Capitalizing on Data in Telecommunications: The Cassandra Way

Telecommunications mediation is the process of handling Call Data Records (CDR’s) coming through specialized hardware switches that are connected to the infrastructure of the telecommunications company. The standard industry requirements of these processes are the archiving of original raw data for auditing purposes, decoding and persisting of the extracted Call Data Records for applying rating, billing, reporting and feeding processed data to other sub systems specific to each telecoms platform. The number of CDR's and their size has exploded since mobility got an enormous boost in recent years. A new and non-traditional approach is needed to achieve these requirements. By combining QAFE-based architecture platform with the hardware power of the cutting edge Oracle Exalogic and the scaleable, flexible and highly performing DataStax enterprise, we achieved astonishing results. The solution not only allowed us to achieve industry standard requirements but also opened up the door for new requirements, realizing crucial functionality for the industry. Specifically the ability to perform analytics, reporting and KPI’s in a time period spanning several years. In the presentation, there will be focus on the combination of a private cloud solution (public clouds are not an option here due to legislation) and DataStax enterprise. A working benchmark can show performance numbers of the real time processing and the storage of big amounts of CDR’s from several sources.
