Diameter: AAA Protocol for IMS and LTE Networks
This white paper presents an overview of the A10 Networks AX Series family and their capabilities as they pertain to the Diameter protocol. This white paper covers how the AX Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs), which are new generation server load balancers, can support different types of Diameter applications; and outlines the benefits of deploying the AX device in an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) infrastructure. This white paper also describes how integrating an AX device into an IMS infrastructure can improve reliability, scalability, security, and availability, in order to support the growing demands of all IP-based interface Long Term Evolution (LTE), High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) and Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) networks. This white paper can be used as a reference for deploying the AX Series device in new, existing, or proprietary Diameter applications...
