Panelists Address "Mobile Packet Core Evolution: What Impact on DPI & Policy"

MARLBOROUGH, MA and MAIDENHEAD, UK--(Marketwire - March 17, 2010) -  Camiant Inc., the leading provider of policy control technology today announced that Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Susie Kim Riley will join industry executives from Allot Communications, Bytemobile, Cricket Communications and Nokia Siemens Networks at the CTIA Wireless 2010 Light Reading panel debate on "Mobile Packet Core Evolution: What Impact on DPI and Policy". The panel is being held from 1:15PM-2:15PM on Wednesday, March 24, 2010 in Room N261 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and is being moderated by Heavy Reading Senior Analyst, Patrick Donegan.

Policy control and management tools have been widely deployed over the past 12 months, especially in mobile networks, but the use of these tools could both deepen and change as wireless operators start the transition to true all-IP networks. Centralized 3G architectures are being superseded by more distributed architectures such as 3GPP*'s Evolved Packet Core, affecting the relationship between the mobile packet core and the policy environment. 

Panelists will discuss how the balance between integration and inter-working with the policy and DPI elements are affected when standards decompose the mobile packet core as well as distribute its functionality out from the center towards the edge. The panel will examine the evolution of the mobile packet core and debate the merits of different ways of supporting the operator's DPI and policy requirements.

Joining Camiant's Susie Kim Riley are:

  • Jay Klein, CTO, Allot Communications
  • Joel Brand, VP of Product Management, Bytemobile
  • Chris Demange, Sr. Director, Network Engineering, Cricket Communications
  • Alkarim Haji, Head of Mobile Packet Core, North America, Nokia Siemens Networks

"Mobile network operators are struggling to meet the demand and surge in data traffic," said Susie Kim Riley, Camiant Founder and Chief Technology Officer. "Distributing enforcement functions in the network can help networks scale and help manage performance and costs. It is the policy control solution that is the glue that ties the different enforcement functions together and enables the operator to have a coordinated policy treatment in the network."
