Dialogic enables interworking between LTE, 3G and Wi-Fi

Dialogic said its BorderNet Diameter Services Helix can help operators deliver services across LTE, 3G and Wi-Fi networks. The product offers service providers a unified platform that integrates the Diameter Routing Agent (DRA), Diameter Edge Agent (DEA) and Diameter Interworking functionality on a standalone platform, said the company. Service providers are anxious to implement commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions that cost-effectively interconnect Diameter-based networks with other protocols for service continuity and traffic offload, said Andrew Goldberg, Dialogic's senior vice president of marketing and strategy. According to Diane Myers, principal analyst at Infonetics Research, LTE networks and 3G networks will have to co-exist side-by-side for years to come. Further, she said the ability for customers to roam between mobile networks and Wi-Fi involves the interworking of Diameter and protocols like SS7 to deliver a seamless service.  For more, see this Dialogic release.
