Dynamic Services Controller

Enable policy control and enhance the customer experience across wireline, wireless, or converged networks

The Nokia Dynamic Services Controller (DSC) provides carrier-grade policy control and data service personalization capabilities. This software platform helps you deliver innovative services and open up new revenue streams.

Based on our Agile Rules Technology (A.R.T.), the DSC combines ease of use and flexibility with unrivaled performance, high scalability, and maintainability. It is available in hardware-based and virtualized configurations.

The DSC platform supports two separately licensed software modules:

  • The Policy Control Module provides the Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) for mobile networks. It also offers concurrent support for RADIUS-based policy control for fixed networks.
  • Smart Plan Builder lets you create contextual, segmented, and personalized data offers while supporting user controls that simplify the mobile data experience.

The DSC has been proven through field integration and interoperability testing with a wide range of Policy and Charging Control (PCC), IMS/VoLTE, and 3G/4G Mobile Packet Core components. It is pre-integrated with many Nokia solutions and provides support for network functions virtualization (NFV).

A previous area the DSC supported was diameter routing using the Diameter Control Point, which is now reflected in the new product Dynamic Diameter Engine (DDE).
