Tieto launches diameter signaling controller to meet challenges in mobile data growth

(Virtual Press Office) - A new telecom signaling solution – Tieto Diameter Signaling Controller – will be launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. This new solution will help network equipment providers (NEPs) and operators to solve a number of issues in the 4G/LTE mobile networks needed to secure the anticipated huge increase in mobile data capacity.

Data volumes for mobile applications are expected to grow with 4000% by 2020. The growth is largely attributed to more extensive use of smartphones and tablet devices. One challenge for operators is to handle the increase in signaling traffic as a consequence of the staggering data volumes. Current IP-based infrastructure is not built to handle the increased 4G/LTE Diameter signaling traffic in a secure and flexible manner. Diameter is the key signaling protocol in 4G/LTE networks and is required for interaction in a number of scenarios.

To meet the challenges in mobile data growth, Tieto is launching a Diameter signaling controller. It provides a flexible, robust and secure solution for reducing the overall signaling load and simplifies network configuration scenarios in rollouts. The Diameter signaling controller also secures efficient intra-network connectivity.

The Diameter signaling controller is being launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. As one of the world's largest suppliers of signaling solutions, Tieto's products are used in more than 100 networks by all major operators. In total over 25,000 nodes worldwide use Tieto's signaling solutions for telecommunications. With more than 25 years in the signaling business and in-depth application and network knowledge, Tieto is the partner of choice for leading NEPs and system Integrators.
