BroadHop's Quantum Network Suite is the first and only policy management solution tested on the Cisco UCS platform that delivers a virtualized policy layer, enabling service providers to take full advantage of highly efficient and economical virtualized environments.
Service providers continue to seek alternate means to effectively ease the pressure on their networks caused by increasing mobile data traffic. BroadHop's Quantum Network Suite delivers immediate relief by offering the industry's only, fully virtualized PCRF. Coupled with Cisco UCS's virtualized server and network architecture, the integrated solution allows service providers to simplify and accelerate deployments by eliminating server-bound load balancing, reduce hardware footprint by drastically reducing requirements for redundancy, and roll-out new services and reallocate resources at dramatically faster speeds. The combined offering of UCS and the Quantum Network Suite empowers service providers with seamless, on demand service scale out, embedded high availability and clustering, and the agility to meet market demand for more bandwidth and service innovation.
