Diameter: The Enabler of 4G Success
Catapulted by the use of mobile applications, the market has come to a point where service providers must rise to meet the challenges in signaling management. They must understand the centrality that the control plane plays in 4G networks to achieve both operational and business goals. Despite the promises of sophisticated services, huge bandwidth, tiered pricing, tuned policy and charging schemes, 4G technologies cannot be operational until service providers change their perception on signaling management and make it the number one priority. Built in Diameter from the ground up to fully support the different Diameter specifications, Traffix Signaling Delivery Controller is the only commercially available, field-proven product capable of meeting all the challenges that 4G presents to operators.
The Traffix SDC is a 3rd generation Diameter signaling solution that has unmatched product maturity in its three years as a commercial router and dozens of live deployments. Traffix began with its development of a robust Diameter stack, launched the market’s first Diameter router (DRA) in 2009 and followed with the multi-solution Signaling Delivery Controller (SDC) in 2011.
As the market’s only full Diameter solution combining 3GPP DRA, GSMA DEA and 3GPP IWF, the SDC platform goes far beyond industry standards’ requirements. With unbeaten performance and ROI ratios of value/cost and capacity/footprint, it benefits operators’ balance sheets as well as operational requirements. Technically surpassing all, the SDC has a long list of its competitive technological and economic advantages.
