LONDON -- Intec Telecom Systems and IBM have completed a performance benchmark of Intec Convergent Billing v6, the latest version of its market leading customer care and billing system, on IBM System p5 servers, demonstrating the capability to handle a sustained throughput equivalent to the needs of a customer base of 60 million pre-paid subscribers. The benchmark was based on a current customer implementation and reflected realistic operating conditions and data. Intec Convergent Billing v6 is designed to offer scalable, leading-edge performance for any combination of payment method and communications technology, including pre and post-paid, fixed, wireless, and next-generation services, for operators and service providers of all types and sizes.
"While some benchmarks are synthesized to show a product at its theoretical best, we've used a real-world configuration based on the production environment in one of our major customers," said Gary Bunney, Intec's COO. "Showing that Intec Convergent Billing can support 60 million pre-paid subscribers on IBM servers is an outstanding result. This benchmark provides further confidence to our tier 1 telecom customers of the market leading performance of our convergent charging and billing platform."
The benchmark was conducted in September 2006 at IBM's performance laboratory in Montpellier, France on two IBM System p5 595 servers, each with 64 1.9GHz processors in a clustered configuration with a shared database. The benchmark demonstrated high performance and linear scalability across a range of real-time convergent rating, balance management, on-line transaction processing, charging and billing tasks from a typical large carrier environment.
"The benchmark has shown once again that IBM System p5 servers are an excellent choice for large telecommunications service providers," said Fabrice Moyen, IBM System p Benchmarks Manager at Montpellier. "We have demonstrated that Intec Convergent Billing v6 on IBM System p5 servers is able to manage the demanding workloads and deliver the necessary real-time performance of a modern, converged service provider."
