With a large number of machines being able to communicate within themselves, machine to machine (M2M) services are gaining prominence. In future, companies will have to lay down plans to monetize the unprecedented growth in mobile data traffic and multimedia applications that use M2M technologies.
The M2M services need scalability and flexibility to operate efficiently and bring in profits. Looking to get these qualities from its M2M deployments, Jasper Wireless has deployed Tekelec’s Policy Server (PCRF).
The Tekelec Policy Server product allows users to set policy rules for various applications. It allows users to provide seamless broadband communications and solve problems like Radio Access Network (RAN) congestion.
According to industry analyst and consulting firm Analysys Mason, there will be one billion connected devices by 2021. Companies need to have a robust mechanism in place to make sure that this sea of connectivity works seamlessly, and firm rules are set to transmit information between these devices.
Tekelec’s PCRF helps users to set rules for communication between various devices. It understands that different machines need to have different set of rules and allows users the flexibility to set their own set of rules for their machine.
“Jasper’s services are helping mobile operators capitalize on an M2M revenue opportunity that will grow to nearly $1.2 trillion by 2020 according to the GSMA,” said Doug Suriano, CTO of Tekelec. “Tekelec’s Policy Server will ensure that Jasper can scale its deployment of connected devices and services quickly and profitably.”
Recently, South Korean mobile operator KT selected Tekelec’s Policy Server. According to KT it will use the policy server for its LTE and 3G networks.
