PEP – Policy Enforcement Point

To support policy in IP networks a simple architecture based upon a policy server and policy aware network routers is deployed. The policy server is termed the PDF (Policy Decision Function) and uses a protocol such as COPS to communicate policy information to the PEF. Using policy information access, network resources etc are allocated to the network user.
