Diameter Routing Agent (DRA)

Product Overview

The Jinny Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) complies with the main standard bodies’ specifications and it provides an efficient and scalable solution that centralises and simplifies the management of routing between any signalling endpoints in the network.

The Jinny DRA has various applications. One important use case involves the routing of signalling traffic between Policy Charging and Control (PCC) network elements.

The DRA ensures that all Diameter sessions for Gx, Rx and S9 for a certain IP CAN session reach the same PCRF when multiple and separately addressable PCRFs have been deployed in a Diameter realm.

The DRA also has a vital role to play in protecting mobile broadband networks from overload. For instance after a service blackout of a popular OTT service, the OTT servers recover and all the smartphone app-clients re-register to the service generating a spike in Diameter traffic.

The DRA also facilitates the maintenance (additions/removal) of control plane network nodes and it reduces the time required for the configuration of these nodes.

Additional scenarios and use cases that simplify network topology, maintenance and improve network security are also supported.
