A Diameter Signalling Controller (DSC) is a key element for managing and securing Diameter signalling, a protocol used for control signalling in LTE networks and IP Multimedia Systems (IMS). Today's 3G and 4G mobile networks utilize the Diameter protocol similar to how SS7 is used in 2G mobile networks. The first generation of DSC products were designed as a central “STP-like” elements for providing traffic management, load balancing and session binding for Diameter signalling.
For operators to stand out and be successful in the 4G/LTE world, they need to differentiate and personalize their services. This requires DSC’s to evolve from simply providing infrastructure optimization to support complex service interactions and orchestration in next-generation networks. As such, the traditional, first-generation DSC’s no longer suffice.
Operators now need a next-generation DSC that provides:
- An integrated platform for intelligent routing and any-to-any protocol interworking
- Extensive mediation and service orchestration capabilities to support fast implementation of new services and policy & charging scenarios
- Cross-domain interworking for multi-play service offerings and seamless user experience
- Detailed traffic insight for billing and traffic analysis
- Low CAPEX & OPEX, running on off-the-shelf servers or virtualized.
