authorization, authentication and mobility management messages that
enable mobile data services. These messages communicate using the
Tekelec's (News - Alert) DSR will support subscribers' personalized LTE experience by
enabling C Spire to:
Offer new and innovative LTE services. The DSR binds a
subscriber's mobile data activities - including browsing and voice
over LTE (VoLTE) - to a single policy server. This allows C Spire to
offer new tightly integrated VoLTE and data services.
Manage Diameter signaling traffic. All of C Spire's
Diameter traffic will flow through the DSR, giving the operator a
central nervous system to intelligently route messages across network
elements. This reduces the risk of signaling overloads and balances
network resources to reduce congestion, allowing subscribers maximum
use of C Spire's LTE capabilities.
Secure the LTE network. The DSR provides a secure
interconnection to partner networks, protecting private network and
subscriber from third parties.
"An efficient, reliable network is critical for our customers to use
mobile data when and how they want, at an affordable price," said David
Smith, vice president of Network Engineering for C Spire Wireless.
