Ulticom (News - Alert), a company specializing in Diameter signaling software solutions, announced the release of version 3.3 of the Ulticom DSC.
The Ulticom Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) is a software product that optimizes Diameter Signaling in 4G and IMS networks. It enables Service-Oriented Routing and multi-vendor interworking between network elements in support of: Centralized Routing – simplifying network management; Load Balancing – optimizing charging and subscriber data management; Edge Routing – diameter edge agent facilitating LTE (News - Alert) roaming; and Policy Routing – diameter routing agent advancing policy management and charging.
“White Labeling enables our OEM customers to extend their brand capability while providing the most advanced DSC features in the industry,” Jamie McArdle, vice president of sales at Ulticom, said in a statement.
The Ulticom DSC distributes load across the server pools, provides application specific routing optimization, and dynamically compensates for congestion. Release 3.3 extends the DSC product with additional advanced routing capabilities, providing enhanced network routing resilience and even greater flexibility for multi-AVP-based routing.
Release 3.3 also provides advanced White Labeling support – a feature that empowers OEM customers to rebrand the DSC product and supporting documentation, tailoring it to their own product portfolio.
The Ulticom DSC is supplied as a Linux-based software product, deployable on X86-64 hardware platforms.
“Ulticom’s DSC underscores our commitment to the evolution of the signaling industry. Smart devices, consumer demand for data centric features, and new network technologies like LTE are placing ever increasing demands on mobile networks. Ulticom is committed to work with our customers to deal with these scaling issues head on,” Bruce Swail, chief executive officer at Ulticom, pointed out in a statement.
In another report from TMC (News - Alert), operators are reportedly hoping to get the 4G network crashes under control by putting the right Diameter Routing protocol in place.
