ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2013) - PT (
The recent upsurge in deployment of LTE/EPC/Diameter networks has presented service providers with a wide variety of hurdles that impact performance and operating expense.
- Vast increases in volume of Diameter traffic
- Multitudes of interconnected network elements
- Countless inter-network connections
- Redundant architecture resulting in more CAPEX and OPEX costs
- Increased multi-vendor interoperability issues
- Managing consolidated routing rules for both intra- and inter-network
PT's SEGway UDR with Diameter Routing Segmentation enables the virtualization of Diameter routing -- within a network -- or between interconnected networks. Each of these virtual Diameter Routing Agents or Diameter Edge Agents has its own separate set of routing and screening rules to shape traffic on a per-peer basis. This shaping includes traffic flow control, throttling, and congestion avoidance, and is quite simple to implement. SEGway's unparalleled flexible routing concept provides greater and more precise controls, thus allowing service providers to quickly deploy more advanced revenue-generating features.
Diameter Routing Agents and Diameter Edge Agents that include routing segmentation capabilities enable LTE/EPC/Diameter network service providers to design, implement, and maintain the most efficient and cost effective architectures to meet their individual business requirements.
"PT worked extensively with service providers to identify and resolve critical architectural and traffic issues presented by evolution to the Evolved Packet Core," said John Slusser, President and CEO of PT. "As the signaling experts, we continue to deliver innovations in technology to make our customers more successful and raise the industry standard for excellence."
PT's SEGway Signaling solutions are deployed in over one thousand locations, providing the Signaling backbone for many of the world's premier wireless networks. With its small footprint and high throughput capacity, SEGway is widely recognized as the industry's leading signaling architecture, with the ability to scale from small to very large networks.
