European MVNE Teleena goes live with the BroadForward BFX Interface Gateway enabling advanced Diameter routing and protocol interworking scenarios.
Online PR News – 19-December-2014 – Nieuwegein, The Netherlands – Teleena, the innovative mobile network telecommunications company from the Netherlands today announced it has become the first European MVNE to go live with a Next Generation Diameter Signaling Controller (DSC). BroadForward’s BFX Interface Gateway enables multiple use cases for Teleena including Diameter routing, load-balancing, mediation and 3G-4G interworking for LTE roaming.
The BFX Interface Gateway is a key element in the service innovation strategy of Teleena. It facilitates the ever-increasing use of Diameter signaling in Teleena’s mobile network. As the number of signaling messages being sent is rising rapidly, this puts pressure on all parts of the network – and particularly on gateways, charging systems, policy servers and user-data repositories. By deploying BFX, Teleena can relieve this pressure while boosting operational efficiency and increasing the reliability of the internal signaling network. Using the service orchestration environment of BFX, Teleena sets up advanced use cases without any need for scripting or vendor involvement.
The flexibility to innovate at the speed of the ecosystem is increasingly important to Teleena as it offers managed mobile service solutions to many different types of customers, such as mobile (virtual) network operators, cable companies, retail brands and other enterprises throughout the world. Currently Teleena operates over 20 brands for customers like Vodafone, BT and Liberty Global. This year Teleena was awarded the title of Best MVNE at the 2014 MVNO World Congress and together with BroadForward they were shortlisted by the GSMA for Best Mobile Technology at the 2014 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Ruurd Sieffers, Director of Engineering at Teleena, commented “For Teleena, time to market is crucial. BFX is the only Diameter Signaling Controller that provides us with the ability to own and control our signaling network and independently resolve issues across multi-vendor environments. This a crucial for us to satisfy the differentiation needs of our individual customers. It allows us to be the fastest innovator in our market, and at the same time structural reduce integration and hardware costs.”
