Tata Communications’ Hosted Policy Engine, a policy control platform, which incorporates Tango Telecom’s market leading Policy Control solution, enables operators to successfully monetise the growing demand for mobile data, and reinforce subscriber loyalty while optimising use of their network resources.  With an extensive range of revenue-generating use cases available out of the box, the hosted policy control platform enables mobile operators to improve their profitability while enhancing their subscribers’ experience with dynamic, innovative and personalised data services. As operators continue to come under pressure to increase mobile data revenues while struggling with inflexible and ineffective policy control platforms, the Hosted Policy Engine offers an ideal solution. It empowers operators to rapidly grow their mobile data revenues by offering all the benefits of a best of breed policy solution coupled with the resource savings, service velocity and flexibility of a low-risk hosted model.  “Our goal with the Hosted Policy Engine is to provide a pre-integrated best-of-breed policy engine that delivers economies of scale for MNOs. The collaboration with Tango Telecom’s industry leading Policy and Charging Control component will enable operators to implement policies based on subscriber, service tier, usage and context in real-time. This means operators can dynamically control network resources and react quickly to changing subscriber demands, optimising data revenue for the operator,” said Tim Sherwood, Vice President, Mobile Segment Strategy, Tata Communications.  “The key message here is reduced complexity, reduced cost and reduced time to market to roll out advanced mobile data services. As operators move towards NFV and away from traditional CAPEX procurement and in-network deployment models which can be both time and cost-prohibitive and inflexible to change, the Hosted Policy Engine encompasses all their current and future policy control requirements in quick to deploy, low risk secure cloud-based solution,” explains Rory O’Toole, EVP of Alliances, Tango Telecom. “Outsourcing their policy management infrastructure means that operators can stay competitive by focussing on driving revenues, increasing market share and improving the bottom line.”  To meet with Tango Telecom’s team of policy experts to discuss this partnership and other developments in the Policy and Charging Control space, please visit Tango Telecom at Mobile World Congress 2014, 5MR20, located in hall 5.
