Examples include converged bandwidth control for wireless access, wireline access or both. In keeping with the architecture, the SAPC prototype also integrates new erjcsson for wireline access. During the demonstration, the subscriber initiated concurrent wireline and wireless sessions. This allows for seamless enduser movement from the wireline network to the wireless network or vice versaand sets the stage for true multiaccess ericason.

The user had a subscription to a wireline-wireless plan with a data usage limit of 10GB — wireline, wireless or both. This category of users is entitled to high QoS over both wireline and wireless accesses. Today, with advanced new mobile terminals and good tariff ericssson, end users are increasingly likely to use their mobile devices to access the new services via the Internet.

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 time, volume or both. After reaching this limit, the subscriber was redirected ericssonn a web portal where the quota could be topped up.

The subscriber in this demonstration initiated concurrent wireline and wireless sessions. Aspc also provides a strong value proposition, by reducing total cost of ownership TCO and introducing new revenue streams via a futureproof investment.


It does not, for instance, specify how wireline access should be included. 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. However, 3GPP Rel-8 is only the initial step toward achieving a complete multiaccess network.

This approach provides all the required functionality coming from both wireless and wireline access Figure 1. The infrastructure for the live demonstration consisted of eficsson following parts: Traditional policy control offerings have been divided into two categories: Proof of concept becomes product Given the success of the SAPC demonstration at the Mobile World Congressthe next logical step is product commercialization.

The SAPC also supports fair usage functionality by extracting wireline and wireless access information. PCs for monitoring usage and QoS of user sessions initiated from both access networks. The demonstration involved a subscriber able to access the network from both a wireless and a wireline access network. The converged approach gives added value. Aaron Mar joined Ericsson in when Redback Networks was acquired.

Broadband Forum specifications www. As a step towards minimizing costs and network complexity, network service providers should assess the wireline and wireless network domains to identify synergies and redundant functions. In addition, the introduction of subscriber- and serviceaware control gives network service providers the ability to optimize network performance.

The SAPC communicates with wireless and wireline access gateways using standard or de facto standard protocols. The effect of the downgrade could be seen in the monitoring PCs. 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.


In the system architecture, the core network hosts the anchor point a packet data network gateway or PDN-GW for these access types. He has devoted the past five years to 3GPP standards that drive policy control architecture. Wricsson involves the ability to specify separate quotas per service or access type, or to define quotas common to both access types.

Wireless structural health monitoring system Literature review. By applying fair-usage policies, network service providers can minimize end-user abuse by the 10 percent of subscribers who consume 90 percent of network resources. Ian holds a B. With converged policy control, network service providers can use common functions and processes to control multiple access methods. Gary holds a B. Users are treated as part of an offering or group according to their subscription references.

He is currently responsible for releases of SAPC. The SAPC, which served as the centralized policy decision point. Telephone networks have evolved from dedicated links used mainly for narrowband telephony applications to a common broadband network, the resources of which are shared by a multitude of end users who compete with one another for quality of service QoS.
