Challenges

  • Integrate a database well suited
    to power the mission critical Tecnotree solutions deployed by telecom operators
    in networks counting over 50 million subscribers.
  • Standardize on one database for
    the core Tecnotree products, while meeting the company’s technical and economic
    requirements.
  • Select a database delivering the configuration
    flexibility needed to provide the best performance and reliability in different
    settings.

Solution

  • Evaluation and selection of MySQL
    as embedded database based on its high performance, reliability, flexibility of
    deployment and cost-effectiveness.
  • Tecnotree leverages the built-in MySQL
    replication to confer up to 5 nines (99.999%) availability to its solutions; ensuring
    subscribers will continuously be able to access the operators’ network and
    billing infrastructure.
  • 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.

“With MySQL we get a high
performance solution that simultaneously delivers the flexibility to serve our
different database needs.”
Timo Ahomäki, CTO, Tecnotree
