MARLBOROUGH, Mass. and MAIDENHEAD, U.K. -- Camiant, Inc., the leading provider of policy control and application assurance technology, today announced that Vodafone Hungary has successfully deployed Camiant's Multimedia Policy Engine (MPE) in record time. This is the first deployment of a 3GPP Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF)* compliant system in a Vodafone network. The implementation, which was completed in four months, was a component of Camiant partner Starent Networks' (NASDAQ: STAR) packet core deployment, providing Vodafone Hungary with the ability to ensure that their subscribers have the highest QoS (Quality of Service) over its broadband network.

Camiant's MPE, using 3GPP compliant interfaces in conjunction with Starent's ST-40 high capacity platform, provides Vodafone Hungary with dynamic bandwidth control for users that exceed their monthly limits. Traditionally, mobile operators have charged overage fees or stopped users from further using the network when they exceed a monthly usage cap. At Vodafone, Camiant's MPE enforces a moderated bandwidth level for these users but only during peak hours. This allows Vodafone's 3G users to get maximum value from their service but not at the expense of other users on the network.

"Mobile broadband is a critical part of our growth strategy," said Péter Török, Mobile Broadband Senior Manager of Vodafone Hungary. "Camiant's MPE technology allows us to differentiate our 3G services in the market, giving us a great competitive advantage and enables us to assure that our subscribers have the best possible end-user experience."
