How a Diameter Interworking Function Works

As 4G networks are rolled out into a hybrid mix of legacy 2G & 3G networks, operators deploy a Diameter Interworking Function or IWF to ensure their Diameter networks can successfully interconnect with multiple vendors, implementing multiple signalling standards.

We’ve produced a short video to provide an overview of how an IWF works…

Squire Technologies SVI-IWF Interworking Function enables mobile operators 4G DIAMETER networks to seamlessly inter-op with legacy networks enabling 4G <-> 3G Roaming capabilities. The SVI-IWF also enables WiFi or Mobile Data Offloading and Legacy Integration.

Renna Mobile implements Squire Technologies Interworking Function to integrate a Diameter based OCS system

Oman’s fastest growing and leading mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) Renna Mobile have completed the first phase implementation of UK signalling experts Squire Technologies Interworking Function (IWF) as an instrumental part of their network transformation.

The solution provides a seamless and highly cost effective means for Renna Mobile to bridge the border between legacy SS7 and their Diameter based OCS/billing platform.

While meeting with Renna Mobile’s specific requirements as opposed to providing a costly vanilla solution; the virtualised interworking functions modular design now allows Renna Mobile to deliver further integration functionality in their network.

Group CTO Milan Jovancic commented “We required a flexible solution in delivering the specific functionality, meeting our needs and technical specifications while being on budget. Squire Technologies SVI-IWF Interworking Function delivered this. We will now use the SVI-IWF to leverage further integration in our network and our hosting operator.”

Having experience of Squire Technologies through their voice services and traditional gateway products the team at Renna Mobile approached them looking for a cost efficient end-of-life replacement plan having had vendors push overly complex solutions at prohibitive costs.
