Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) In the Evolved Packet Core (EPC), the Policy Charging and

Rules Function (PCRF) is used to control the policy rules. Today the PCRF plays a significant role in IMS, 3G and 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks, and handles policy control over which network services, QoS and bandwidth a subscriber can access. The Valid8 PCRF Simulator enables testing of the Gx interface towards the PCEF, Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN) or Packet Gateway (PGW).
