New Release Of F5® Traffix™ Signaling Delivery Controller™ Enables Unprecedented Performance, Reliability, And Scalability For LTE Networks

Stocks in this article: FFIV

F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:  FFIV) today announced version 4.0 of the F5 ® Traffix™ Signaling Delivery Controller™ (SDC ), the market’s most mature Diameter routing, load balancing, and connectivity solution. F5’s Traffix SDC solution helps service providers control and manage network signaling in LTE networks and provides seamless connectivity between legacy home and roaming networks with its Signaling System 7 (SS7) interworking function (IWF).

Since the product’s inception, F5’s Traffix SDC solution has been fully compliant with IETF, 3GPP, and GSMA standards. SDC 4.0 provides enriched functionality, including more efficient redundancy mechanisms that enable SDC sites to achieve higher performance rates.

Other enhancements in Traffix SDC 4.0 include extended protocol support for RADIUS, LDAP, and other legacy protocols; a new graphical user interface with an improved dashboard; more network-wide, real-time analytics and statistics that draw information from multi-SDC sites; support for new hardware architecture; and higher performance.

“Since its acquisition of Traffix in February 2012, F5 has strengthened the SDC global footprint,” said Diane Myers, Principal Analyst at Infonetics Research. “The reliability of the SDC has encouraged operators to rely on and understand the critical role that a Diameter solution plays in LTE networks, and in providing connectivity to legacy networks. The expertise that F5 Diameter engineers have brought to the market is a strength the company has been able to leverage in becoming a leading vendor in the market.”

“2012 was an exciting year as the Traffix SDC solution was deployed in more than 25 sites among tier 1, tier 2, and IP Exchange (IPX) carriers worldwide. This reflects that service providers understand the value of a Diameter signaling solution to ensure network resilience, increase quality, and enhance performance,” said Ben Volkow, VP of Product Development at F5. “Traffix began the year by becoming part of the F5 organization, gaining both significant financial backing and a stronger delivery and support structure to enhance our technologically advanced product to customers. This latest release of the Traffix SDC solution is another example of how our deep expertise in Diameter enables our customers to benefit from much higher performance and lowers the investment bar for LTE.”
