NTT DOCOMO Implements Oracle Communications Diameter Signaling Router to Support New LTE Infrastructure
New services give subscribers advanced mobile capabilities while traveling abroad
Redwood Shores, Calif. – October 28, 2014
NTT DOCOMO has implemented Oracle Communications Diameter Signaling Router to accelerate the launch of new LTE roaming services. With this single, scalable system, NTT DOCOMO can support its rapidly growing volume of LTE roaming subscribers.
Oracle today announced that NTT DOCOMO, the leading wireless communications service provider (CSP) in Japan with more than 63 million subscribers, has implemented Oracle Communications Diameter Signaling Router
to support roaming for its mobile customers.
Oracle Communications Diameter Signaling Router enables NTT DOCOMO to accelerate the launch of new, advanced mobile services that leverage an LTE infrastructure. The CSP can now support roaming on LTE bands to ensure subscribers have access to the same advanced capabilities while traveling abroad. With the Oracle Communications Diameter Signaling Router, NTT DOCOMO completed the entire project—from purchase order to live customer traffic—in just six months.
Oracle Communications Diameter Signaling Router was implemented as a virtualized solution providing high reliability and advanced functionality with a small physical footprint well suited to support LTE roaming. With Oracle Communications Diameter Signaling Router, NTT DOCOMO can:
Provide LTE roaming services outside of Japan
Centralize routing, traffic management, and load-balancing tasks to enable the LTE network to grow incrementally to support increasing service and traffic demands
NS Solutions Corporation, a Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, assisted NTT DOCOMO with the implementation of Oracle Communications Diameter Signaling Router, ensuring an on-time deployment in Japan.
“The rapid growth of LTE in Japan and roaming markets demands that we support LTE roaming to provide our customers with a consistently high-quality mobile experience no matter where they are. Oracle Communications Diameter Signaling Router has given us the high reliability and advanced functionality we need to support our LTE roaming services since December 2013,” said Hiroshi Nakamura, Ph.D., senior vice president, managing director, Core Network Development Department, NTT DOCOMO.
“As subscriber demands for LTE services and technologies expand internationally, CSPs must manage their networks and subscriber experiences to support data-hungry devices and applications. We are pleased to help NTT DOCOMO meet growing LTE demands and extend the benefit of LTE services well beyond Japan,” said Bhaskar Gorti, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications.
