Erlang Solutions partners with Travelping to provide next generation AAA Solutions to telecom operators
23 March 2011 – Erlang Solutions (ESL), the driver behind the worldwide uptake of the Erlang development environment, today announced its partnership with Travelping, a Germany based software vendor offering solutions for network operators to build, manage and charge their broadband services securely and efficiently. Together, the two companies will offer operators highly scalable, robust and distributed, control plane solutions to build AAA and session control systems for their next generation networks (NGN).
Through this partnership Travelping has adopted Erlang, the programming language, as a key technology to develop the AAA application server running RADIUS and DIAMETER applications. Both companies will extend this offering by creating new DIAMETER application based on the 3gpp and ETSI standards. This application will be fully supported through the ESL Erlang Distribution offering built by ESL’s powerful Continuous Integration System which is due to be released as a hosted offering soon.
3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the next-generation network beyond 3G. In addition to enabling fixed to mobile migrations of Internet applications such as Voice over IP (VoIP), video streaming, music downloading, mobile TV and many others, LTE networks will also provide the capacity to support in demand for connectivity from a new generation of consumer devices adapted to those new mobile applications.
The AAA Application server and services of Erlang Solutions and Travelping will be offered to all its existing customers. The offering will also span consultancy, product development, support, testing and training workshops that will cover next generation networks and Erlang at the NGN Service Labs in Magdeburg. The Lab allows a complete NGN based networks to be simulated and interactive design workshops are also planned.
“Since we started using Erlang two years ago, the productivity of my company has gone up dramatically enabling Travelping to create operator class solutions that we are confident have scalability and fault tolerance from the first design.” said Holger Winkelmann, MD of Travelping. “This in turn enables us to rapidly customise our solutions more exactly to our customers’ needs.”
Stuart Whitfield, CEO of Erlang Solutions comments, “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Travelping. With Erlang Solutions’ help Travelping are providing an essential technology which will assist operators in bringing next generation billing solutions to market and also help them to implement Next Generation mobile networks successfully.”
