Traffix Will Participate in Several Working Groups That Reflect Typical Diameter Use Cases to Assist Operators
FREEHOLD, New Jersey - Traffix Systems, the 4G & Diameter control plane experts, today announced that it joined the GSMA as an associate member. The GSMA represents the interests of mobile operators worldwide. Spanning more than 220 countries, the GSMA unites nearly 800 of the world's mobile operators, as well as more than 200 companies in the broader mobile ecosystem, including handset makers, software companies, equipment providers, Internet companies, and media and entertainment organisations.
"We welcome Traffix with its seasoned specialization in Diameter signaling solutions, to the GSMA. The Traffix team's deep understanding of the control plane will contribute to many of our technical groups, and ease the move to 4G technologies for our members," said Michael O'Hara, Chief Marketing Officer, GSMA.
"We are looking forward to participating in GSMA activities and to broaden the industry's focus on the growing centrality of signaling in 4G technologies and in many 3G use cases," commented Ben Volkow, CEO of Traffix. "We have already begun to take an active role in several technical groups and to share our years of experience in working with Diameter protocol."
Traffix staff will be contributing their Diameter expertise in several GSMA working groups. Here are a few examples:
- The Inter-Working, Roaming Expert Group (IREG) that specifies technical, operational and performance issues supporting international roaming.
- The Packet Working Group (PACKET) that specifies technical, operational and performance issues supporting international roaming in 2.5G, 3G and LTE. The group focuses on the study from a compatibility and interoperability perspective of the transition from 2.5 to 3G to LTE.
- Roaming & Interconnect over LTE (RILTE) group whose goal is to understand the impact of the addition of LTE and EPC to the existing roaming ecosystem.
- IWG, Interconnect Working Group, that has the overall responsibility for interconnection and interworking related matters aimed at improving the quality of operator interconnection and interworking relationships worldwide between operators and third parties, and between operators themselves.
