Camiant's Multimedia Policy Engine (MPE) provides the telecommunications group with the ability to ensure the highest quality user experience and delivery of broadband services. Initial deployments at several of the telecom group's operating companies representing over 50 million subscribers have already been completed.

After completing a comprehensive review of competitive solutions, the company chose Camiant's MPE as the best in class policy and charging rules function (PCRF) to meet the diverse needs of its global operating companies. These operators are looking to increase network intelligence for real-time control of network resources and the ability to proactively optimize capacity, all while offering compelling new services, applications and pricing.

"This designation as a preferred PCRF provider provides Camiant with the opportunity to gain significant market share in the wireless policy server market."

The MPE is an intelligent platform for applying operator-defined business rules that determine which customers, tiers and/or applications receive bandwidth priority, at what charge and how much they may use. This real-time management of network resources can balance network utilization and ensure the appropriate conditions for any application, providing an infrastructure for cost control and new revenue opportunities.

"With major customers such as this global telecommuncations group, it is truly gratifying to aid the development of broadband services throughout the world," said Ed Delaney, Camiant's President and CEO.
