Cloud Core Policy Controller

Cloud Core Policy Controller is the commercial realization of a centralized policy controller for 5G and legacy networks

Cloud Core Policy Controller (CCPC) implements the centralized policy controller in the 5G network. It includes 3GPP PCF functionality plus a number of added value features.  CCPC provides the tools to optimize the service delivery settings dynamically to fulfill the commercial service requirements and deliver the expected Quality of Experience.

CCPC includes different kind of policies: session-management policies, access policies, mobility policies and UE policies.

CCPC allows operators to deploy dual mode EPC/5GC policy control service resource selection (PCF/PCRF) with single O&M and orchestration.

The Policy Controller is included in SAPC (Service Aware Policy Controller) and CCPC (Cloud Core Policy Controller) Ericsson products. SAPC is the virtualized version while CCPC is the containerized version, including both PCRF (Policy and Charging Rules Function, for 2G/3G/4G) and PCF (Policy Control Function for 5G). Both of them are based on the leading Ericsson SAPC product. SAPC product includes EPC-NSSF (early slice selection based on GW selection), A-PCRF (radio-frequency selection), PCRF (session management policies). CCPC includes AM-PCF for access and mobility control and SM-PCF for session-management control.
