F5 Networks announced that ".. BASE Company [formally KPN Belgium] —best known for its consumer-orientated mobile services brand, BASE, and one of Belgium’s largest telecom providers—has selected the F5® Traffix® Signaling Delivery Controller™ (SDC™) to meet subscribers' increasing demand for data.
Last year, BASE Company became the second operator in Belgium to launch 4G for its customers, providing them with much higher speeds to optimize user experience while watching video and consuming rich media".
Ben Volkow, VP, Product Development, F5 said: “Our Diameter-based SDC has proved itself in more than 50 installations [see "F5: We are Starting to See Policy Enforcement Wins; Tremendous Progress with Traffix Diameter" - here] with leading operators across the globe. One of its prime roles is to enable operators to manage the huge increase in signaling messages that typically occurs with LTE technology, primarily due to consumer behavior with smartphones”.
In Q2, 4G at BASE Company was also made available in Brussels. End of Q2 4G is offered in more than 700 cities, towns and villages, equaling approximately an outdoor population coverage of 55% of the Belgian population.
