The massive scale of wireless subscribers and the steady growth in wireless data and smartphones are driving tremendous growth in signaling traffic. At the same time, LTE-based wireless networks require many different core network and subscriber database nodes and network functions. The extraordinary growth in smartphone-based signaling traffic, plus the growing number of network elements and functions that require signaling traffic control and protocol normalization, created an urgent need for a new signaling infrastructure. Any failures of the signaling system can spell disaster for the network operator in the form of network outages, poor performance and system latency. Such problems often cause subscriber churn, lost revenue, and higher support and service costs.
Diameter signaling controllers (DSCs) arose as a new product category that manages the increase in diameter signaling while providing scalability, congestion control, and security.
