Meeting such competitive standards requires taking maximum advantage from all available network resources. The PCC solution is designed for precisely this purpose, as it:

 

  • Empowers the operator to offer innovative, differentiating services that meet customers’ needs and expectations;
  • Allows the shaping of bandwidth according to the operator’s policy;
  • Optimizes internet connections and radio capacities, giving priority to customers that are prepared to pay more for these resources;
  • Delivers excellent levels of performance from the data network and reduces the damaging effects of abusive usage;
  • Acts as a key feature in any diversified offer of data plans designed to match the specificities of the mobile telecommunications data market;
