BEDFORD, MA--(Marketwire - Feb 21, 2013) - Acme Packet® (NASDAQ: APKT), the leader in session delivery networks, today announced that their Net-Net Diameter Director 7000 Series, a Diameter signaling controller (DSC) solution, has been honored with the Mobility Tech Zone 2012 LTE Visionary Award by Mobility Tech Zone, the leading website dedicated to the mobile broadband industry. Mobility Tech Zone is sponsored by TMC, a global integrated media company, and Crossfire Media, an integrated marketing company with a core focus on technology.
Service providers are recognizing the importance of DSCs as they deploy Long Term Evolution (LTE) and IP Multimedia Systems (IMS) networks and transform their voice, messaging, and data services. The Net-Net Diameter Director 7000 series helps service providers address the critical security, interoperability, routing, and scaling challenges in LTE and IMS networks. These functions enable the seamless exchange of subscriber and session data, and reduce the mesh of Diameter connections that negatively impact network performance, scalability, and management.
- "It is a pleasure to recognize Acme Packet with this award. Their contribution toward the future of mobile broadband is noteworthy," stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "I look forward to more innovation from Acme Packet in the future."
- "As service providers continue to respond to the increasing demand for LTE and IMS networks, Acme Packet will be alongside them improving upon our own technologies and helping them in their endeavors," said Pat MeLampy, chief technology officer, Acme Packet. "We are honored that the editors at Mobile Tech Zone recognize and acknowledge our efforts with this award."
