Alcatel-Lucent 5780 Dynamic Services Controller
The Alcatel-Lucent 5780 DSC is gaining traction driven by the company’s EPC and Smart Plan Builder. However, without stronger third party IT OCS integration, it will not be able to extend its reach beyond the domain of Alcatel-Lucent networks. (3/3/2014)

Cisco Quantum Policy Suite
Cisco’s QPS is accruing significantly more “horizontal” integration with acquired SON and analytics products. However with fewer “vertical” assets, will this be enough to continue its momentum as policy and charging become ever more tightly bound? (3/3/2014)

Comverse Data Management and Monetization Policy Manager
Comverse continues to enhance its integrated policy and charging solution with strong analytics and policy creation features, however its deployment footprint is limited and the solution still needs a flagship win to achieve validation. (3/3/2014)

Ericsson Service-Aware Policy Controller
The Ericsson Service-Aware Policy Controller is a leading and successful all-round PCRF product. However, its strongly network-centric approach may make it less attractive in the future as policy control becomes more marketing driven. (3/3/2014)

Huawei Unified Policy and Charging Controller
The Huawei UPCC is extensively deployed and has been enhanced to meet more marketing as well as network user requirements for policy control. However, at heart, it is still a network-oriented platform; will cloud-deployment help to change that? (3/3/2014)

Openet Policy Manager
With a strong drive towards integrated solutions, NFV and WiFi access control, Openet has a high profile in the policy control market. However, with a smaller installed base than leading players can it continue to stay “cutting edge”? (3/3/2014)

Oracle Tekelec Policy Server
The former Tekelec Policy Server is gaining an extensive new ecosystem as Oracle Policy Management. However, during integration, all its competitors have been busy and while still very strong, its true product status is now less easy to assess. (3/3/2014)
