Dialogic, a global networking software and infrastructure solution provider, recently announced that DOCOMO PACIFIC has selected Dialogic’s BorderNet™ Diameter Services Helix to help enable its 4G/LTE roaming services. The BorderNet Helix, a next generation Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC), will provide Diameter Edge Agent (DEA) capabilities to help DOCOMO PACIFIC secure its critical Evolved Packet Core (EPC) infrastructure, improve operational flexibility and help reduce ongoing operational costs in providing 4G roaming services.
DOCOMO PACIFIC, a provider of 4G LTE services in Guam, will utilize Helix’s advanced GUI-based signaling mediation capability to rapidly interwork network elements within its EPC. “Helix is going to help us easily overcome the technical issues associated with roaming interconnection and reduce the complexity, cost and time in setting up roaming agreements with our partners,” said Atsunori Kubota, Chief Technology Officer for DOCOMO PACIFIC. “By deploying a next generation DSC like Helix, we’ll be able to eliminate the expense of hosted DEA approaches with our roaming hub providers, expand our number of roaming partners, and increase our flexibility by immediately enabling us to support our future Diameter routing.”
Helix uniquely integrates multiprotocol interworking functionality, DEA, and Diameter Routing Agent features within an intuitive signaling orchestration framework that allows service providers to rapidly interwork and enhance services across 3G, 4G/LTE, IMS/VoLTE, and Wi-Fi networks.
“We’re excited to be a mission critical solution provider in DOCOMO PACIFIC’s 4G roaming strategy,” said Jim Machi, senior vice president of marketing and product management for Dialogic. “The flexibility of our next generation BorderNet Helix platform addresses multiple current use cases while also being designed with the future well in mind, making it attractive for any operator looking for a rapid pay-back on its DSC investment.”
About DOCOMO PACIFIC
A wholly-owned subsidiary of Japan telecommunications giant, NTT DOCOMO, DOCOMO PACIFIC was originally a merger of Guamcell Communications and HafaTel prior to acquisition in December 2006 by NTT DOCOMO. This acquisition allowed NTT DOCOMO the opportunity to share its world-leading technology with the region as evidenced by significant investments and upgrades in DOCOMO PACIFIC. In October 2008, DOCOMO PACIFIC was first on Guam to introduce the fastest and only 3.5G network. In November 2011, DOCOMO PACIFIC launched 4G HSPA+ service on Guam followed by the launch of advanced 4G LTE service in October 2012. In May 2013, NTT DOCOMO officially acquired MCV Broadband and merged the company with DOCOMO PACIFIC. With this merge, DOCOMO PACIFIC is now the region’s leader in providing Cable TV, Mobile, Internet and Home Phone services. Along with offerings to include leading-edge mobile technology services and the most complete range of mobile handset models, DOCOMO PACIFIC continues to enhance the multitude of telecommunication and entertainment services available to its customers.
