Ulticom Launches the "Ulticom Diameter Signaling Controller"
MOUNT LAUREL, NJ, Feb 16, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Today, Ulticom, the industry leader in signaling solutions,
announces the availability of the Ulticom Diameter Signaling
Controller (DSC). Designed to address the challenges arising from the
explosion in mobile broadband usage, the Ulticom DSC provides Telecom
Equipment Manufacturers and Mobile Network Operators with a critical
tool to manage and optimize their packet core, IP Multimedia
Subsystem (IMS) and Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks.
Mobile data traffic is exploding and networks are struggling with
traffic loads unimaginable just a few short years ago. Network
Operators need solutions to tame this traffic growth by effectively
routing and controlling traffic flow to assure stability and
availability of the network. Aligning with emerging standards for the
control of Diameter traffic and the optimization of control plane
elements, the Ulticom DSC, provides a highly scalable, resilient and
programmable software based solution.
Benefiting from Ulticom's decades of experience in network signaling
and anchored by our globally deployed Signalware Diameter product,
solution providers and network operators can rest assured; the
Ulticom DSC will meet their exacting standards for reliability,
interoperability and scalability. The Ulticom DSC reduces the burden
of Diameter traffic management and load balancing, enabling solution
providers to focus their efforts on the overall solution. Common
deployment scenarios utilizing the Ulticom DSC include, but are not
limited to the following:
-- Deployable as an Advanced Load Balancer, the Ulticom DSC provides the
front end to nodes such as a Home Subscriber Server (HSS) or
Online/Offline Charging Server (OCS) in an IT style server-farm
architecture. This scenario allows for 100% service availability,
topology hiding and seamless capacity upgrades as subscriber demand
-- The Ulticom DSC can be deployed as a Diameter Routing Agent (DRA)
allowing a Mobile Network Operators to deploy multiple Policy and
Charging Rules Function (PCRF) nodes in their network in a scalable,
resilient, and cost effective fashion.
-- To avoid interconnecting all of the Diameter signaling elements in the
network, the Ulticom DSC can be deployed to provide Centralized
Routing as a Relay and/or Proxy Agent. The Ulticom DSC in this
situation greatly reduces the cost and complexity of managing the
Diameter signaling infrastructure.
"The new reality of always-on, data centric devices and the consumer
value shift from voice to connection driven data services, is
generating a tremendous amount of Diameter signaling traffic in the
LTE and IMS core networks," said Bruce Swail, President and CEO.
"Managing the Diameter signaling traffic and the associated
infrastructure is going to be the next great challenge faced by
Mobile Network Operators. This was a key factor in Ulticom's decision
to develop the DSC, which we consider to be crucial in areas like
policy control, converged charging, authentication, and subscriber
The Ulticom DSC is available today as a software solution on the Red
Hat and CentOS Linux operating systems. For additional information on
