GENBAND also offers a Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) that centralizes signaling and LTE Diameter routing, traffic management, and load balancing tasks and a Signal Transfer Point (STP) for cost-effective carrier-class signaling.
Subscriber demand for bandwidth-hungry apps has accelerated the use of mobile services and data on mobile network. Diameter signaling—which acts as the central nervous system of IMS and LTE networks in controlling voice and data sessions and supporting traffic policies—is exploding in volume and complexity. GENBAND's DSC (Diameter Signaling Controller) assists service providers in addressing the explosion of Diameter signaling volume within the IMS and LTE core; and ensuring security, routing, and interworking for Diameter message exchanges within and across IMS and LTE networks for roaming purposes.
Today’s networks are expanding exponentially to address the increase in traffic due to mobile services, network convergence, and new applications. Despite the recent introduction of technologies such as Diameter signaling, service providers will need to maintain heterogeneous networks for many years.
