MACH Unveils Telco Data Retention Offer

LUXEMBOURG -- MACH, the leading provider of cloud-based managed communication services, today announced TerraXDR – a complete data retention solution enabling network operators to reduce the cost and complexity of achieving compliance with Data Retention legislation. Based on a highly streamlined database solution specifically created for the rapid storage and retrieval of Call Data Records (CDR), TerraXDR can lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) for data retention by as much as 80 per cent, when compared with commonly-used relational databases or data warehousing solutions.

EU operators face a significant challenge finding cost effective ways of retaining ever growing amounts of data for compliance purposes. The EU Data Retention Directive 2006/24/EC requires operators to store data relating to a wide range of subscriber activity for up to two years. Typically operators have used general-purpose, relational databases for this purpose, paying for unneccessary features and having to make do with architectures not specifically suited to their unique requirements. While TerraXDR was developed specifically for EU operators, the system is suitable for use in any market where data retention plays a role in regulatory compliance.

Rasmus Holst, Senior Vice President, Markets, MACH, commented: “The data retention needs of operators are very specific – they require a high-performance solution that can scale to store millions and even billions of records and provide rapid retrieval if the need arises. The TerraXDR solution is the first product specifically designed from the ground-up for storing and retrieving CDRs, and delivers a more cost-effective and fit-for-purpose platform for operators by minimising hardware requirements and providing exceptional performance.”
