The F5 Traffix SDC enables routing of the billing message and translation between the various protocols involved.

When a subscriber of the carrier’s MVNO customer sends an SMS or MMS message, the related billing charges are routed to the ASPIDER Online Charging System via the F5 Traffix SDC. In this deployment, the SDC routes from multiple vendors’ core systems and supports Diameter and SCAP interconnectivity.

“We chose the F5 Traffix SDC for its technical routing superiority in handling complex inter connectivity with the various networks, protocols, and vendors,” said David Traynor, CEO of ASPIDER U.S. “We need the flexibility to interconnect to just about any core equipment, with the platform to handle scale and reliability.”

Moreover, the F5 Traffix SDC Diameter Gateway offers cost-effective connectivity between Diameter-based interfaces and systems that use legacy signaling protocols. With seamless connectivity between all Diameter network elements, legacy network elements, and a variety of third-party vendors, MVNOs, roaming partners, and service providers have a migration path with opportunities to pursue alternative business models and introduce additional revenue sources.

“ASPIDER enables enhanced scalability and reliability for carriers to better manage wholesale solutions, particularly as the market ramps up for LTE,” said Ben Volkow, VP of Product Development at F5. “With F5 Traffix, ASPIDER can provide an efficient and strategic approach for large carriers to generate new revenues and maintain quality of service across customer segments.”
