Overview of ATIS
Policy Management (PM)
 ATIS launched the PM Focus Group of the
Technology and Operations (TOPS) Council of the
Board in June 2009.
 Business-driven methodology

Standards Landscape Analysis
Action Plan
 Assessment and recommendations completed in
June 2010.

Policy Management –
Problem Statement
 Policy interworking between domains is necessary
for service providers to offer consistent services to
users independent of access technology, or
access service provider.
 Current policy standards have independent,
divergent approaches for fixed access, mobile
access, transport, border control and Home
Networking. Lack of convergence has capital
expenditures (CAPEX) and operational
expenditures (OPEX) implications, and impedes
service velocity.

Policy Management –
Problem Statement
 Growing data volumes highlights the need for
policy to maximize effective use of resources.
 User’s in-home networks are increasingly
complex, but decoupled from Service Provider
policies.
4
Current Activities
 3GPP Policy Charging and Control (PCC)
increasingly provides reference for policy
architectures.
 Activity underway to define policy interworking
(e.g., 3GPP/BBF workshop and joint work).
 Ongoing enhancements to 3GPP PCC
architecture.
 ATIS Packet Technologies and Systems
Committee (PTSC) study of converged policy
architectures.

Strategic Direction
 Policy interworking between domains is being
addressed => starting point is 3GPP PCC.
 Converged policy architecture is important
strategic direction, but need consensus on timing.
 Optional policy management for user’s in-home
networks.
 Initial focus on policy management for network
resources, moving to policy management focused
on applications as next step.
7
Next Steps/Actions
 Ongoing policy interworking definition is
underway.
 Requirements and specifications for
converged policy architecture is being
studied by ATIS.
 Study of requirements for Applicationfocused policy management is planned.
