of the SAPC and is currently responsible for Fixed Mobile Convergence. The SAPC component makes policy decisions for wireline and wireless accesses, providing a centralized control that is based on a single subscription.
