Tekelec and Israel’s Allot Communications Ltd. just wrapped interoperability testing for the 3GPP Sd Interface they say offers service providers more powerful application-policy control and enforcement with a more efficient network architecture. The testing was performed to support a global Tier 1 wireless carrier that plans to implement application-specific policies. The new Diameter Sd Interface helps operators offer subscribers new digital lifestyle services, including the connected home, mobile payments, and mobile health and analytics. It communicates between the Tekelec Policy Server and Allot’s Service Gateway Sigma E Traffic Detection Function to help enable detection and enforcement control over apps.
