Acision Launches Diameter Intelligent Signalling Controller; Enabling Operators to Have Greater Control Over Diameter Based Networks

LONDON, February 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Intelligent dynamic routing solution, with pre-emptive overload protection and smart Quality of Service (QoS) management, assures high availability and profitability of LTE networks

Acision, a global mobile services leader, today launches Acision Diameter Intelligent Signalling Controller (DiSC), enabling operators rolling out LTE and Evolved Packet Switched core networks, to dynamically control and manage increasing data traffic to drive efficiencies and protect their revenue streams.  

LTE subscriptions are growing significantly, as is the volume of data on those networks, with the GSMA predicting that there will be 465 LTE networks in play by 2017. As part of this roll-out, operators are turning to IP network architectures, incorporating LTE with existing 3G networks, to better meet demands for more, faster data. As a result operators need to optimise the network infrastructure, increasing control and security over their Evolved Packet Core signalling networks and relieving pressure from increases in traffic, while enabling network scalability.

Acision DiSC controls 4G LTE Diameter signalling traffic, leveraging dynamic multi-layer routing mechanisms. This enables operators to develop an efficient Evolved Packet Switched Core network based on a future proof architecture, with increased resilience and smart signalling flow control. For example, pre-emptive overload protection helps to maintain the efficiency of Diameter traffic management during unexpected traffic peaks, or so called "signalling storms". Our Smart Quality of Service (QoS) management also helps to ensure guaranteed signalling channels for the operator's most valuable subscribers and services under any load conditions.

Adolfo Hernandez, CEO at Acision commented: "Operators are facing an explosion in data traffic. As smartphone and tablet use increases, alongside data-heavy applications such as video and social media channels, the network is under increasing pressure to perform to higher standards. At the same time, operators have to balance their need to monetise these networks with maintaining quality of service. As the most comprehensive diameter routing solution on the market, Acision DiSC not only protects network assets but allows operators the flexibility to manage their quality of service, by dynamically routing traffic to safeguard their most important customers and applications."

Through the advanced Diameter interface control mechanisms, Acision DiSC also enables numerous LTE roaming and interconnect scenarios.  With its range of security features, such as connectivity access control, topology hiding, volumetric traffic measurements and conditional protocol validations, an operator is able to ensure connectivity with other service providers regardless of whether their network is any combination of 2G, 3G or 4G, in a secure manner.

JF Sullivan, EVP Product Management and CMO at Acision, added: "LTE investment is key for operators today to ensure that they are meeting consumer demands for more data and speed, but better network management means operators can also focus on the profitability of their LTE rollout.

"Our combined DiSC router and broker is hardware independent, allowing operators complete freedom to choose their hardware supplier. It may also be deployed in an operator's own cloud environment while still delivering telecom grade performance. An intuitive management interface provides a real time view of the connectivity status and current load on all diameter links, enabling easy and non-service affecting reconfiguration. By improving the management, efficiency and scalability of the network with our solution, operators are able to future-proof their LTE investments."
