DSC Deployments [271]: Telstra Selects Ericsson

Ericsson announced that "Telstra has selected the Ericsson Diameter Signaling Controller to expand its wireless network and meet the rapid growth in mobile broadband usage .. Ericsson Diameter Signaling Controller is implemented on Ericsson Blade System, a scalable, high-capacity platform that is involved in some 40 percent of the world's total voice and data traffic. It can be deployed as a stand-alone node, or co-located with Ericsson products such as IP-Signaling Transfer Point, Session Border Gateway and Service-Aware Policy Controller. Furthermore it is complemented with a selection of Ericsson services delivered by certified consultants who have extensive experience with systems integration".

At the end of June 2013, Telstra had 15.1M mobile subscribers in Australia. Telstra Global, the sister company for international operations, is using Diameter signaling technology from Tekelec (see "Telstra Global Uses Tekelec to Manage LTE Roaming") - here.

David Robertson [pictured], Director Transport and Routing Engineering, Telstra says: "Networks are evolving from narrowband signaling to diameter signaling, and we are leading the adoption of this new signaling architecture. DSC provides a more resilient mobile broadband network. We are deploying this technology to ensure we are ahead of the curve with growth in traffic complexity while delivering superior network performance to our customers".
