Improve network performance through effective policy management.
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 enforcement function that gives you the network flexibility and control you need while delivering a reliable customer experience.
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.
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.
