LTE Asia 2014 - Remain Relevant - The Next Generation Diameter Signaling Controllers

Dialogic BorderNet Diameter Services Helix which was named Finalist in the LTE Asia Awards in the category of Best LTE Core Network Product represents the next generation of Diameter Signaling Controllers (DSCs). It is a carrier class integrated solution that provides rapid service innovation and signaling orchestration across mobile, IPX, Wi-Fi, IMS and fixed networks. The BorderNet Helix seamlessly combines multiprotocol interworking, Diameter Edge Agent (DEA) and Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) features in an integrated, easy-to-use platform that can extend the capabilities of existing Diameter routing solutions and expands the possible use cases past what is supported by the current generation DSCs.Helix supports interworking scenarios involving Diameter, RAIDIUS and SS7 along with real-time, customized service enhancement logic for rapid integration with external subscriber and policy data repositories via LDAP, SOAP, XML and HTML.
