DALLAS and MELBOURNE, Fla., Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/-- Diametriq, a leading authority in addressing LTE signaling network issues, today announced the addition of CAMEL/WIN to its Diameter Interworking System™ ensuring pre-paid subscriber roaming between LTE and 3G networks. Diametriq along with a Tier-1 operator, have taken the lead and developed the CAMEL/WIN specification solving a critical challenge of supporting subscriber services as operators transition to 4G and beyond.
"A major benefit of Diametriq's Diameter Interworking System is that it may be interfaced to any vendor's Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) for easy integration to other network elements," said Anjan Ghosal, president and CEO of Diametriq. "We offer a cost-effective alternative to upgrading a legacy system or purchasing a new one."
4G networks need to interoperate with 3G networks, but not all operators are expected to migrate to 4G at the same time resulting in a hybrid of 3G and 4G network elements. The Diameter Interworking System serving as a Diameter Interworking Function (IWF) provides an interworking capability for Diameter and SS7 that may be dynamically customized using script or plug-ins. It supports a number of use cases including the standardized MAP to/from Diameter (e.g., S6a, S6d, S13, S13' to GSM MAP and ANSI-41 MAP). Now Diametriq has added CAP/WIN to/from Diameter to support the use of legacy pre-paid systems.
An optional feature of the Diameter Interworking System is Diametriq's unique and powerful Application Selector Function (ASF) that simplifies the integration of third party applications such as "Pre-paid or Post-paid Billing Systems", "Clearing and Financial Settlement Systems" and "Bill Shock and Churn Systems."
The Diameter Interworking System is one of the products that comprise the Diametriq Diameter Solution Suite™, which also includes a Diameter Routing Agent (DRA), a Diameter Load Balancer and a Diameter Edge Agent (DEA). These functional elements may be configured to an operator's specific business and network requirements. The Diameter Solution Suite provides the required flexibility to meet the demands of today's wireless operators that must manage the surge in signaling traffic brought about by the dramatic growth in smartphone, tablet and other wireless devices.
"Diametriq and its predecessor IntelliNet Technologies have a long history of solving interoperability issues and have a wealth of legacy protocols and expertise that we built into this product," added Mr. Ghosal. "Our Diameter Interworking System is in trial with several operators at this time."
The enhanced Diameter Interworking System will be featured at LTE North America 2013 taking place on November 20-22 in Dallas. Diametriq is a show sponsor will be exhibiting and demonstrating at Booth 17. In addition, Mr. Ghosal will present on November 20 during the Signaling Focus Day on "Bridging the Generation Gap – Interworking between 3G, 4G and More!"
Diametriq, offering LTE control signaling solutions to meet the needs of LTE network operators, was built on the assets of IntelliNet Technologies, a wireless solutions company founded in 1992. The company's application enabled Diameter Solution Suite™ addresses traffic management, interoperability and service migration issues. The Diameter Solution Suite™ includes a Diameter Routing Agent (DRA), Diameter Edge Agent (DEA), a Diameter Load Balancer (DLB) and a Diameter Interworking System. Diametriq's technology is deployed in more than 100 operators around the world. For more information, visit www.diametriq.com.
