Mavenir Systems Deploys Ulticom DSC in Leading IPX/LTE Hubbing Network

Software-Based Solution Enables Intriguing New Business Model for IPX Providers

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- Ulticom, the industry leader in signaling software solutions, announces deployment of the Ulticom Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) product in a leading IPX/LTE Hubbing network through their OEM partnership with Mavenir Systems.

This deployment leverages the Software Solution from Mavenir/Ulticom to enable Cloud based delivery of LTE Roaming DEA services. This solution enables network operators to interconnect their network with other providers without having to field and maintain a physical DEA. The solution simplifies the introduction of LTE Roaming, and allows individual network operators to start with minimal investment and grow with the increasing demand.

Mavenir Systems' solution consists of large scale Ulticom DSCs serving as a central router at the core of the network. Arrayed around the network are DSCs serving in the role of Diameter Edge Agents (DEA).

The IPX/LTE Hub deploys DEAs in a Cloud Computing infrastructure, leveraging virtualization and cloud technologies enabling other network operators to select the DEA deployment solution that best meets their needs. As capacity requirements change, the approach supports easy expansion strategies. Mobile Network Operators can then individually choose to use DEA functionality hosted in the Cloud or deploy DEAs using virtual or dedicated hardware at the edge of their networks.

Mavenir is a leading provider of software-based networking solutions for mobile service providers to deliver high-quality internet protocol (IP)-based voice, video, rich communications and enhanced messaging services globally.

"The ability to virtualize services is a key strategy for Mavenir and opens up a whole new approach for service delivery, well suited to IPX providers," said Terry McCabe, Chief Technology Officer, Mavenir Systems. "The Ulticom Diameter Signaling Controller is the first step to deployment of hosted services such as RCS."

"Ulticom's software-based DSC provides a powerful, cost effective solution that leverages Cloud Computing and Virtualization technologies. The combination enables new business models for network operators," said Bruce Swail, CEO of Ulticom. "Working with innovative OEM partner, Mavenir Systems, we look forward to additional exciting solutions for the emerging VoLTE and RCS markets."

The Ulticom DSC provides Mobile Network Operators, Roaming Hub Operators, and Telecom Equipment Manufacturers with a turn-key, Linux-based software solution that can be incrementally deployed as a stand-alone system, as was the solution at Mavenir, or can be easily integrated into new or existing products.

Ulticom's DSC is a Centralized Router, a Diameter Load Balancer, a Diameter Routing Agent (DRA), or a Diameter Edge Agent (DEA). DEA functionality supports LTE Roaming while DRA functionality provides advanced policy management signaling routing (IP-CAN Binding). Ulticom's Diameter Product Family provides the ability to interwork between Diameter and SS7 networks -- enabling 2G-3G-4G integration.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
