Report: Strong growth in LTE diameter signalling traffic expected

LTE diameter signaling traffic will grow at more than twice the rate of mobile data traffic through 2017, according to the second annual Oracle Communications LTE Diameter Signaling Index. The report predicts that worldwide LTE diameter signaling traffic will increase at a 140 per cent compound annual growth rate (CAGR), from 1.2 million messages per second (MPS) in 2012 to nearly 99 million MPS by 2017. Diameter is the signaling protocol operators use to deliver personalized digital lifestyle services. Diameter messages enable subscriber network access, secure interconnection with roaming and over-the-top application partners, accurate charging and usage-based services. They are essential for authorisation, authentication, policy, charging and mobility management. Report
