Cisco Quantum Policy Suite for Wi-Fi

Cisco Quantum Policy Suite for Mobile

The Cisco Quantum Policy Suite for Wi-Fi is a carrier-grade policy and subscriber data management software solution that enables service providers to control, monetize, and personalize Wi-Fi offerings on their networks. The solution offers a platform for delivering a variety of new services that take advantage of intelligent Wi-Fi network attributes.

Features and Capabilities

The Cisco Quantum Policy Suite for Wi-Fi offers industry-leading performance, high availability, and disaster recovery. It simplifies the network architecture by using a single subscriber repository that draws from older data sources without conversion or revision.

The solution includes a virtualized policy platform. It provides real-time management of subscriber sessions, applications, and network resources based on service provider-configured business rules and subscriber data management.

With the Cisco Quantum Policy Suite for Wi-Fi, service providers can:

  • Rapidly define new service plans using customizable policy building blocks
  • Simplify policy control and service catalog management
  • Accelerate time to market for new service plans
  • Increase revenue through market segmentation
  • Improve customer satisfaction with personalized, tiered, and interactive services
  • Reduce operating costs

Cisco Quantum Policy Suite for Wi-Fi empowers service providers to quickly deploy value-added use cases such as the following.

Subscriber Authentication and Authorization

  • RADIUS and Diameter authentication protocols
  • Wireless Internet Service Provider roaming protocol 1.0 and 2.0
  • Transparent Automatic Logon (TAL)
  • 3GPP-compliant Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF)

Differentiated Services

  • Applying policy rules based on the service plan -- such as bandwidth speed, usage limits, number of logins, and more
  • Segmenting a subscriber base through service bundles and pricing

Quota and Usage Control

  • Creating time and/or usage-limited passes (for example, hour, day, week, and month-long passes)
  • Tracking and applying daily, weekly, or monthly billing cycle usage limits
  • Applying “pay-as-you-go” top-ups or downgrades when subscribers exceed usage limits
  • Controlling roaming overages and reducing customer bill shock

3GPP Mobile Data Offload

This cost-effectively reduces mobile data traffic congestion by offloading traffic through the Wi-Fi network

  • 3G Mobile/Long Term Evolution (LTE) integration with Gateway GPRS Support Node/Packet Data Serving Node (GGSN/PDSN) technology, including the Cisco ASR 5000 Evolved Packet Core (EPC)
  • Diameter/RADIUS Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) authentication
  • Diameter Gx/Gy Policy and Charging Control (PCC) for 3GPP LTE architecture functionality
