The Traffix Diameter Load Balancer is a native Diameter network entity. less prepaid service availability and less customer satisfaction. Each and every prepaid data transaction needs to be authorized between a Diameter client (e. No revenue. Load Balancing Diameter in a P repaid Intensive Environment What If…. S c a l i n g t h e c o n t r o l p l a n e to load balance Diameter control plane transactions is imperative to increase revenue and ensure customer satisfaction.g. An important part of any control plane architecture. scaling Diameter traffic across the different Diameter servers and clients and ensuring availability. No real time transaction authorization. It was designed to support message-based load balancing in advanced telecom networks. using Diameter level contextual load balancing methods. Online Charging System (OCS)). GGSN) and a Diameter server (e. this technology supports the introduction of scalable and efficient Diameter-based Next Generation Networks (NGN). t r a f f i x s y s t e m s .g. Data traffic is only allowed after the user's account balance is verified – a great challenge given the exponential increase in cellular data traffic and sheer transaction volume. GGSN-1 GGSN-2 GGSN-3 GGSN-4 Diameter Load Balancer systems Diameter Load Balancer systems OCS-1 OCS-2 OCS-3 OCS-4 w w w . as a result. A large percentage of your customer base is prepaid and they all consume increasingly sophisticated applications on their Smartphones? The Problem: With dozens of GGSNs and OCSs load balancing control plane traffic is a n e c e s s i t y.Real Life Use Cases for Diameter Control Plane Scaling Next generation applications and smart phone usage consume t r e m e n d o u s w i r e l e s s d a t a c a p a c i t y. en a bl i n g re a l t i me authorization of prepaid data traffic. allowing for contextual load balancing on the Diameter control plane and resilience to failovers and traffic spikes. service revenue and customer satisfaction. Scaling with Traffix Diameter Load Balancer: With dozens of GGSNs and OCSs load balancing control plane traffic is a necessity. OCS response time is slower than GGSN requests. To make things worse. c o m . load balancing is required between many OCS Diameter servers and less corresponding GGSN Diameter clients. Outages mean "no business". The load balancing algorithms in Traffix Diameter Load Balancer direct each request to the right OCS.
