Leading BSS vendor, Optiva announced that its customizable, carrier-grade Optiva Charging Engine is now available on Google Cloud Platform(GCP).
Optiva which was previously Redknee, claims that Optiva Charging Engine on GCP can dynamicaly scale to handle more than 500,000 transactions per second. With Optiva Charging Engine, telcos can leverage the speed and elasticity of the cloud to process 10 times the transactions and save at one-tenth the cost compared to an Oracle deployment.
As the volume of mobile device usage and demand for data has exploded and is reaching new heights with 5G and IoT, Optiva wanted to help its customers rethink the costly strategy of deploying on-premise infrastructures. Cloud elasticity, and specifically Google Cloud Platform and Cloud Spanner, provides the best solutions.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Optiva Charging Engine became available on Kubernetes and on Google Cloud Spanner. The availability of Optiva Charging Engine on Kubernetes allows telcos to “containerize” charging and with that simplify its deployment, reducing time and effort compared to on-premise deployments. On top of that, running Optiva Charging Engine on Google Cloud Spanner provides telcos with real technical and competitive performance advantage. This advantage leverages the database’s unique ability to automatically scale and synchronize reads and writes across unlimited nodes with low latency and strong consistency through the use of Google TrueTime API.
The benefits cloud affords telcos also enable them to shift greater focus from infrastructure to data analytics, actionable insights and leveraging Optiva Charging Engine to launch new services to market faster. This provides telcos with the opportunity to take their subscriber experience to the next level, increasing subscriber loyalty and retention.
