NetVertex PCRF (Policy and Charging Rules Function)

Use Cases
A Service Aware Intelligent Policy Manager

Elitecore NetVertex 6.6 is a 3GPP 11 compliant next-generation PCRF designed to meet the evolving CSP requirements of service agility, data monetization and process optimization that today serve as a key differentiator for the operators to enhance their customer experience. NetVertex 6.6 is aligned to policy 3.0 going beyond the legacy approach to a relationship centric monetization, it supports advance use cases including service wise FUP, quota sharing/differential quota between multiple access-network/devices, shared wallet, VoLTE, top-up plans, multi-tenancy for wireless/wireline or Wi-Fi networks enabling new service channels for the operator.

NetVertex easily works in a converged environment of multi-protocols and multi-network with highest number of integrations and proven interoperability with the top 3 tier 1 multi vendors' for GGSN, DPI and P-GW along with partner ecosystems worldwide. It offers GUI based, flexible architecture with much simpler policy creations, high scalability with DDF functionality allowing subscriber split across multiple SPRs and is deployable on any COTS hardware – Virtualized, on-cloud or in-premise.

Why NetVertex PCRF?

A dynamic, intuitive and having real time capability, NetVertex PCRF enables operators reduce subscriber churn, the cost associated with non business data traffic and harness to increase effectiveness through monitoring subscriber usage pattern, network contention, manage bandwidth and enabling usage based charging.

Based on a common framework

NetVertex PCRF is based on Elitecore CSM platform, A Single indigenously developed Radius and Diameter stack.  It easily can accommodate multiple technological advances like 2G,3G, 4G/LTE, WiFi etc. over its convergent framework with highest number of integrations & proven interoperability with the Top 3 Tier 1 multi vendors’ for GGSN, DPI & P-GW along with partner ecosystems worldwide. Based on a common diameter frame, ensures enhancements in diameter interface can be reflected in all products no need for separate development for PCRF, thus reduces complexity and time to market for new technologies and service roll outs when operators expands services.

Integrated Policy and charging

Integrated Policy and Charging via standard based Sy with a centralized product catalogue, single SPR and mobile self care enables operators to easily roll out new offers to market and monetize from them.

Operators can also opt for NetVertex Pre-integrated Carrier Grade DPI solution along with PCRF it is Based on standard PCC architecture, Tight Integration with NetVertex PCRF over standard Gx interface enables dynamic decision making and offers real time network intelligence.

IMS and VoLTE Services

NetVertex PCRF offers separate configuration module to manage IMS related packages enabling operators quickly roll out new next generation services such as VoLTE without interrupting exiting services. Operators can configure a variety of services they want to deliver as a part of an IMS subscription.


NetVertex has enhanced support for multi-tenancy. Operators can define multiple groups and roles in the NetVertex platform and assign group and roles relationship with staff.

Enhanced Audit Support

Micro level CR tracking: Audit report is very crucial for any setup. The new enhanced audit support will allow operator to track each and every change any configuration. Operator/Admin staff will be able to see what has been changed clearly.

Smart Monetization and Personalization

It also offers NetVertex Policy Analytics an intelligent platform for operators to monitor and analyze usage patterns, revenue patterns, traffic patterns, network performance, subscriber preferences etc through dashboard based reporting.

Cloud and Virtualization ready

NetVertex PCRF is now virtualization ready and available on Cloud as SPI (SaaS, PaaS, Iaas) model for CSP on a Pay as you go.  The Pretested and Preconfigured NetVertex Policy Control Solution comes bundled with integrated NetVertex Policy analytics and on board EMS system.
