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.

Ericsson's policy management market leadership has been recognized by leading industry analyst Current Analysis in their most recent evaluation of the Policy Management market.
As their report says: “The Ericsson Service-Aware Policy Controller (SAPC) is a leader among compared policy control solutions. Ericsson’s SAPC includes extensive wireless access network and backhaul integration in addition to the company’s own online charging system (OCS)/offline charging system (OFCS), policy control enforcement function (PCEF)/deep packet inspection (DPI) and subscriber data management (SDM) products. These capabilities provide the SAPC with an unparalleled IP network reach supported with strong 3GPP interface compliance and wide, although unnamed, third-party interoperability credentials. Ericsson continues to optimize its policy assets to provide high availability and carrier-grade end-to-end support for VoLTE services and NFV/cloud adoption. Over 200 customer engagements validate Ericsson’s technology, providing the company with deep experience and ongoing exposure to the evolving requirements of the policy control market.”
