• Sonus is integrating its DSC and PSX products to deliver a unified solution that provides policy control and signaling across legacy SS7 and next-generation SIP, ENUM and Diameter signaling domains.
• Solution provides service providers with a unified number portability database across SIP, ENUM and inline fixed signaling modes to reduce costs and improve network efficiency.
• With proven scale and resiliency in global Tier-1 networks, the solution enables single-point configuration control and consolidation of legacy, current and future database translation services.
Sonus Networks, Inc., a global leader in secure and intelligent Cloud communications, introduced today a new centralized signaling and routing control (CSRC) solution for service providers. By integrating its Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC) with its Centralized Policy and Routing Engine (PSX), Sonus is helping service providers decrease the complexity and increase the speed of converging legacy and next-generation signaling networks.
Business mergers, technology transitions and the introduction of next-generation networks have left service providers with multiple signaling and routing solutions that are difficult and costly to maintain. With Sonus’ integrated solution, the Sonus PSX brings the industry’s most feature-rich policy and routing control functionality to the Sonus DSC, delivering unparalleled scalability and reliability in the world’s most demanding wireline and wireless environments. This unified solution future-proofs service providers’ networks to address the expanding 4G/LTE market.
The combination of Sonus’ DSC and PSX unifies policy control and signaling for multiple types of legacy and next-generation signaling protocols. The solution enhances number portability functionality by seamlessly supporting SS7, SIP, ENUM and Diameter. The integration not only creates operational savings, but also makes it easier for customers to incorporate new database translation services into a signaling infrastructure in a protocol-neutral way.
“Sonus’ policy and signaling portfolios provide centralized policy and routing as well as SIP, ENUM, SS7, and Diameter signaling capabilities in the world’s most demanding service provider environments,” said Ram Ramanathan, Sonus director, Product Management. “By integrating these two products, Sonus is helping service providers simplify the core of their network so new services can run faster and more efficiently than ever before.”
