Ulticom Upgrades Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) to Support Advanced Policy Management and Charging

A Software DSC Is the Ideal Solution for Policy and Charging Systems

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwire - Jun 28, 2012) - Ulticom, the industry leader in signaling solutions, announced the availability of full 3GPP Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) compliance as part of their Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC). In addition to DRA compliance this upgrade includes powerful extensions to Diameter Routing Rules (for use in centralized routing situations) and advanced load balancing features to optimally manage server load.

The Ulticom DSC is designed to address the challenges in the Diameter Signaling Network arising from the explosion in mobile broadband usage.

"Telecom Equipment Manufacturer's providing Policy Management and Charging products need a reliable way to manage the growth in Diameter signaling traffic while keeping costs under control. At the same time, they must deal with the unexpected interworking challenges of this dynamic industry," said Bruce Swail, CEO of Ulticom.

Policy Routing: The Ulticom DSC product provides the most advanced 3GPP Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) functionality available today. The product supports dynamic routing and configuration management, enabling service capacity to expand or contract as operational factors dictate.

Load Balancing: Dynamic load distribution enables advanced scaling of Diameter-based service applications like Online and Offline Charging (OCS/OFCS) and Home Subscriber Servers (HSS). The Ulticom DSC can be used to implement multiple strategies to manage resources based upon changing requirements.

Response to the Unexpected: As usage of the Diameter Signaling Network increases, flexibility is of the utmost importance. The Ulticom DSC also provides the ability to deploy scripts that can be used to examine, modify, and route traffic based upon content. 

The Ulticom DSC provides Telecom Equipment Manufacturers and Mobile Network Operators with a turn-key Linux-based software solution that can be easily integrated into new and existing products for Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF), Online Charging (OCS) or Home Subscriber Servers (HSS). The Ulticom DSC can also be deployed as a standalone solution for applications such as centralized routing on any commercially available Linux-based hardware platform.

Bruce Swail also noted, "Ulticom's software-based solution, capable of deployment alongside of your applications in the Linux-based hardware of your choice, makes the Ulticom solution ideal for integration into existing and new products. There are no extraneous hardware issues."
