HP Selects TimesTen's Real-time Database for Its HP OpenCall Intelligent Network Platforms.
TimesTen Performance Software today announced that Hewlett-Packard Company plans to incorporate the TimesTen(TM) in-memory database into a future version of the HP OpenCall Intelligent Network (IN) platform.
Widely deployed in over 500 worldwide SS7 wireline and wireless networks, HP's OpenCall products are highly flexible, carrier-grade computing platforms designed for the creation, execution, and management of IN services running in voice and data communication networks. TimesTen will greatly increase the scalability of HP OpenCall IN in-memory databases, enabling customers to deliver their applications and services even more cost-effectively than before and with unprecedented performance -- capabilities which are instrumental to processing voice and data network traffic in real-time.
"Our collaboration with TimesTen is part of HP's ongoing strategy to incorporate the best industry standard technology in to the HP OpenCall product line," said Jean-Rene Bouvier, general manager of HP's Telecom Infrastructure Division. "The TimesTen database provides a unique combination of real-time performance and industry standard APIs that are integrated cost-effectively into HP OpenCall."
"The telecommunications industry is highly competitive to the point where connecting calls in one second instead of three seconds can make the difference between keeping a customer and losing one," said James R. Groff, CEO of TimesTen Performance Software. "TimesTen's real-time performance and standards-based technology provides telecommunications companies with the ability to service their customers better by improving response rates and reducing time to market with key services."
With TimesTen, applications built on HP OpenCall IN can utilize tens of gigabytes of main-memory to process time-critical information under the 64-bit addressing provided by HP-UX 11.0. This expansive scalability means applications can support much larger subscriber bases and highly intensive transaction rates. The integration of TimesTen and HP OpenCall over industry standard SQL and ODBC SQL interfaces enables HP to provide support for a wide range of third party applications. HP also selected TimesTen because the database provides new on-line features and can take full advantage of the HP OpenCall uninterrupted service capabilities.
