The award recognizes core network elements that are exceptional in their area, contributing to making LTE more attractive for operators to deploy, and to the success of commercial LTE deployments.
“With more live deployments than any other Diameter signaling vendor in the industry, this award reinforces F5’s market leadership,” said Ben Volkow, VP of Product Development, F5. “A robust Diameter signaling management solution is the nervous system of a network — the element that ensures network performance, reliability, and service quality.
