Waterloo, ON; September 15, 2017 – Sandvine, (TSX:SVC) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators, today announced that the mobile business of a converged tier-1 North American communications service provider (CSP) has selected Sandvine’s Service Delivery Engine as its fully virtualized Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF). The implementation, to be run on OpenStack, will support millions of mobile subscribers and will represent one of the first fully virtualized PCRFs to be deployed in the North American market at this scale.
With the implementation, the tier-1 CSP will support end-to-end IMS/VoLTE, including E911 support, and has identified a number of other potential policy use cases to support innovative subscriber services. Sandvine’s flexible and intuitive SandScript policy language makes for rapid and easy configuration of its PCRF, creating an ideal DevOps environment for quickly implementing multiple new use cases.
“The CSP wanted to work with a vendor that had a product and approach that let them build each use case collaboratively. SandScript is the ‘policy language of DevOps’, so it will let us work with the CSP in a number of two-week sprints to get their use cases delivered much more quickly and effectively than competing approaches,” said Tom Donnelly, Sandvine’s COO Sales and Global Services.
