One of the solutions in HP’s OpenCall IMS
portfolio worth knowing about is OpenCall Intelligent Network Server (OC INS). This is a service platform designed to support a variety of different network types—from legacy wireline and wireless to next-generation IMS.
OC INS is built on a foundation of HP’s NonStop S-Series and Integrity NonStop servers. It packages together key telecom functions required by service providers, delivering reliability, scalability and data integrity to core network services.
HP made OC INS reliable to prevent service interruptions and the resulting customer dissatisfaction. The solution is scalable so carriers can seamlessly support their growing customer bases with minimal expansion effort. Data integrity is also a key component of the system, protecting subscriber information even in the event of hardware failure.
Creating scalable applications capable of spanning multiple standards and multiple generations of networks is no easy task. The developers at HP who created OC INS took it upon themselves to give carriers a leg up by overcoming some of the complexities inherent in network application creation. This was achieved by offloading as much of the development work as possible.
For example, C Application Programming Interface
comes native with OC INS, giving carriers maximum control over signaling layers. Similarly, OC INS includes Telephony Service Creating Environment, a graphical tool for rapidly creating and deploying applications.
Also, OC INS includes a speedy, scalable memory-based database environment for optimal performance and fault tolerance. Data is stored on disk if needed, and synchronization between servers is performed automatically.
