Allot and Tekelec Complete Interoperability Testing
Feb 11, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Allot Communications and Tekelec have completed Interoperability Testing for the 3GPP Sd Interface.
In a release, the Company noted that the new Diameter Sd Interface helps operators offer subscribers new digital lifestyle services, such as the connected home, mobile payments, mobile health and analytics. With the new Allot/Tekelec Sd integration and by using 3rd Generation Partnership Project standardized mechanisms, operators are able to offer innovative and competitive mobile broadband service plans with dynamic management of over-the-top traffic based on network utilization, subscriber and device awareness.
The companies announced IOT over the new Sd Diameter Interface, which communicates between the Tekelec Policy Server and Allot's Service Gateway Sigma E Traffic Detection Function in order to enable detection and enforcement control over applications.
The interface, whose standards were defined by the 3GPP R11, allows operators to:
-Create application-based service tiers and one-time offers through better application identification and control.
-Extend policy intelligence and control to new traffic management functions.
-Enable single unified traffic management for converged networks.
-Eliminate the need for a RADIUS interface between the TDF/DPI and the Gateway GPRS Support Node. The Sd Diameter Interface allows operators to transfer some tasks the GGSN manages to the Policy Server, thereby removing the need for a separate connection between the TDF/DPI and GGSN.
-Enhance Quality of Service for applications such as video streaming and voice over LTE by 2016 according to Tekelec's LTE Diameter Signaling Index forecast.
Allot Communications is a provider of broadband solutions.
Tekelec's provides mobile broadband solutions.
