Boston, MA and Denver, CO – September 2, 2010 -
Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leading supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile broadband service providers worldwide and BroadHop Inc., the industry's deployment leader in policy management and control solutions for service providers, announced today that they have successfully completed integration and interoperability testing between Allot Service Gateway acting as an intelligent Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF) and BroadHop’s Quantum Network Suite, the industry’s first fully virtualized Policy Management application acting as the Policy & Charging Rules Function (PCRF).

- Offer tiered services and highly personalized service packages
- Better manage and prioritize VoIP related traffic
- Enforce sophisticated Fair Use policies based on 3GPP Release 9’s Gx Usage Monitoring
- Dynamically adapt to changing subscriber and quality of service (QoS) conditions mid-session including network congestion, changing subscriptions or depleting quotas
