Diameter traffic in the signaling and control plane of all-IP based networks is guaranteed to continue to increase, forcing operators to utilize Diameter signaling controllers to more efficiently manage and scale that traffic. As LTE networks expand, driving even more traffic to the network, the Diameter signaling controller market will take off rapidly.
Diameter Signaling Router centralizes routing, traffic management and load-balancing tasks to create an architecture that enables IMS and LTE networks to grow incrementally to support increasing service and traffic demands. The Diameter solution provides protocol mediation and interworking functions that allow to manage 2G/3G-to-LTE and LTE-to-LTE roaming seamlessly. And, as the first point of contact at the network’s edge, the DSR is the ideal vantage point from which to defend network against potential overloads or attacks.
NexNet Solutions offers an intelligent signaling framework that streamlines and routes all Diameter-based IP signaling communication within the LTE and IMS networks. It is compliant to IETF RFC 3588, 3GPP Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) and GSMA Diameter Edge agent (DEA) guidelines and enables simplify complex mesh and improve network performance, secure network topology and management through:
Improve IMS and LTE Diameter signaling performance and scalability
Avoid vendor lock-in with the ability to interwork multivendor endpoints
Reduce the cost of adding new network nodes
Improve security and simplify routing at network interconnect point
Support IMS Subscriber Locator Function (SLF) capability
