Diameter Signaling Training Course by TONEX

Diameter Signaling Training explains what Diameter Signaling is and what it does. Diameter is the evolution path of signaling protocols similar to what SS7 did in PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Networks) signaling.

Diameter Signaling Training course explains Diameter Signaling in detail specially how to plan, design, configure, operate & maintain Diameter based signaling products in LTE/EPC, IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and other networks.

TONEX’s industry-leading Diameter training solutions offer skills and knowledge on how to use Diameter protocol and Diameter Agents such as Diameter Signaling Routers, Controllers and other platforms.
Diameter Signaling Training covers how service providers are moving away from traditional signaling protocols towards Diameter specially in 4G LTE and the IMS networks. Learn why And Diameter Signaling is so important  and why it enables new revenue path for the new and traditional services.

Diameter Signaling Routers are the building blocks of next generation packet-based Intelligent Networks supporting data and signaling loads.

Learn how to create a Diameter-based control layer applied to LTE, IMS, and 3G using Diameter endpoints. Using Diameter enables applications such as routing, traffic management, revenue assurance, policy and charging, and load balancing to create business models with Cloud, M2M, Internet of Things (IoT) and content.

Diameter protocol has practically replaced SS7 signaling in LTE/EPC and IMS.

Benefits of Diameter Signaling:

  • Be able to Diameter Signaling Agents, Routers and Controller
  • Deploy, integrate and manage signaling between different LTE/EPC and IMS nodes
  • Policy Control, Subscriber Registration, Charging & Roaming Procedures in EPC and IMS.
  • Network, Routing, addressing and traffic management
  • Optimizing functionality of HSSs and PCRFs
  • Creating a single point of interconnect, topology hiding, and encryption
  • Enabling new applications and services such M2M, IoT, Cloud, content and roaming partners
  • Controlling and managing signaling-related network failures, maintain QoS/QoE and SLAs for subscribers
  •  Monitoring and diagnosing traffic with centralized network visibility
  • Creating stateful sessions for more visibility of services, binding and correlation across networks
