We developed our Diameter Routing System to help operators meet the challenges LTE Roaming presents by constructing the architectural foundation to support guaranteed Diameter interoperability implementations between global mobile operators

The rapid adoption of smart devices and increasing consumption of data hungry applications continues to create an enormous surge in the demand for mobile data, accelerating 4G/LTE implementations by mobile operators worldwide. As a result, Aicent, a leading provider of IPX-based mobile data network services for global mobile operators, is pleased to introduce their Diameter Routing Service specifically designed to help mobile operators quickly and seamlessly establish LTE Roaming interconnectivity services. Aicent’s Diameter Routing Service is currently in ongoing trials with a significant number of leading global operators.

According to a recent survey conducted by Informa Telecoms & Media, “Almost 60% of operators stated that they will launch 4G services this year, while the vast majority (70.5%) believe there is a viable business case to launch 4G today.” With more networks migrating to LTE, ensuring global roaming services through network interoperability has become a growing concern for mobile operators. To help operators manage the complexities of interconnecting with global operators, Aicent developed their Diameter Routing Service to:

1. Offer mobile operators a single Diameter peer implementation for all Diameter interconnections based on Aicent’s extensive partnerships with LTE operators located throughout the world
2. Ensure a quick and successful implementation between two incompatible Diameter gateways
3. Proactively monitor, alert, and develop reports, in real-time around Diameter signaling, traffic, and roaming problems

“This global trend by operators to roll-out LTE is the catalyst for both the development and initial LTE roaming trials of Aicent’s Diameter Routing Service with global Tier 1 mobile network operators”, said Zidan Lian, Director of Product Marketing for Aicent, Inc. “We developed our Diameter Routing System to help operators meet the challenges LTE Roaming presents by constructing the architectural foundation to support guaranteed Diameter interoperability implementations between global mobile operators.”

Built upon their IPX Transport Service, Aicent’s Diameter Routing Service supports high data roaming volumes over a single Diameter peer implementation. With guaranteed interoperability between disparate Diameter installations, Aicent’s Diameter Routing Service ensures successful integration among two or more incompatible Diameter gateways, in addition to providing AVP mediation, roaming policies, and proactive Diameter signal monitoring, along with superior traffic management and load balancing capabilities.
