As LTE networks continue to grow, the control plane is bombarded with massive volumes of signaling and unprecedented traffic patterns. Without proper network planning, the results can be damaging to network performance, subscriber satisfaction, and profitability. F5 has designed dynamic architecture in signaling management around Diameter and DNS that helps service providers offer quality customer experiences while enabling scalability, supporting rapid rollout of new services and business models, and successfully managing growth.
Take control of Diameter signaling. As Diameter signaling messaging grows exponentially, service providers need a multi-functional Diameter platform. BIG-IP Diameter Traffic Management enables service providers to manage network complexity with context-aware routing, engage in secure roaming, and successfully integrate all Diameter and legacy elements.
Get scalability, availability, and reliability for SIP Proxy, Session Border Controller, media servers, and other SIP devices. BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) can distribute and balance SIP and RTP traffic among multiple SIP devices so service availability is guaranteed even under high call volumes. Additionally, the F5 solution can perform advanced health checks on the SIP devices, routing SIP clients away from unstable or unreliable devices and providing increased reliability to existing SIP solutions.
Scale and secure your DNS infrastructure. The growth of personalized operator services and media-rich apps on mobile devices—along with new networking technologies—is putting an enormous strain on service provider network control and data planes. F5 offers a comprehensive, authoritative solution that intelligently optimizes, scales and secures DNS infrastructures.
