LIMERICK, Ireland -- January 29, 2013

Tango Telecom, (www.tangotelecom.com), the leading provider of Policy and
Charging Control and Advanced Messaging Solutions, today announced
unprecedented performance figures for its Diameter Signalling Controller –

In recent tests, iAX™ DSC has achieved a sustained performance of over 220,000
diameter messages per second per blade, based on dual CPU blades with Intel
Xeon X5670’s clocked at 2.93Ghz and running at 70% CPU utilization. The system
delivers  over 1,500,000 messages per second from a single blade chassis in a
fully redundant configuration, demonstrating unprecedented scalability from
commodity computing elements. iAX™ DSC has been deployed with several
operators as a key component of Tango Telecom’s next generation Policy

Kieran Kelly, CTO, Tango Telecom, comments, “In order to adapt mobile networks
to maximise the advantages of next generation signaling, operators
increasingly need sophisticated Diameter routing, interworking, load balancing
and high availability capabilities. iAX™ DSC is based on widely deployed
low-latency extreme-throughput packet processing technology from our Data
Policy Enforcement product, and represents a x 3 improvement on the previous
industry leading performance. The strength of our DSC comes from many years of
experience with the evolving capabilities of existing networks and a proven
reputation for interoperability with major vendors and for solving
interworking and compatibility problems. Coupled with the established industry
leading performance of our iAX™ platform, we believe that our DSC product has
a major role to play in the engineering of next generation mobile networks.”

The DSC can be configured to meet specific network requirements including but
not limited to the following:

  *As a 3GPP compliant Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) for Policy to enable key
    functions such as session binding, load balancing, failover and
    intelligent routing
  *As a Diameter Edge Agent (DEA) as outlined in the GSMA guidelines, to
    facilitate seamless roaming for LTE subscribers while ensuring network
    security with effective topology hiding
  *As a 3GPP compliant Inter-Working Function (IWF) to reduce the cost and
    complexity of adding new network elements

Tango Telecom’s Diameter Signalling Controller avoids the need for complex
integration and customisations as operators’ grow their networks; reducing the
cost and time of new implementions while increasing overall network
reliability and scalability.
