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 performance tests using Compaq's new generation high-end AlphaServer Systems running the OpenVMS Operating System.

During the tests, Jupiter showed a 300% performance increase while running on the new generation AlphaServers with volumes in excess 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 more than 200 million calls per day in a multiple server environment.

KSCL conducted the tests at Compaq's Enterprise System Labs in Littleton, Mass, running the latest version of Jupiter with the bandwidth offered by Fibre Channel Storage/Works technology and the increased CPU performance provided by 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 resulting performance gains were achieved without any alterations to the standard Jupiter billing, administration and customer care system.

Michael Lacey, Managing Director of KSCL said: "In telecoms, technology boils down to performance, scalability and profitability. The first two lead to the third. The result provides tangible proof of Jupiter's exceptional performance and scaleability whilst demonstrating KSCL's ongoing commitment to exceeding the performance needs of its clients and prospects."

According to Rich Marcello, Vice President, OpenVMS Group, Compaq Computer Corporation: "The results shown here clearly demonstrate the performance leadership and scaleability features of OpenVMS AlphaServers in a real world customer solution environment. In jointly delivering this benchmark, Compaq and KSCL have demonstrated their combined ongoing commitment to Jupiter customers, running on the OpenVMS AlphaServers."
