- Reduce network congestion
- Ensure service availability/delivery even when network is congested
- Enhance customer satisfaction and reduce churn
Whether providing fixed or mobile connectivity, broadband service providers must constantly struggle to deliver fair and consistent QoE to all network subscribers, while refraining from making further investments in network resources. No single user is to be discriminated against, yet at the same time, none are to be allowed to abuse shared network resources at the expense of others. Fair use management ensures that no individual subscriber disrupts the service provided to others. It does so by managing throughput and subscriber QoE on the basis of congestion thresholds across the entire network.
