Signaling control and gateways

Make your signaling network more cost-effective, easy to manage and future-proof using the cloud-based, native Tieto Evolved Signalling Controller (ESC).

Smarter signaling, routing and control

Tieto's Evolved Signaling Controller is an all-in-one solution that seamlessly handles signaling control and routing in 2G, 3G and 4G networks as well as the upcoming 5G network. It allows network operators to reuse capacity easily when traffic moves from legacy to modern networks, and also serves as a single replacement for solutions like signaling transfer point (STP), signaling relay point (SRP), intelligent signaling gateway (SGW), diameter routing agent (DRA) and diameter edge agent (DEA). It also includes signaling firewall functionality to protect networks from security threats.
