Infonetics Research: Competition heating up in policy management market as role of policy evolves

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 14, 2011) - A new whitepaper, The Changing Role of Policy Management, published by analyst firm Infonetics Research, examines the ways in which policy management is emerging as a key tool for network operators as they roll out new services and capabilities that require new logic and control at the edges of their networks.

"Operators in emerging markets are investing in policy solutions, often in conjunction with convergent charging systems, to create innovative loyalty programs, payment options, and value-added services as a way to combat high subscriber churn rates," notes Shira Levine, directing analyst for next gen OSS and policy at Infonetics Research and author of the whitepaper.

The 6-page white paper, The Changing Role of Policy Management, which can be downloaded at, summarizes the drivers behind policy management market growth; regional trends, including regulation, network optimization and innovation; policy deployments for fixed vs. wireless networks; the increasing role of IT and marketing departments in policy decision-making; a look at how one company, Elitecore in India, is addressing the fast-shifting market; and a strategic outlook.
