Policy and Charging Rules Function

N-PCRF is an advanced policy and charging rules management solution based on the 3GPP Policy and Charging Control (PCC) architecture. 3GPP, a global initiative, defines this architecture to support dynamic quality of service (QoS) and charging management.
To enable service differentiation and generate new revenue streams in today’s fiercely competitive marketplace, CSPs need policy control capabilities that address increasing demand for data traffic. Robust policy control is vital to make this possible. With flexible, sophisticated policy control and charging capabilities, N-PCRF enables CSPs to seamlessly manage data explosion, accelerate time-to-market, and deliver a personalized data experience.
