Ulticom announced the ".. availability of Release 4.0 of its .. Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC). Release 4.0 includes three key features:
- Virtual IP Management – Mobile Network Operators are reluctant to change or reassign IP Address within their network since it requires additional, costly steps to re-provision other network nodes. With Virtual IP Management, a standard function of the Ulticom DSC, IP Addresses can be permanently assigned so Peers (clients and servers) need only be provisioned once.
- Congestion Management – The Ulticom DSC employs highly configurable mechanisms to manage signaling traffic congestion for itself and for its associated Peers and Peer Groups.
- IPX Hub – In Release 4.0, the Ulticom DSC also supports an increasingly important use case – the IPX Hub. The IPX Hub provides core Diameter routing and interworking within the domain of an IPX Provider".
