Indian OSS/BSS provider Elitecore Technologies added new features to its Diameter Signaling Controller — EliteDSC.
EliteDSC, Elitecore said on Monday, comes with a software-based approach along with virtualization technology to support flexibility, scalability, low TCO and high availability needs of telecom operators across 4G, LTE and IMS networks.
The OSS/BSS provider claims that a software-based approach to Diameter signaling ensures flexibility in integration through simple GUI-based configuration, enabling operators to introduce software-level changes to create new features, applications and use cases.
Virtualization in EliteDSC maximizes hardware performance, improves manageability of newer resources and adds scalability to operator’s networks while creating new services based on evolving subscriber needs.
The virtualized Diameter engine does away with server sprawl, reduces hardware & deployment costs, ensures disaster recovery & faster provisioning which drastically saves on power consumption and prevents lock-in with hardware vendors.
“Software-based approach and virtualization is a far more effective way to manage the increasing number of signaling-hungry Services compared to investing in new hardware and resources each time there is a network expansion,” said Dhaval Vora, VP, Product Management, Elitecore Technologies.
The enhanced EliteDSC version, which is part of Elitecore’s Core Session Management platform, has extendible scripting module to facilitate interoperability across multiple network devices from different vendors.
Telecom operators will benefit as the new capabilities allow operators to program and automate policy-based configuration changes in network signaling. Moreover, it facilitates ease in SNMP and WebService based integration which can extend O&M and EMS for configuration, security ACL, reporting, planning, fault and performance management, improving overall management and operational efficiency.
