Tekelec (News - Alert), a mobile broadband solutions organization, recently announced that it will present a four-phase development to software-defined ThinkingNetworks at Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) 2013.
Operators need to change their networks in a rapid manner as they develop into ‘digital lifestyle providers,’ in order to collect and monetize mobile information prospects. To this end, an extremely smart, scalable and versatile software-defined ThinkingNetworks is required.
These networks are a major improvement from the New Diameter Network (NDN) that coordinates Diameter-based communications between policy servers, Diameter Signaling Routers, subscriber databases, gateways, charging systems, and mobility administration functions.
Operators will now be able to produce, customize and unveil fresh services in a swifter manner after this transformation. They will also be able to enhance value and share proceeds with mobile advertisers, over-the-top or OTT application and device providers.
Following the transformation, the development of cloud and machine-to-machine (M2M) services will also be stepped up. Apart from handling the rising data and signaling traffic, operators will be able to decrease network jamming and stabilize traffic across access networks.
Numerous products and offerings will be showcased by Tekelec at Mobile World Congress 2013. These include the Diameter Signaling Router, Tekelec LTE (News - Alert) Diameter Signaling Index Traffic Calculator, Policy Analytics, the Policy Server, the Mobile Policy Gateway and Mobile advertising offerings.
While the subscribers’ mobile data access, protection and quality of service are enhanced by the Diameter Signaling Router, Diameter signaling traffic on networks can now be predicted by the Tekelec LTE Diameter Signaling Index Traffic Calculator. Network intelligence hidden in millions of policy event records can be uncovered by Policy Analytics. Operators can therefore generate targeted service offers based on subscribers’ utilization, costing and quality of service choices.
Marketers, IT departments and network engineers can now develop fresh policy rules in a swift manner using the refined rules engine of the Policy Server. Chatty applications can now be administered, security can be enhanced and Wi-Fi offload can be managed by the Mobile Policy Gateway (News - Alert).
A preliminary look at adapted and targeted mobile advertising solutions like opt-ins and insertion will also be offered by Tekelec.
