As Mobile broadband keeps growing apace with LTE changes, Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) are looking for ways to keep profitability and reuse most of the technologies that they develop over the years such as Online Charging Server (OCS) or Policy Control Functions. Policy in its general scope includes authorization authentication, Charging and Quality of service. Diameter is without a doubt now the standardized interface for such functions: LTE has elected it and a smooth migration should be the only concerns for keeping network agile.
Marben proposes a software solution dedicated to run any hardware or cloud infrastructure to cope with such new challenge of manipulating Diameter session instead of proprietary ones. MARBEN DiamX Gateway solves the Mediation between Diameter based interfaces from EPC or LTE equipment and legacy systems with former protocols (MAP, LDAP, CAMEL) or new platform e.g. OCS or PCRF.
