WATERLOO, ON -- Sandvine, (TSX:SVC) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators, today announced that in the second fiscal quarter of 2015, three mobile operators selected Sandvine’s universal Policy Charging and Rules Function (PCRF) to enable a diverse set of use cases for their networks.

Two of the orders received came from regional North American mobile operators, one of which plans to use Sandvine’s PCRF as an essential component of their upcoming VoLTE rollout to provide guaranteed quality of service (QoS) for voice calls, while the other regional operator will be using Sandvine’s PCRF to enforce data quotas for their prepaid subscribers.

The third order received was from a tier-1 operator in Eastern Europe who will be using Sandvine’s PCRF for a number of use cases focusing on service creation. Some of these include application-based plans that allow subscribers to purchase access to individual applications of their choosing, a “turbo boost” button which will allow subscribers to temporarily increase the speed of their LTE connection, and family plans to enable an account to share monthly data usage between multiple users.

Sandvine’s Service Delivery Engine (SDE) provides communications service providers (CSPs) with the industry’s only universal PCRF – a policy controller that supports the 3GPP (mobile) and PCMM (cable) standards as well as other interfaces such as RADIUS CoA and REST – in order to facilitate deployment in any mobile, fixed or converged network. This deployment flexibility allows operators to enable innovative subscriber services such as shared data, data rollover, sponsored data and consistent policy control in any network or across multiple networks simultaneously, using a single PCRF provided by Sandvine.
