PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Narus, the leading provider of convergent OSS mediation solutions for communications service providers, announced today that it has established a new performance standard for billing mediation using Intel-based servers from IBM.The performance level achieved - over 10 billion records per day – is equivalent to having all of the world's mobile phone users (currently estimated at one billion) each generating five billable events, such as placing a phone call, sending a short message or email or browsing a web-site via mobile phone, all in a 24 hour period on a single Narus system (with two records generated per event). The benchmark was performed using a cluster of 20 NEBS-compliant IBM eServer xSeries 343 systems with dual Intel® Pentium® III 1.26GHz processors running the open source Linux® operating system. The combination of carrier-grade industry standard Intel architecture-based servers and the open source Linux® operating system, shows how very high levels of performance and scalability can be achieved cost-effectively. In fact, Narus has exceeded this performance level in customer production environments; one major global production customer is processing over 12 billion IPDRs2 (Internet Protocol Detail Records) per day on a Narus system believed to be the world's largest mediation production environment.Another major customer in Asia has not lost a single record after 10 months in production with Narus. Narus systems in benchmark and production environments provide virtually unsurpassed performance with zero data and revenue loss."This benchmark confirms what we have seen in recent mobile performance comparisons against competitors during customer proof of concepts", said Peter Green, president and CEO, Narus. "In these environments, we found that our performance was 50-350% better than competitors, greatly cutting our customers' hardware costs. We could implement our solution in days rather than weeks or months allowing operators to deploy new services more quickly, more reliably and with far greater revenue assurance".Narus Inc.
