Optimized for simultaneous loading of large data volumes as well as fast query processing. The system is capable of ingesting several billion data records each day, allowing it to accommodate the transaction rates generated by large telecommunications networks with millions of subscribers. The results of an average enquiry returns responses in seconds, not minutes.
Designed for seamless integration into existing multi-vendor and multi-service networks. The solution is easily customizable to interface with CDR/IPDR systems, log files, subscriber databases and other network nodes.
