CITIC Deploys F5® Traffix® Signaling Delivery Controller™ (SDC™) to Optimize LTE Roaming Services

F5 Networks (NASDAQ: FFIV) announced today that CITIC Telecom International, a leading telecommunications services provider in Asia, has deployed the F5® Traffix® Signaling Delivery Controller (SDC) Diameter solution to optimize its IPX (Internet Protocol eXchange) service.

The IPX solution provides a one-stop-shop turnkey solution for IDD voice, mobile roaming signaling, SMS messaging, and roaming data services for both mobile and fixed network operators, as well as Internet service providers (ISPs). Seamless connectivity provided by the F5 Traffix SDC gateway enables CITIC and its customers to quickly enter new roaming agreements, and the solution’s Diameter Edge Agent (DEA) protects the network to maintain reliable LTE roaming services.

“Fast and secure connections are critical deliverables for IPX services, and in turn for a high quality of experience for customers,” said Sutton Cheung, CTO at CITIC. “With F5’s Traffix Signaling Delivery Controller, our customers can be assured of network security when connecting to others via roaming agreements. Similarly, our IPX customers are guaranteed quality, reliability, and security in accessing their partners’ networks anywhere in the world with a single connection and minimal investment.”

“When the F5 Traffix SDC is part of an IPX solution, all peer connections are secured and protected by normalizing the flow of signaling messages, preventing failover or other scenarios that could negatively impact performance,” said Ben Volkow, VP of Product Development at F5. “Our Diameter-based SDC has proved itself in dozens of installations with leading operators across the globe, enabling them to maintain top network performance despite LTE’s demanding traffic levels. We are very pleased to give CITIC a technological edge with flexible routing and rapid connectivity capabilities.”

The F5 Traffix SDC assists mobile operators and IPX carriers in scaling and managing their networks, as well as enabling LTE services and applications, with seamless and safe connections to legacy networks and other environments. On one platform, the SDC solution offers intelligent context-aware Diameter routing, load balancing, and interworking functionality. This enables a smooth and cost-effective rollout of LTE speeds and services, resulting in an enhanced customer experience. The F5 Traffix SDC is one of many solutions contributing to the F5 Synthesis high performance services fabric, enabling unified Software Defined Application Services for service providers.
