KSCL Convergent Billing Administration, Customer
Care System Boasts 300% Performance Increase With Compaq Servers
KSCL has successfully demonstrated
new levels of
performance and scalability for its leading-edge convergent billing
administration and customer care system Jupiter, during extensive
tests using Compaq's new generation high-end AlphaServer Systems running
OpenVMS Operating System.
During the tests, Jupiter showed a 300%
increase while running on the new generation AlphaServers with volumes in
of 11 million calls being rated per hour whilst supporting over 1,500
interactive users. The performance of Compaq's new AlphaServers and the
scalable design of Jupiter, mean that Jupiter is now capable of rating
200 million calls per day in a multiple server environment.
KSCL conducted the tests at Compaq's Enterprise System Labs in
running the latest version of Jupiter with the bandwidth offered by Fibre
Channel Storage/Works technology and the increased CPU performance
the next generation OpenVMS AlphaServer systems.
In order to maintain authenticity and ensure that the benchmark was
representative of real client business models, the system was configured
according to a business model agreed by France Telecom Mobiles. The
performance gains were achieved without any alterations to the standard
billing, administration and customer care system.
Michael Lacey, Managing Director of KSCL said: "In telecoms,
down to performance, scalability and profitability. The first two lead to
third. The result provides tangible proof of Jupiter's exceptional
and scaleability whilst demonstrating KSCL's ongoing commitment to
performance needs of its clients and prospects."
According to Rich Marcello, Vice President, OpenVMS Group, Compaq
Corporation: "The results shown here clearly demonstrate the
leadership and scaleability features of OpenVMS AlphaServers in a real
customer solution environment. In jointly delivering this benchmark,
KSCL have demonstrated their combined ongoing commitment to Jupiter
running on the OpenVMS AlphaServers."
