As we shift from gigabytes to terabytes of storage for reporting marts, the need for open-source big data processing power becomes more apparent.
LONDON (PRWEB) October 23, 2017
Telarix Inc. ("Telarix"), the leading provider of wholesale and partner solutions for service providers, has announced that it has adopted Hadoop to underpin its iXLink and iXTools solution offerings. The shift to Hadoop will provide international carriers and interconnect providers the speed, scalability and big data business intelligence tools required to meet new regulatory demands, enter new markets and address upcoming business connectivity challenges, such as the Internet of Things and 5G networks.
It is estimated that carriers who historically processed one billion CDRs a month, typically aggregated and reported on 100,000s of report records a month, equating to 300 GB of storage. Today, carriers who traditionally process even fewer CDRs are now finding themselves processing 10s of millions more records per month, resulting in multi-terabyte reporting marts. This amount of data, reporting and storage required is expected to grow exponentially as 5G networks become operational.
By moving to an open-source platform based on Hadoop, Spark and other big data technologies, Telarix will enable CSPs to support additional reporting capabilities, reduce final storage and significantly reduce reporting times, while providing CSPs with a lower cost of ownership.
“As we shift from gigabytes to terabytes of storage for reporting marts, the need for open-source big data processing power becomes more apparent. By bringing big-data architecture to our iXLink and iXTools platforms not only empowers carriers to meet the demands of today’s evolving telecom landscape but equips them for IoT and 5G requirements,” says Aravind Venkateswaran, Chief Technology Officer at Telarix.
