Traffix and Oracle Join Forces to Offer Turnkey Telecommunications-ready Solution
Excerpt from joint white paper: How Traffix Systems Optimized Its LTE Diameter Load Balancing and Routing Solutions Using Oracle Hardware and Software, March 2011
The quantity of signaling in LTE core networks is unlike anything telecommunications operators have seen in the past. It is estimated that there will be up to 25 times more signaling per subscriber compared to legacy and intelligent networks.
To address these challenges, operators are turning to LTE network elements, such as Diameter signaling routers and load balancers, to manage the growing quantity of signaling. These advanced signaling routers and load balancers enable smooth and rapid service introduction, network scaling, and hiding of internal network topologies, thereby increasing the reliability and redundancy of the network. Traffix Diameter Router and Traffix Diameter Load Balancer are used by operators migrating to advanced LTE, Evolved High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA+), IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), and other networks to tackle routing, scalability, and management needs.
Using Oracle’s Sun SPARC Enterprise T-Series family of servers, Traffix Diameter Router and Traffix Diameter Load Balancer have achieved high levels of sustained throughput, ultra low latency, and linear scalability by taking advantage of the Oracle Solaris 10 operating system. Key Oracle Solaris features used include these unique and innovative technologies: Oracle Solaris ZFS, Oracle Solaris DTrace, Oracle Solaris Service Management Facility (SMF), and built-in virtualization with Oracle Solaris Containers.
Built on the solid foundation of Oracle Solaris Cluster, Oracle Solaris, and Sun SPARC Enterprise T-Series servers from Oracle, Traffix solution offers availability and scalability and enables the deployment of a complete, turnkey telecommunications-ready solution.
