There’s a policy for that.

With the pervasiveness of mobile devices, the Internet of Things, and 5G, your network has to be ready for what’s next. BIG-IP Policy Enforcement Manager (PEM) is a policy charging enforcement function that gives you the network flexibility and control you need while delivering a reliable customer experience.

WHITE PAPER
Enabling Policy in the New Mobile Architecture

Drive monetization.

Implement services based on subscriber level, according to plan, location, and device. In addition to recognizing who should access what and when, you’ll be able to gather data with network visibility. Create relevant plan tiers and offer new, over-the-top services based on user behavior patterns—then use BIG-IP PEM to enforce those plans and services.

SOLUTION PROFILE
Optimize and Monetize the Network 

Improve subscriber experience.

Ultimately, your customers need your network to be fast, reliable, and available. Through smarter traffic steering, more sophisticated policy management, and improvements in network functions, BIG-IP PEM leads to happier customers. And because happy customers are stickier customers, you’ll see reduced churn and better revenue.

Policy management is only part of the story.

F5 solutions help you manage your network in a variety of ways, consolidated on a unified platform. A single system streamlines your management processes, helping your network run more efficiently.
