ANALYST NOTE

“The centralized signaling and routing control (CSRC) market is not new, but the platforms are expanding as operators look to scale networks more efficiently with the rise in mobile broadband traffic. CSRC platforms are a class of solutions designed to help operators relieve congestion and simplify network management as they bridge legacy networks and next-generation IP,” notes Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics Research.

Continues Myers: “The convergence of IP and legacy networks creates a complex signaling environment. CSRC platforms facilitate interworking between the two by enabling operators to manage both legacy and next-gen signaling protocols, including SIP, Diameter, SS7, and Radius.”

CENTRALIZED SIGNALING AND ROUTING CONTROL HIGHLIGHTS

  • To date, centralized signaling and routing control (CSRC) platforms have primarily been adopted for IP interexchange with Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) redirect utilizing local policy
  • A number of different applications can be integrated in a CSRC platform to broaden capabilities, including ENUM/Domain Name System (DNS), breakout gateway control function (BGCF), home subscriber server (HSS), Diameter signaling control, IMS call session control function (CSCF), and policy and charging rules function (PCRF)
  • There are a few vendors in the CSRC space, including Italtel, NetNumber, and Sonus, that are finding success with operators that have a mix of legacy and next-gen networks, particularly large tier 1s
  • Infonetics is predicting a cumulative $282 million will be spent globally on centralized signaling and routing control equipment from 2014 to 2018, driven by LTE network expansion
