Research and Markets
has announced the addition of the "
Diameter Signalling Control: Market Analysis & Forecasts
" report to their offering.
A global assessment of Diameter Signalling Control (DSC) products, providing insight into the market drivers, barriers, vendors strategies and prospects for the industry.
The Diameter protocol is an extension of, and replacement for, the renowned Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) protocol for Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA). Driven by the transition from 2G/3G to LTE networks, ARCchart expects
sales to account for nearly
in revenue by the end of 2017, representing a CAGR of nearly 90% over the next four years.
Given its enhanced reliability, scalability, security and flexibility over legacy protocols, Diameter has been chosen as the de-facto signalling protocol in all next generation fixed and mobile IP-based networks, such as IMS and the LTE Evolved Packet Core (EPC) network.
The on-going adoption of signalling intensive applications on smartphones and tablets, such as social networking, is creating a flood of network signalling. Consequently, operators are taking a proactive stance towards managing the signalling tsunami as they plan their future LTE and IMS rollouts. By 2017, ARCchart expects mobile network operators worldwide will process a total of 120 million Diameter messages per second on their networks. Topics of coverage include:
- History of the Diameter protocol - The drawbacks of legacy AAA protocols - Diameter signalling architecture within IMS and EPC - The need for diameter signalling control functionality - Factors driving the DSC market - Challenges to the DSC ecosystem - DSC product categories and use cases - DSC industry roadmap - DSC deployment case study - Profiles of key DSC product vendors - Market sizing and forecast
