Wireless structural health monitoring system Literature review. Users are treated as part of an offering or group according to their subscription references.

The SAPC collects the reported volume in a user accumulation counter that permits control of subscriber usage and allows for actions to be taken when subscribers exceed their usage limits. Market view and vision The market for policy control is very active, especially for wireless access following the introduction of mobile broadband.

With this network architecture, the SAPC can, when it receives an accounting start, stop, or interim message, detect when user sessions have been established, terminated or changed. The SAPC component makes policy decisions for wireline and wireless accesses, providing a centralized control that is based on a single subscription.

During the past 10 years he has focused on network performance and management, policy control, and system management. Javier holds an M. Documents Flashcards Grammar checker. During the course of the sessions, the user subscription was reassigned through the GUI to the Silver group.

After reaching this limit, the subscriber was redirected to a web portal where the quota could be topped up. For example, they could be divided into Gold, Silver and Bronze groups for all the types of access they are granted.


The converged approach gives added value. Aaron Mar joined Ericsson in when Redback Networks was acquired.

As a sapd towards minimizing costs and network complexity, network service providers should assess the wireline and wireless network domains to identify synergies and redundant functions. This approach provides all the required functionality coming from both wireless ericwson wireline access Figure 1. PCs for monitoring usage and QoS of user sessions initiated from both access networks. Policy control plays a pivotal role in regulating this new reality. Performance Analysis, Evaluation, and Applications Journal.

The SAPC also supports fair usage functionality by extracting wireline and wireless access information. The SAPC, which served as the centralized policy decision point. Examples include converged bandwidth control for wireless access, wireline access or both.

Digital Communications Spring This gives network service providers the tools to differentiate between user categories that can be defined across accesses; and converged fair usage control based on time, volume or both. This category of users is entitled to high QoS over both wireline and wireless accesses.

It also supports connection to the network application layer via standard protocols or using web service technology for easy integration with application functions that do not implement 3GPP or TISPAN protocols. Apart from incorporating new functional features, emphasis is put on operations and aspects of management. Examples of actions are restricting access, downgrading QoS, redirecting, declining sessions, and notifying the subscriber via text message or e-mail.

This involves the ability to specify separate quotas per service or access type, or to define quotas common to both access types.

The effect of the downgrade could be seen in the monitoring PCs. During the demonstration, the subscriber initiated concurrent wireline and wireless sessions.

By applying fair-usage policies, network service providers can minimize end-user abuse by the 10 percent of subscribers who consume 90 percent of network resources. Convergence also provides a strong value proposition, by reducing total cost of ownership TCO and introducing new revenue streams via a futureproof investment. In addition, the introduction of subscriber- and serviceaware control gives network service providers the ability to optimize network performance.

This allows for seamless enduser movement from the wireline network to the wireless network or vice versaand sets the stage for true multiaccess networks. The SAPC communicates with wireless and wireline access gateways using standard or de facto standard protocols. With converged policy control, network service providers can use common functions and processes to control multiple access methods. In this new context, network service providers are striving to provide a high-performance network that delivers highly rewarding multimedia experiences, encourages long-term customer loyalty, and supports marketdifferentiating services.

A network edge element the multi-access edge or MAE provides connectivity to the internet, in addition to supporting a diverse set of services.

Proof of concept becomes product Given the success of the SAPC demonstration at the Mobile World Congressthe next logical step is product commercialization.

He has worked in a variety of areas including design, architecture and system management. She then obtained an M.

He has worked in the telecom industry for over 15 years in the areas of design and architecture, and holds several patents in policy management and control.
