Interoperability.

Building a new system from the ground up is expensive and unnecessary. Our Professional Services group is on hand to help you tailor BIG-IP Diameter Traffic Management to your existing system, regardless of whether it was built on F5 technology. You’ll get a bespoke system that plays well across multiple platforms and meets the unique needs of your network.

Diameter load balancer.

Smarter load balancing means a smoother ride for everyone. BIG-IP Diameter Traffic Management identifies traffic as it comes in, directing it to optimized portions of your network and improving the customer experience. It also protects your network from surge disruptions by directing and rerouting signals to available RAN towers, so you don’t have to invest in new structures to handle occasional spikes in traffic.

Control the overload.

BIG-IP Diameter Traffic Management manages traffic congestion within the signaling network and protects the signaling core by:

  • Prioritizing traffic by type, device, or subscriber
  • Pinpointing and dealing with the specific cause for the congestion on a per-client basis
  • Guaranteeing performance specifications
  • Monitoring and protecting network elements with intelligent throttling that takes into account the traffic priority across groups of servers

Traffic management is only part of the story.

F5 solutions help you manage your network in a variety of ways, consolidated on a unified platform. A single system streamlines your management processes, helping your network run more efficiently.
