Leading New Zealand telecommunications provider 2degrees has adopted the BroadForward Next Generation Diameter Signaling Controller (BroadForward DSC). Based in Auckland, New Zealand, 2degrees is a full-service communications provider of nation-wide 3G and 4G and fixed broadband services and includes Voice, data, SMS and international roaming in more than 180 countries.

As an essential core network router, the BroadForward DSC provides 2degrees with Diameter Router Agent (DRA) and Diameter Edge Agent (DEA) functionality that works across 3G, 4G/LTE, Fixed/Wi-Fi networks and ultimately 5G networks. The software solution is designed specifically to facilitate multi-protocol routing and interworking with support for protocols such as Diameter, SS7, SIP, ENUM, RADIUS and HTTP. This allows 2degrees to reduce network complexity and costs by independently integrating and operating intelligent Diameter signaling scenarios across networks and vendor-specific implementations. 

Nick Read, Head of Core and Security, 2degrees
With the adoption of the BroadForward DSC we have acquired the best software technology to support us reducing network complexity and costs, while ensuring we are ready to deal with the challenges of convergence and transition to 5G.

Taco Schoute, CEO of BroadForward
The BroadForward DSC offers engineers control of building and managing signaling scenarios across technologies, without any lock-in typically associated with products of legacy vendors.
