By Telecom Lead Team: Traffix, a provider of signaling
technology that helps 4G networks run better and more efficiently, will
highlight many Diameter signaling solutions of routing, load balancing and
gateway connectivity to overcome challenging use cases that LTE presents to
operators at Mobile World Congress 2012.
Traffix will highlight its
inter-working Function (IWF) of Diameter/SS7-MAP solution for seamless
connection of LTE elements, interfaces and protocols to legacy SS7.
In addition, the company will also demonstrate diameter
Testing & Simulation Suite to maintain consistently high network
performance and availability.
Traffix enables operators to enable 2G/3G network
elements to communicate with LTE elements such as Mobility Management Entity
(MME) and Home Subscriber Server (HSS) for subscriber management by supporting SS7
legacy protocol with the IWF.
Traffix IWF includes reciprocal roaming of new
(greenfield) LTE operators on non-LTE networks, and allowing connectivity of an
SS7 Equipment Identity Register (EIR) in an LTE network.
“Traffix sees its role as enabling operators to get
over the pain points of LTE. Connectivity to legacy elements, protocols, and
interfaces is one major aspect in guaranteeing a smooth transition and delivers
significant cost reductions that should not be overlooked in today’s
competitive market,” said Ben Volkow, CEO of Traffix.
The company added that by using its diameter
Testing & Simulation Suite for control plane management, operators
receive the benefits of consistently high network performance and availability,
reduced time of integration with new elements, and best of all, constantly
maintain a high quality customer experience.
“The multifold benefits of our Diameter Testing
& Simulation Suite became clear to us as we were using it extensively as
part of our own R&D process. There isn’t anything else on the market of
this caliber for Diameter,” said Lenny Ridel, CTO of Traffix.
A few months back, Traffix Systems secured $7 million in financing in a round led by Bessemer Venture
