Diameter Routing Segmentation: PT Announces Routing Segmentation for the SEGway Universal Diameter Router

Diameter Routing Segmentation: PT Announces Routing Segmentation for the SEGway 
Universal Diameter Router 
Carriers Reap New Revenue Opportunities and Reduce Network and
Administration Costs 
ROCHESTER, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/13 --  PT (NASDAQ: PTIX), a
leading global supplier of advanced network communications, today
introduced its Diameter Routing Segmentation capability for the
SEGway Universal Diameter Router (UDR). Routing segmentation provides
network operators the ability to create multiple instances of
Diameter routing on a single platform, as opposed to other solutions
in which the addition of further Diameter routing capabilities
requires additional hardware resources and network architecture. 
The recent upsurge in deployment of LTE/EPC/Diameter networks has
presented service providers with a wide variety of hurdles that
impact performance and operating expense.  
Examples are: 

--  Vast increases in volume of Diameter traffic
--  Multitudes of interconnected network elements
--  Countless inter-network connections
--  Redundant architecture resulting in more CAPEX and OPEX costs
--  Increased multi-vendor interoperability issues
--  Managing consolidated routing rules for both intra- and inter-network

PT's SEGway UDR with Diameter Routing Segmentation enables the
virtualization of Diameter routing -- within a network -- or between
interconnected networks. Each of these virtual Diameter Routing
Agents or Diameter Edge Agents has its own separate set of routing
and screening rules to shape traffic on a per-peer basis. This
shaping includes traffic flow control, throttling, and congestion
avoidance, and is quite simple to implement. SEGway's unparalleled
flexible routing concept provides greater and more precise controls,
thus allowing service providers to quickly deploy more advanced
revenue-generating features.  
Diameter Routing Agents and Diameter Edge Agents that include routing
segmentation capabilities enable LTE/EPC/Diameter network service
providers to design, implement, and maintain the most efficient and
cost effective architectures to meet their individual business
"PT worked extensively with service providers to identify and resolve
critical architectural and traffic issues presented by evolution to
the Evolved Packet Core," said John Slusser, President and CEO of PT.
"As the signaling experts, we continue to deliver innovations in
technology to make our customers more successful and raise the
industry standard for excellence." 
PT's SEGway Signaling solutions are deployed in over one thousand
locations, providing the Signaling backbone for many of the world's
premier wireless networks. With its small footprint and high
throughput capacity, SEGway is widely recognized as the industry's
leading signaling architecture, with the ability to scale from small
to very large networks.
