As LTE roaming quickly becomes a reality, there is a need for an edge device (Diameter edge agent) to concentrate multiple IP connections between IPX’s and roaming partners as well as to provide security and topology hiding. The LTE landscape According to the GSMA, LTE is now moving to a more mature phase of development […]

Software Defined Network and Virtualization In this whitepaper, we look at network virtualization for Diameter signaling services. We begin by examining current pain points for the service provider’s growth in signaling traffic. We discuss use cases on how both SDN and NFV can address these network pain points.  Diametriq has created a signaling network architecture […]

Diametriq’s Diameter Solution Suite™ includes a Diameter Routing Agent (DRA), Diameter Edge Agent (DEA), a Diameter Load Balancer (DLB) and a Diameter Interworking System (IWF). The Diameter Routing Engine™ (DRE) is a Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) combined with a Diameter Load Balancer (DLB) that offers traffic management and load balancing functions that can be configured […]

As mobile traffic grows, so will Diameter signalling. The exponential growth of mobile data in the coming years will mean that operators will grapple with massive signalling traffic. Unless optimally managed, this can congest and even bring the network to its knees. To address this concern, the IETF and the 3GPP have defined the key functions of a […]

These are the slides presented by Arnab Dey, Technical Lead for Diametriq, to the GSMA North America meeting  held on May 14, 2013 in New Orleans, Louisiana about the role of Diameter in LTE roaming and interoperability.

Trial Demonstrates Readiness for LTE Roaming  Melbourne FL, Reston VA and Orlando FL – April 11, 2013 – Transaction Network Services (TNS), a leading global provider of data communications and interoperability solutions, Diametriq, a leader provider of LTE signaling solutions, and ClearSky Technologies, a leading provider of mobile data services to regional wireless carriers, jointly […]

By: Anjan Ghosal, President and CEO, Diametriq Competitive carriers have a dilemma managing their Diameter signaling – the signaling system between all LTE core network elements. One possible option is to purchase the Diameter routing and management service from an IPX provider as a hosted solution. With low traffic volumes this may seem like a […]

An independent consultant, Tonse Telecom (www.tonsetelecom.com), has developed a whitepaper “The LTE Data Storm in the Core of Your Network!” that explores the challenge that carrier network architects and mobile operators have in attempting to accurately predict and forecast LTE signaling traffic. Tonse used Diametriq’s Diameter Traffic Calculator™ to project signaling traffic scenarios for various use […]

“The Past, Present and Future of Diameter Signaling Control.” The 10th in a series of whitepapers from Diametriq about signaling in LTE networks, this paper takes a look at the current state of the LTE global build out and the factors that will continue to increase the amount of signaling traffic in coming years. The author […]

The arrival of 4G/LTE has opened up new opportunities for MVNO’s to offer distinguishing data plans and services. However, before that is possible, MVNO’s and MVNE’s have to get familiar with a completely new network architecture, a host of new network elements and a fundamentally new communication protocol called Diameter. Diameter impacts all interfaces like […]

Wireless operators around the world are upgrading their networks to LTE. This means not just the addition of new network elements like the P-Gateway and the S-Gateway, but also a fundamental change to the underlying signaling from SS7 to Diameter. Mobile virtual network operators (MVNO) – who typically have their own billing system and policy […]

Web-based Traffic Model Calculates LTE Diameter Signaling Load Melbourne, FL – September 17, 2012 – Diametriq, a leader in addressing LTE signaling network issues, announced today the first web-based interactive tool that automatically calculates the Diameter signaling load based on a variety of input variables such as the number of LTE devices and how subscribers […]

Many of us in the industry have been talking for some time about the “signaling storm” and how Diameter signaling traffic will be clogging the control plane. Has anyone taken the time and effort to study this problem in depth? We at Diametriq have developed a model and did the analysis –the results may surprise […]

A Storm is Brewing – an LTE Signaling Storm We have all heard about the “LTE signaling storm” and how Diameter signaling traffic can potentially choke the network. The always-on, data-centric nature of devices in the 4G network results in an explosion in the volume of data in the user plane as well as an […]

A Diameter Signaling Controller or DSC is deployed in the 4G Evolved Packet Core (EPC) to perform signaling traffic management, roaming control, vendor interoperability and legacy interworking. Another major headache for operators will be enabling their 2G/3G services for LTE. There are two approaches to this, either integrate legacy SS7-based services using Diameter-SS7 interworking or […]

The network architecture of the mobile core has evolved to be more complex with many more elements and interfaces added in each release and the signaling has evolved from SS7 to Diameter signaling. This paper analyzes the evolution of the 3GPP mobile core and its interfaces and tracks the evolution of SS7 to Diameter signaling.
