Manages (and scales) Diameter signaling for your network.
From phones to cars to refrigerators, more and more of our world is connected. Customers’ expectations for performance and reliability are also increasing. The Signaling Delivery Controller (SDC) can help you meet your customers’ demands—now and in the future.
High-capacity sibscriber location and routing functions (SLRF) allows you to route on a subscriber level.
The SDC normalizes functionality and validates signal messaging to protect against roaming hacks.
The active-active mode offers greater vertical and horizontal scalability.
How do you handle signal increases while maintaining network performance? The SDC Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) allows you to launch new services quickly and create tiered charging plans, without requiring complex integration or customization. And because it’s context-aware, the DRA provides network and subscriber information, giving you key insights for improving service quality and your overall customer experience.
Relationships with mobile network operators (MNOs) and mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) are a strategically vital portion of your business; however, they also open your network up to increased security threats. Our Diameter Edge Agent (DEA) sits on the edge of your network as a barrier to attackers. It also protects against the unexpected signal surges that lead to service disruptions.

Building a new system from the ground up is expensive and unnecessary. Our Professional Services group is on hand to help you tailor your new SDC 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.
Smarter load balancing means a smoother ride for everyone. The SDC 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.
The SDC manages traffic congestion within the signaling network and protects the signaling core by:
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.
Stay ahead of the transition from IPv4 to IPv6, without affecting the end-user experience.
Manage your policies with a comprehensive policy charging enforcement function.
Provides full support for session binding between protocols, including Diameter and HTTP.
Identifies multiple Diameter nodes for more sophisticated routing policies.
Supports databases of up to 500 million entries and ensures accurate routing to remote peers.
Enables any-to-any connectivity between Diameter-based and SS7 elements for network and roaming scenarios.
Implements complex business logic for connecting multiple protocols and vendors.
Distributes traffic using round robin, weighted round robin, contextual, response time, least-loaded, and external policies.
Categorizes, modifies, and reports on multiple SDC sites from one place to save time and ensure network reliability.
Shows how your network is running in real time for troubleshooting, analysis, and statistics on network usage.
