Juniper Delivers Session and Resource Control for SRC

Juniper Networks introduced a portfolio of Session and Resource Control (SRC) solutions that provide subscriber management and deep policy control capabilities for Juniper's widely deployed SDX-300 Service Deployment System, and the new C-series family of controllers which support end-to-end policy management on a dedicated, purpose-built platform.

Juniper said the new SRC solutions simplify network operations and deployment, while delivering the end-to-end performance, reliability and scalability required to support multiplay services such as IPTV, video on demand, VoIP and advanced mobile and FMC applications.

Juniper's Session and Resource Control portfolio gathers and compiles data from multiple sources -- the network, subscribers and applications -- and uses this information to automatically control and manage network resources in real time.

The Session and Resource Control portfolio overcomes the operational complexities of deploying advanced multimedia services, and is closely aligned with emerging next-generation network architectures and specifications proposed by industry organizations including ETSI/TISPAN, the ITU, 3GPP IMS and CableLabs. The portfolio also includes a webservice interface that forms the basis for future participation in an IPsphere service management framework.

Juniper's SRC family of software modules will include the SRC Policy Engine, which monitors and allocates network resources; the SRC Diameter Gateway, for end-to-end control of IMS applications over the network; and the SRC SOAP Gateway, for seamless integration with a wide variety of Juniper and third-party developed applications.
