- Implemented at the heart of front-end signaling systems transmitting information to other applications, MySQL commonly handles 20,000 queries and 2,000 transactions per second, for example allowing the real-time billing of subscribers.
- MySQL databases powering the voice-mail and conferencing applications deployed by operators store up to a terabyte of data.
- Tecnotree has been relying on MySQL for several years, and plans to embed it in additional products in the future, highly valuing the “hassle free” nature of the database.
- The company also uses the Oracle database within its customer care and billing solutions.
