Policy and Access Control
Make the most of your network resources
Today, mobile network operators are rapidly evolving their core networks towards an all-IP infrastructure for both voice and data services. In addition, all internal and external communications between 3GPP elements will soon be based on IPv6. But also devices evolve and they require new architectures.
This market is often hard to predict, and some vendors’ decisions significantly impact operators’ evolutionary progress and speed. Just imagine device manufacturers adding VoLTE capability to the next version of their popular product, the push to provide SIP functions and the corresponding PCRF interfaces could pose a real challenge.
These exciting new developments influence the control plane, requiring authentication and policy control elements that are reliable and robust, as well as flexible and lean.

Data management in the cloud
Always connected, always online, always available
Because the Internet is part of our daily life and mobile Internet devices are used more widely than ever, operators are facing a new challenge: Data sessions must remain active. Video streaming and audio/video calls via data connection at high quality are basic expectations of all users – and operators need to ensure this service continuity.
The goal is to provide 100 percent availability, but how can operators achieve this? HW and SW failures are inevitable. Regular, static backups might help in restoring the network elements but cannot ensure session continuity. Legacy systems with a stateful front-end concept based on bare metal solutions can’t keep up with current expectations.
The cloud challenges the telco world to upgrade its architecture – into a lean, stateless solution with the ability to adapt to rapidly changing environments.
Siemens Common Repository
is a telco-grade, in-memory database for all data, giving network operators a much faster solution for standardizing data management in modern network elements. It can be expanded to virtually any required size under load and stores data redundantly in a highly distributed memory system.
PSA Lite - Provisioning and Mediation
is a lightweight provisioning and service activation solution with famous capabilities on provisioning interface mediation and emulation allowing exchange of network elements of different vendors easily without affecting the Business Support System layer.
Atos HSS (Home Subscriber Server)
is a lightweight stateless frontend solution that supports both EPC and IMS systems and complies with the relevant 3GPP standards. The HSS-FE uses Siemens Common Repository as backend for subscriber and session data. It supports subscriber data for 4G (LTE), IMS, SMS, 2G/3G, Wi-Fi and other non-3GPP and IoT use cases. Additionally, it also provides support for non-subscriber related data including definitions of APN configurations, QoS profiles for default bearers, Application Servers and authorizations.
