Partitionware and IVR Technologies announced a new partnership, centred on Partitionware’s innovative Diameter Access Gateway solution.

Diameter is a key protocol in next generation networks, providing the communications interface to enable billing and other services in LTE, IMS and VoLTE networks. Partitionware’s Diameter Access Gateway enables deep integration with Diameter-based real-time (Online) charging solutions and is an essential component that enables complex billing capabilities for the enhanced services that IVR Technologies delivers.

The Diameter Access Gateway masks the complexity of underlying Diameter signalling, across a range of interfaces, such as Ro and Gy, and presents a consistent, XML-based API interface to enable integration with key BSS (Business Support Systems) resources for enhanced service solutions. This allows them to access and provide real-time billing information, and to apply relevant charging and policy control.

Diameter is fundamental to a wide range of services, from today’s voice and video applications to emerging IoT use cases, which demand innovative pricing and policy control. The Diameter Access Gateway is service agnostic, allowing IVR Technologies to explore new use cases and to extend its service portfolio to embrace new opportunities.

Barry Sher, Co-Founder and SVP, Business Development, IVR Technologies
With the shift to Diameter gathering momentum, we needed to be able to easily extend our platform to enable connectivity to Diameter-based solutions in LTE and IMS-based networks. Partitionware gives us this capability, with minimal impact on our existing architecture. This builds on the success of our existing joint deployments, which include connectivity to MAP / CAMEL network interfaces.

Mike Bromwich, CEO of Partitionware 
We’re able to back the Diameter Access Gateway with a range of flexible deployment models and competitive pricing, which means that it can fit any opportunity and any network.
