Market Snapshot


Global Diameter Signaling Market is expected to register a CAGR of 44.81% during the forecast period 2019–2025.


Diameter signaling is used by a broad range of network elements for the exchange of information related to session tracking, device tracking, data usage, and others. A Diameter node can exchange information with another Diameter node, either directly or through intermediary nodes called agents, due to the peer-to-peer architecture of the Diameter. The Diameter signaling controllers provide communication service that overcomes Diameter signaling scalability, performance, and interoperability challenges in IP multimedia systems (IMS) and long-term evolution (LTE) networks. Diameter is a next-gen industry-standard protocol that is used to exchange authorization, authentication, and accounting (AAA) information in IMS and LTE networks. The proliferation of smartphones and increasing mobile traffic boosts the volume of Diameter signaling.


Increasing ownership of mobile phones and the utilization of the rnet of Things (IoT) devices have led to rising demand for Diameter signaling solutions. Over the last five years, the ownership of smartphones has increased significantly, leading to high use of the Internet among individuals. The advancements in technology have led to increased use of smartphones, as various mobile applications are being developed every year, generating a significant amount of data, thereby resulting in considerable data traffic. According to Excelacom Inc., 58,520 applications are downloaded by end-users per minute from Apple's App Store. Furthermore, the number of these applications is also increasing. Therefore, with an increase in data generated on an ily basis, there has been a rise in the requirement for Diameter signaling. Moreover, market players also seek opportunities arising from the development of 5G technology. However, roaming complexity is hampering et growth.


Diameter signaling platform plays a vital role in the functioning of IoT-enabled devices. As the vendors in the electronics industry are coming up with new technologies, there has been an increase in the number of IoT devices, which is resulting navy traffic and signal on the current network infrastructure. Machine-to-machine communication and machine-to-infrastructure communication are already taking place, generating a large amount of data, and thereby increasing data traffic. Additionally, the increase in the number of connected vehicles and prevalence of smart homes and smart cities, among others, are also increasing data traffic; therefore, Diameter signaling is important as a Diameter signaling controller provides communication between networks through efficient routing of messages by preventing network overloads and interworking different variations of Diameter signaling between devices. Furthermore, IoT is rapidly becoming a mainstream technology in the consumer electronics market, which is also driving the global market. Therefore, with an increasing number of devices connecting to network infrastructure, the demand for Diameter signaling is expected to rise considerably.
