Diameter signaling is hot, and a new company is stepping up to take advantage of the opportunity. The new firm, called Diametriq, just launched and is based on several assets of what had been IntelliNet, including its former CEO Anjan Ghosal.
According to a press release
announcing the new company, Diametriq is offering tools designed to help operators manage and monetize control signal traffic as they migrate to 4G LTE. The new firm’s core product is the Diameter Routing Engine (DRE), which is based on key IntelliNet technology and provides load balancing, roaming and interworking that can be customized to specific operator requirements. The company claims its holistic approach to signaling is a differentiator in a marketplace where most competitors are focused on solving point problems.
Yankee Group Research VP Brian Partridge comments
“Diametriq is the latest entrant in what has become a red hot product category. We have seen significant request for proposal/request for information (RFP/RFI) activity and expect spending in this specialized market segment to reach well over U.S.$200 million by 2015. Diametriq will have its work cut out for it to chip away share from early market leader Tekelec, which has dominated early deal flow. The good news is that the company has solid leadership and credible technology assets and experience coming from IntelliNet. We expect to welcome more competitors to this space in the coming year as 4G deployments ramp up.”
