Diameter signaling impact/benefits/challenges in a NFV, SDN, cloud world: Feature Report

Share Article

Growing consumer adoption of mobile broadband services is forcing telecom operators to steer more of that traffic towards their LTE deployments, which in turn is requiring enhancements to their Diameter platforms. The latest report from RCR Wireless News provides an update on how Diameter technology is advancing in development and deployment to meet those needs.

Diameter platforms remain an unsung hero of today’s modern LTE networks, make no mistake about their importance.

RCR Wireless News spoke with more than a dozen companies, including vendors like Ericsson, Sonus, F5, Oracle, Mitel, Adax and Alcatel-Lucent; and sought insight from industry analyst firms Exact Ventures, Infonetics Research and Signals Research to get a thorough update on the current Diameter market.

The report, entitled: “Diameter signaling impact/benefits/challenges in a NFV, SDN, cloud world,” contains vital takeaways including how the market has evolved over the past 12 months; where we stand today in terms of Diameter development and deployment; challenges facing the Diameter market; the impact new services like voice over LTE and increased consumer demand for mobile video are having on Diameter; what impact virtualization technologies using software-defined networking, network functions virtualization and cloud are having on Diameter; and what can be expected from the market over the next 12 months.

“One network element increasingly coming under the microscope is Diameter signaling, which is the traffic cop tasked with identifying and routing network traffic across IP-based LTE networks to ensure everything runs smoothly. When Diameter platforms struggle, we have seen networks nearly brought to their knees. But, when they are up to the task, they disappear into the complicated morass that is the modern telecom network,” said RCR Wireless News Editor-In-Chief Dan Meyer.
