Global network operator Truphone goes live with new DSC from BroadForward and Nomios
has been selected by Truphone to replace their legacy Diameter routers with the BroadForward Diameter Signalling Controller (DSC)
proudly announced today they have deployed the BroadForward Diameter Signalling Controller (DSC) at Truphone’s two main data centres in the UK and the Netherlands, enabling Truphone to centrally configure and manage all their Diameter signalling traffic. As a leading expert in intelligent routing and interworking solutions based on the BroadForward product portfolio, can bring extensive experience to the table in designing, implementing and supporting mobile network functions for telecom operators around the world.
Truphone is a GSMA accredited global mobile network, combining its own network infrastructure with partnerships with other operators. Its customer base includes more than 3,500 multinational enterprises in 196 countries. The company is headquartered in London and has offices in ten other countries, spread across four continents. Truphone is a recognized top three eSIM player globally through its SIM provisioning service and counts over 30 major operator customers as its customers. Its unique global infrastructure provides plans with world access to over 100 countries and a flat rate plan covering 32 European countries.
BroadForward Next Generation DSC
The BroadForward Next Generation DSC (DRA, DEA and Interworking) provides Truphone with an intelligent signalling solution designed to orchestrate converged signalling services across 2G/3G, 4G/LTE, Fixed/Wi-Fi networks and ultimately 5G. The highly versatile and easy to configure software solution comes with multi-protocol routing, mediation and interworking. This enables Truphone to also integrate non-Diameter systems using for instance RADIUS or HTTP.
Victor Pinto, Head of Network Engineering at Truphone, commented “With a global network such as ours it is of vital importance we can integrate with the technology of our customers and enable services quickly and smoothly. As our previous Diameter router had reached its limits, we were in the market for a new solution. The BroadForward DSC deployed by signalling expert provides us with the extensive signalling flexibility for Diameter as well as other protocols such as RADIUS and HTTP, whenever we need it. We are pleased with the possibilities the solution brings.”
Head of Business Unit Mobile Security Solutions, Nela Zrilic added: “It is a great honor that Truphone - who are themselves a technology leader in their own right – have selected to replace their legacy systems and provide vital routing technology for their global network. Once we were able to showcase the solution, by means of a proof-of-concept, the team at Truphone was quickly convinced of the features, the flexibility and the overall power of the DSC solution. In close cooperation with Truphone, we very quickly got the BroadForward DSC up and running in their data centres, handling all Diameter services.”
Truphone believes that connectivity can be easier, smarter and more efficient. Since 2006, we have built state of the art SIM software, intuitive management platforms and a powerful global network to make this a reality. Every day, our technicians engineer better connections between things, people and business to make the world smarter. Headquartered in London, we have 15 offices across four continents and continue to expand globally.
