Telecom Lead @ Mobile World Congress 2013: F5 Networks says version 4.0 of the F5 Traffix Signaling Delivery Controller (SDC), a Diameter routing, load balancing, and connectivity solution, helps service providers control and manage network signaling in LTE networks.

Enhancements in Traffix SDC 4.0 include extended protocol support for RADIUS, LDAP, and other legacy protocols; a new graphical user interface with an improved dashboard; more network-wide, real-time analytics and statistics that draw information from multi-SDC sites; support for new hardware architecture; and higher performance.

Diane Myers, principal analyst at Infonetics Research, says reliability of the SDC has encouraged operators to rely on and understand the critical role that a Diameter solution plays in LTE networks, and in providing connectivity to legacy networks.

The company deployed the Traffix SDC solution in more than 25 sites among tier 1, tier 2, and IP Exchange (IPX) carriers worldwide in 2012.
