TITAN.IUM Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC)

NetNumber Integrated Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC)

NetNumber’s TITAN.IUM-based Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) provides a highly scalable, low latency, container-native Diameter signaling control element that can be used to manage the rapid growth of the Diameter signaling network. This is critical to the operator’s success and is essential for continued revenue growth.

The DSC provides capabilities that transform, forward, route, and load balance Diameter signaling traffic within 4G/LTE and IMS core networks. In combination with Diameter screening functions, these capabilities fully protect the Diameter network, especially critical for versatile LTE roaming use cases. The resulting simplification of Diameter routing in the core network reduces complexity, increases reliability, and drives down OPEX support costs.

Depending on its configuration, the DSC can seamlessly act as a Diameter Relay, Proxy, Redirect and Translation Agent (DRA) per RFC 6733 and as Diameter Edge Agent (DEA) per GSMA IR.88.
