Nokia Intros Cloud-based Diameter Engine

Nokia introduced a cloud-based Dynamic Diameter Engine (DDE) aimed at simplifying, scaling and securing control plane traffic in mobile and fixed networks.

The platform is the first to incorporate Nokia's Agile Rules Technology (A.R.T.), which is backed by more than 150 patents. It can run on commercial off the shelf hardware but is designed to run in the Telco Cloud. It is integrated with Nokia's CloudBand portfolio that hosts, orchestrates, automates, and manages virtualized network functions and services.

Nokia said its DDE serves as a control plane "traffic cop" with a rules-based engine that reduces operational expenses by allowing operators to quickly create and modify rules.

Bhaskar Gorti, president of the Applications and Analytics Business Group at Nokia: "There are plenty of established signaling control solutions that do the job as required today. However they typically are not built for virtualization and often lack the flexibility needed for the signaling requirements of IoT and VoLTE. In contrast, Nokia DDE was built for the Cloud and is ready to support emerging signaling requirements."
