Setar deploys Acision’s real-time rating in Aruba

Aruban operator Setar has selected Acision’s Diameter Intelligent Signalling Controller (DiSC) to support real-time rating across its 2G, 3G and 4G-LTE networks.

By deploying Acision DiSC, Setar can effectively broker and route local and international voice traffic generated by all of its networks, providing the best customer experience and assuring appropriate tariffs are applied to all calls, regardless of the location and characteristics of the subscriber. 

As the number one telecommunications provider in Aruba, Setar brings innovation and digital technology to local communities, being the first network operator to introduce Internet, cellular, video calling, Mobile TV and wireless broadband to the Aruban market.  As part of its evolution plan towards next generation networks, including preparations to deploy VoLTE in the future, SETAR chose Acision’s DiSC to manage, optimise and differentiate network elements, while effectively charging all traffic in real-time, ensuring better service quality and reducing CAPEX and OPEX costs. 

“With the addition of DiSC to our network, we are now prepared to provide all of our mobile customers with real-time information regarding their usage of voice and data services when at home or roaming outside of Aruba”, said Raul Ponson, CTO at Setar N.V.  “We are not only ready to handle the immediate rating of all usage for Prepaid, Postpaid and Hybrid customers, but  will have a future-proof solution which, when the time is right, can manage impending  traffic from the expected rise in services such as personalised and shared mobile data plans, mobile advertising, machine-to-machine (M2M) services, MVNE  and enhanced OTT applications.”

As a Diameter Router and Broker in one system, Acision DiSC provides operators with the ability to enrich or consolidate Diameter flows within the network, and enable flexible routing and load-balancing mechanisms to prevent overload of network elements and provide designated quality of service for the selected traffic streams. Acision DiSC’s flexible service logic easily integrates into the operator network and provides ground-breaking performance at minimal cost.

Russell Grahame, General Manager and Senior Vice President at Acision North America, states: “Diameter Signalling Controller is a critical network component for mobile operators that can relieve pressure on resources, while improving operational efficiency and increasing the reliability of the LTE signalling network.”
