With recently acquired Traffix, F5 helps mobile operators reach maximum network performance and easily support advanced LTE services

F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking (ADN), today announced that it will participate in several conference sessions and host a booth as a Bronze sponsor of the LTE World Summit 2012, taking place May 22-24 at the International Convention Center (CCIB) in Barcelona. F5 will also participate in the conference as a Gold sponsor of the "Handling the Signaling Surge" Focus Day on Tuesday, May 22. Visit F5 at booth #43 to learn more about the compelling business value that F5® Traffix solutions deliver to Carrier Service Providers.

F5 will highlight several LTE solutions, including F5 Traffix products that manage and control traffic in the data and control planes, which reflect the company's added value as an expert vendor in essential core network services. Solutions such as intelligent traffic steering and Diameter routing in both the data and signaling planes illustrate how F5's service provider solutions deliver optimal network resource management and performance.

"We are very pleased that F5 is contributing its knowledge and years of real-world expertise with IP-based applications, data, and signaling in LTE networks to the LTE World Summit, which has grown exponentially this year as network rollouts are on the rise worldwide," said Giles Cummings, Events Director at Informa. "Handling the explosion of mobile data is a key concern for LTE's operational success."

"As operators deploy LTE across their footprints and migrate their installed base users to LTE devices, they must be ready for the resulting challenges," said Ben Volkow, VP of Product Development at F5 Networks. "Few network infrastructure vendors understand the complexities related to both the data and signaling planes. Given our expertise in IP and Diameter signaling, we're excited to play an active role at this event to help educate and assist operators in successfully overcoming the challenges related to LTE."

F5 Presentations during LTE World Summit's "Handling the Signaling Surge" Focus Day, May 22:

  • At 10:00 CEST, F5's Ben Volkow will explain how operators benefit significantly by taking an interoperable and open approach to building their LTE networks. His presentation is entitled "The Benefits of Approaching Diameter as the Nervous System of the Network."
  • At 10:30 CEST, F5 Solution Architect Peter Nas will share his knowledge of Diameter during a panel discussion focusing on "What is the Right Time and What is the Right Way to Deploy Diameter Signaling Solutions?"

Additional F5 Presentations during the LTE World Summit:

  • On May 23 at 17:40 CEST, in the OTT and Applications track, F5 Solution Architect Bart Salaets will share his expertise in IP solutions during the panel on "Video and Premium Content on LTE Networks."
  • On May 24 at 15:30 CEST, in the Handling the Mobile Data Explosion track, F5 Solution Architect Peter Nas will draw on his extensive knowledge of deploying Diameter routing solutions to explain typical LTE use cases such as policy and tiered charging, family data plans, roaming, and related topics.
