BroadForward is the leading expert in Diameter routing and interworking; inventors of the BFX Interface Gateway, the Next Generation Diameter Signaling Controller for 3G, 4G/LTE, IMS, Fixed, Wi-Fi and M2M networks.

Solutions

  • Diameter routing (DSC)

    The BFX Interface Gateway is the Next Generation routing and interworking solution for 3G, 4G/LTE, IMS, Fixed and Wi-Fi networks. BFX is a unique single-design software solution combining DRA, DEA and interworking. The service orchestration GUI allows users to freely combine protocols with on-board functions to setup advanced service scenarios, without the need for scripting or development.

  • Diameter mediation

    With over 50 different Diameter interfaces and numerous vendor specific variants, the industry clearly requires an effective way to deal with incompatibilities and maintain connectivity between these – still evolving – interfaces. BroadForward’s BFX Interface Gateway delivers significant reduction of time, cost and vendor dependencies, as it achieves interoperability through configuration rather than scripting or development.

  • Protocol interworking

    BroadForward’s BFX Interface Gateway offers users a flexible and integrated set of routing, interworking and service creation capabilities that work across 3GPP based networks (2G, 3G, LTE, IMS) and non-3GPP networks (Wi-Fi, Cable, DSL, FTTH, Fixed), without the need for scripting or development. BFX’s on-board interworking function enables connections to and from virtually any Network or IT interface. Read more



  • 3G-4G roaming, MAP-Diameter IWF

    3G – 4G/LTE roaming Interworking between existing 2G/3G networks and new fast growing 4G/LTE networks is becoming a high priority. Service providers are keen to maximize mobile reach by enabling services between LTE and existing networks and to ensure seamless service continuity for their subscribers. For (smaller) operators and MVNOs, acquiring LTE technology is often a big hurdle. BroadForward’s BFX Interface Gateway provides a viable alternative.

  • CAP-Diameter interworking

    For decades, operators have been using CAMEL Application Part (CAP) as the signaling protocol for service control in the Intelligent Network architecture, allowing them to enable various unique value added services, including prepaid services, SMS and MMS. Despite the evolution to LTE, the Intelligent Network still has an important part to play and will continue to do so as long as operators have legacy voice and messaging systems or continue to use circuit-switched fallback for their voice services.

  • Wi-Fi/Fixed integration, RADIUS-Diameter interworking

    Service continuity between Wi-Fi, Fixed-Line and Mobile network assets Subscribers use more and more different devices to access the network that they happen to be on (3G, LTE, Fixed or Wi-Fi). When they go online, users want access to their services whatever the network, device and location, at home, on the way or in the office. Communication service providers are looking for ways to monetize and leverage their existing Fixed-Line network assets by associating them with high growth mobile services.

  • IPX, DEA

    LTE interconnect and roaming IPX (“IP exchange”) providers provide interoperability of IP services and worldwide LTE roaming between service providers. Roaming between LTE networks requires an efficient international exchange mechanism with guaranteed quality-of-service between visited and home networks. Most IPX providers use traditional Diameter routers. The assumption was this would suffice. However, they are discovering that providing global LTE roaming services means dealing with different technologies (LTE and legacy) and different vendors.

  • MVNO/MVNE

    MVNOs, MVNEs and smaller operators are at a disadvantage compared to larger operators. They are even more dependent upon their network vendors to roll out new services and to resolve integration issues. This undermines one of their key advantages: their ability to deliver tailored and innovative services quickly. The flexibility to innovate at the speed of the ecosystem is increasingly important in the MVNO world.

  • VoLTE and VoWi-Fi

    Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) are taking center stage for service providers to deliver HD quality voice and multimedia services. The number of commercial VoLTE and VoWi-Fi deployments is rapidly increasing. Launching VoLTE and VoWi-Fi services require mobile operators to not only deploy the IP multimedia subsystem (IMS), but to also integrate it with the policy and charging rules function (PCRF).
