Based on the Vedicis Software Service Gateway (SSG) platform, Vedicis Packet Data Network Gateway (PGW) is a high-performance, cost-efficient, virtualized element of the core network, incorporating DPI (Deep Packet Inspection).
It is designed to address the specific challenges posed by QoS protection and Data traffic monetization, allowing operators the flexibility to scale their network and take advantage of 3G and 4G traffic growth.

Interwork. Optimize. Monetize

Enhancing and optimizing constantly IP Broadband management is the key to success for Communication Service Providers, to keep infrastructure costs under control, monetize internet services and VoLTE, and improve Quality of Experience through service aware session management and monitoring.
Vedicis PGW software provides connectivity to Packet Data Networks like Internet, Intranet and IMS, supporting both 3GPP (3G and 4G) and non-3GPP (i.e. Wi-Fi) access networks. It assigns IP addresses to endpoints and manages packet routing, filtering and forwarding. By hosting the Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF) with an advanced DPI engine, it simplifies core network deployment, and enables subscriber- and application-based QoS management with advanced charging policies.
