Elitecore PCRF Optimization - Multi Access Networks (Use Cases)

Toll Free: 1800-300-03080

Elitecore PCRF enables operators to come up with plans for multi access networks wherein differential or converged plans can be offered to users as per their demand. This reduces the burden of operators to retain different policies and billing and charging for various networks for the same subscriber and reduce the complexity.

Elitecore PCRF offers Device specific plans by which operators can grab the opportunity and roll out device based plans as each device has different bandwidth requirements. Device management feature does IMEI/IMEISV based device identification. IMEI/IMEISV and other information available from it like TAC, Brand, Model, Hardware Type, Operating System and Year of Release is maintained in database and is cached at time of server up. On identification of any change of device by subscribers, notifications are provided for plan up gradation or to subscribe for new device plan.
