Ulticom DSC Release 3.3 - Diameter Signaling. Solved.

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 -- Ulticom, the industry leader in Diameter signaling software solutions for Telecom OEMs, announces Release 3.3 of the Ulticom DSC -- a software product that optimizes Diameter Signaling in 4G and IMS networks.

The Ulticom Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) 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 (DEA) facilitating LTE roaming
  • Policy Routing - Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) advancing Policy Management and Charging

Ulticom's unique Service-Oriented Routing capability goes beyond the typical primary/backup Diameter reliability strategy. The Ulticom DSC serves as a Diameter router and load balancer distributing Diameter signaling traffic across pools of servers. The server pools can be represented to external network elements as a single highly available logical entity -- in effect a Logical HSS, OCS, or PCRF. 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. It provides enhanced network routing resilience and even greater flexibility for multi-AVP-based routing. Release 3.3 also provides advanced White Labeling support. This feature empowers OEM customers to rebrand the DSC product and supporting documentation, tailoring it to their own product portfolio.

"White Labeling enables our OEM customers to extend their brand capability while providing the most advanced DSC features in the industry," said Jamie McArdle, Vice President of Sales at Ulticom.

Ulticom's DSC is the industry's most powerful solution for Diameter routing. The Ulticom DSC is supplied as a Linux-based software product deployable on industry popular X86-64 hardware platforms. Ulticom has pushed performance to new levels with Release 3.3. Benchmarked on two HP 380 G8 systems, each running an Ulticom DSC Diameter routing instance, the DSC has been clocked at 864,000 sustained simple Diameter transactions per second (TPS) (equating to 1.8M messages per second or MPS). This same configuration, running the complex Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) functionality, sustains an impressive 580K TPS (1.1M MPS).

Ulticom's DSC provides a powerful, cost effective software solution leveraging Moore's Law for optimal hardware cost/performance over time. The Ulticom solution enables our OEM customers to select the hardware that best meets their particular needs. This enables tremendous flexibility for integrating the DSC with existing OEM product portfolios. Our software based solution also enables our customers to use virtualization and cloud-based solutions to offer signaling services in new and exciting ways.

"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," said Bruce Swail, CEO of Ulticom.

The Ulticom DSC is suitable for deployment as a Centralized Router, a Diameter Load Balancer, a Diameter Routing Agent (DRA), or a Diameter Edge Agent (DEA). DEA functionality supports LTE Roaming while DRA functionality provides advanced policy management signaling routing (IP-CAN Binding). The Ulticom Diameter SS7 Gateway (D7G) product provides the ability to interwork between Diameter and SS7 networks -- enabling 2G-3G-4G integration when working in combination with the Ulticom DSC.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
