Depends on the bandwidth you have and your actual requirements. You may need specific 3GPP interfaces, which will be available in commercial products, and you can straight away start with your application. Vendors generally take care of IOT issues. (Well, interoperability is an issue in Diameter implementations...)
On the other hand if you have the time and resources, you can build things on top of OpenDiameter.

Disclaimer: We are a Diameter vendor but I believe this comment is fairly objective :)

openDiameter is not used yet in Production environment to my knowledge, although several companies have developed their own extensions and are at the final validation stage already, and as far as I know they are satisfied with openDiameter.

I have configured freediameter server and client application and exchanged messages using test app. I would like to know how High availability or fault tolerance is supported for sessions in Free diameter. I am planning to write Ro and Rf extensions over fd and would require some HA. Basically I am looking for a method to extract stack session states and store in in my app and during failover use this info to re-build the stack state in standby.

Any help would be highly appreciated

I am running freeDiameter on a RHEL6 server.I have installed and configured it to use the Radius Gateway extension.
I can successfully send radius messages to freeDiameter, and get radius messages back. Now I want to set up usernames and passwords. With freeRadius, I used an LDAP database.Ideally, I would like to use an LDAP database with freeDiameter. Is this possible?If not, where/how can I set up the usernames and passwords for my testing?

We have a requirement wherein we have been given a Diameter server, and we need to deploy a "Diameter-Credit-Control-Application" scenario.

We require a client for the same. Also, ability to modify the client-code will be very useful.

Does there exist a (open-source) client for the same? Any pointers?

My project needs the freeDiameter to act as a server connected to two telecom entities (HSS and MME) each one with different IP address and with different protocol and AVP-IDs.Do you think Is it possible to make the freeDiameter to act with some minor changes as above or it is very complicated and I should think developing a connector which will connect between the two different freeDiameter servers (one for the HSS and the second for the MME) ? Please kindly advise.
