NTT DOCOMO, the leading wireless communications service provider (CSP) in Japan with more than 63 million subscribers has implemented Oracle Communications Diameter Signaling Router to accelerate the launch of new LTE roaming services.
According to Oracle, with the implementation of the project which took just 6 months, NTT can now support roaming on LTE bands to ensure subscribers have access to the same advanced capabilities while traveling abroad.
Oracle Communications Diameter Signaling Router was implemented as a virtualized solution providing high reliability and advanced functionality with a small physical footprint well suited to support LTE roaming. The solution also provides centralized routing, traffic management, and load-balancing tasks to enable the LTE network to grow incrementally to support increasing service and traffic demands.

The rapid growth of LTE in Japan and roaming markets demands that we support LTE roaming to provide our customers with a consistently high-quality mobile experience no matter where they are. Oracle Communications Diameter Signaling Router has given us the high reliability and advanced functionality we need to support our LTE roaming services since December 2013,” said

As subscriber demands for LTE services and technologies expand internationally, CSPs must manage their networks and subscriber experiences to support data-hungry devices and applications. We are pleased to help NTT DOCOMO meet growing LTE demands and extend the benefit of LTE services well beyond Japan.
