Vedicis Content Smart Switch (CoSS) is a software platform running on standard Intel servers deployed in the data plane of IP broadband networks (for any access technologies of fixed and mobile telcos) to deliver
•Visibility with data traffic analysis and classification
• Control with actions on bandwidth and volume
• Monetization with charging enforcement
In 3GPP environment, the CoSS acts as a PCEF or TDF.
Multiple security features such as software bypass and platform synchronization for clustering exist to meet carrier-grade requirements.
Traffic Analysis & Classification
The CoSS embeds a powerful and configurable DPI engine to identify every user's traffic and their usage of applications and protocols, OTT, BGP Autonomous Systems or websites. This information is mapped with device and location information.
Enforcement & Policy Control
Traffic shaping, QoS marking, filtering or blocking, traffic redirect towards a specific portal, HTTP header enrichment are various actions that can be enforced based on the CoSS configuration or through interworking with a policy control platform.
Metering & Charging
The CoSS performs accurate multi-criteria traffic measures and enforce charging and billing policies regarding quota management so that a subscriber's traffic is blocked, shaped or redirected towards a captive portal for credit refill when quota is reached.
