Policy 3.0 and Monetization Techniques: Reality vs. Hype

Purchase

The mobile telecom industry is migrating from a legacy voice centric business to WebScale mobile broadband firms. A key aspect is the transformation of the business model, policies, and pricing plans that are a direct outcome of the transformation. The implementation and execution is performed in the 3GPP Policy and Charging Control (PCC) platforms. These solutions have largely moved beyond the voice centric business model to predictive and relationship centric model. These are casually referred to as

• Policy 1.0, Network Centric

• Policy 2.0, Subscriber Centric

• Policy 3.0, Relationship Centric

Trends to note are M&A in this market and the increasing ties to BSS/OCS firms and infrastructure firms are now big participants in the ecosystem. PCC 3.0 is a key element for the mobile broadband firms of tomorrow, as well.
