A Tier 2 Wireless service provider is phasing out its Broadband Mass Merchant (BBMM) charging system to 3GPP Policy Control and Charging (PCC) architecture, in its plans for 4G LTE migration.
CeleniumSM consultant lead interoperability testing of Openet OCS and PCRF into Customer’s EPC, as well as integrating, expanding and supporting the cutover of the PCRF in production sites. Part of the assignment was to architect and design a load balance solution that acts as a frontend to the PCRF server pool, using BIG-IP F5 hardware
Serving as the Customer liaison between internal team and vendors, our SME reviewed and developed test requirements as well as solutions to support migration plans. Then implemented the architecture by installing and integrating PCRF nodes, SAN, configuring Brocade Fiber Channel switches and F5 load balancers in the Customer’s production data centers. Thereafter, the PCRF Trial and Deployment Test results, as well as Production Builds were documented.
