DRA header imageDiameter Routing Agent

The SVI-DRA is at the core of a Diameter network providing comprehensive, carrier grade traffic management enabling service providers IMS and LTE core networks to run smoothly.

SVI-DRA Diameter Routing Agent

Sitting at the center of a Diameter network the SVI-DRA reduces complexity. High volume traffic is managed through dynamic load balancing and configurable throttling whilst multi-vendor support is provided by onboard mediation. Powerful routing, filtering and message manipulation available as standard with complex policy building provided through the onboard policy engine. NFV compliant the SVI-DRA provides a secure, scalable, high availability platform providing total control of an operators Diameter network.

 

SVI-DRA Features

dra mediation iconMediation Platform
The SVI-DRA acts as mediation platform within the network allowing complex routing and normalisation of messages across the Diameter network.

 

dra load balancingLoad Balancing
The Diameter Routing Agent provides load balancing and throttling to insure the optimum management of the DIAMETER network.

 

dra throttling iconSophisticated Throttling
Multiple Transaction Criteria Records (TCR’s) can be created to define transaction allowance and actions to take; queue, ignore and reject transactions.

dra binding iconSession Binding
Bind a session to a device or cluster of devices. Start bind - Configure message or AVP to initiate bind. End bind on receipt of correct response or timeout.

 

dra dictionaries iconDiameter Dictionaries
Used to define Diameter Messages, AVP formats, contents and ENUM resolution. DRA can be configured to consist of 3GPP and vendor specific dictionaries.

 

DRA filteringFiltering
Message filtering can be applied to avoid known issues by comparing message headers and AVP contents against configured black lists and white lists.

DRA redirectsRedirects
The SVI-DRA can act as a redirect server by redirecting messages to another service, as well providing advanced load balancing and throttling.

 

DRA routingCentralised Routing
The SVI-DRA provides centralised routing based upon message headers and AVP’s, reattemps, load balancing profiles and external lookups.

 

DRA message manipulationMessage Manipulation
Powerful regular-expression based manipulation of message header and AVP contents allows for removal, creation and replacement.
