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.
GENBAND's DSC centralizes signaling and LTE Diameter routing, traffic management, and load balancing tasks to scale and grow IMS and LTE networks incrementally and cost effectively, while increasing resiliency and reliability to support subscribers' ever increasing service and broadband demands. It supports multiple standards based functions and applications in IMS and LTE networks — all on a single unified platform with centralized management.
In addition to providing the standalone functions in LTE network, GENBAND's Diameter Signaling Controller is integrated with GENBAND’s leading SBC (Session Border Controller), providing mobile service providers and IPX carriers an integrated SIP and Diameter solutions to enable secure, seamless, and scalable global VoLTE and data LTE roaming. The combined solution, delivered on a common hardware platform, provides context-aware intelligent routing, scalable handling of SIP and Diameter traffic, and secure, seamless connectivity to an IMS/LTE network resulting in a simple, cost-effective deployment of rich LTE voice and data services.
