Openwave Mobility, a software innovator enabling operators to manage and monetize encrypted mobile data, today announced a collaboration with Mirantis, the pure play OpenStack company.
Openwave Mobility’s Subscriber Data Management (SDM) solution, vUDR, has been validated within the Mirantis OpenStack environment.
Openwave Mobility claims that vUDR is the industry’s first NFV-enabled User Data Repository (UDR) and has been deployed by several tier one operators globally to manage subscriber profile data across voice and data networks. UDR solutions are critical for virtualized networks as they help decouple applications that have awareness of subscribers from IT provisioning systems. This increases the speed and flexibility of virtualized applications and dramatically cuts provisioning time for new subscriber services.
Openwave Mobility’s cloud-based vUDR goes above and beyond traditional UDR systems. In-built federation and replication means that network applications can read and write data from any data center or data silo. And while the NFV infrastructure is typically built using commodity servers which provide 99.9% availability at best, by using proprietary software processes, vUDR is able to deliver 99.999% (five-nines) availability on commodity virtual machines. vUDR is nevertheless lightweight and agile, and it has enabled our customers to onboard new applications in just two weeks, compared to the average subscriber data provisioning integration of nine months.
