ASPIDER Selects F5 Traffix Signaling Delivery Controller™ (SDC) Diameter Solution

F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, announced today that ASPIDER, a leading Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE), has selected the F5® Traffix Signaling Delivery Controller (SDC) Diameter solution to help manage Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) wholesale solutions for their Tier 1 carrier clients.

The F5 Traffix SDC enables both the routing of the billing message and the translation between the various protocols involved. Every time a subscriber of the carrier’s MVNO customer sends an SMS or MMS message, the related billing charges are routed to the ASPIDER Online Charging System via the F5 Traffix SDC. In this deployment, the SDC routes from multiple vendors’ core systems and supports Diameter and SCAP interconnectivity.

“We chose the F5 Traffix SDC for its technical routing superiority in handling complex interconnectivity with the various networks, protocols, and vendors,” said David Traynor, CEO of ASPIDER U.S. “We need the flexibility to interconnect to just about any core equipment, with the platform to handle scale and reliability.”

“ASPIDER enables enhanced scalability and reliability for carriers to better manage wholesale solutions, particularly as the market ramps up for LTE,” said Ben Volkow, VP of Product Development at F5. “With F5 Traffix, ASPIDER can provide an efficient and strategic approach for large carriers to generate new revenues and maintain quality of service across customer segments.”

The F5 Traffix SDC is a Diameter solution that combines intelligent, context-aware signaling with a Diameter router, load balancer, and gateway. This provides simplified control, superior scalability, and seamless connectivity so that networks can support subscribers’ heavy and growing use of mobile broadband data.

The F5 Traffix SDC Diameter Gateway offers instant and cost-effective, any-to-any connectivity between Diameter-based interfaces and systems that use legacy signaling protocols. With seamless connectivity between all Diameter network elements, legacy network elements, and an unlimited variety of third-party vendors, MVNOs, roaming partners, and service providers have an easy migration path with countless opportunities to pursue alternative business models and introduce additional revenue sources.
