WAKEFIELD, Mass., Jan. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comverse® Data Management and Monetization (DMM) Policy Manager emerged from independent testing with industry-leading performance statistics, underscoring its ability to scale to support the mushrooming data volumes that carriers face, reported Comverse, Inc. (Nasdaq:CNSI), the global leader in business enablement through BSS, mobile Internet, value-added and managed services.
Conducted by the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC), internationally renowned for objectivity, neutrality and accuracy, the testing examined Comverse DMM Policy Manager performance and scalability over a variety of 3GPP standard interfaces.
Test results indicate that the DMM Policy Manager is distinguished by having the highest independently proven transactions per second (TPS) figures in the industry per single chassis:
- Verified 31.5 million simultaneously active subscribers in a single DMM Policy Manager chassis
- Measured more than 200,000 transactions per second in a single DMM Policy Manager chassis in all scenarios, including advanced LTE use case
- Support of 15,000 TPS per blade with linear scalability
- Interface Diversity: Supporting Gx, Rx, and the newly released 3GPP Release 11 Sy for OCS-PCRF integration
Exceptional Performance Supports Foreseeable Requirements, LTE, M2M
"In light of the exponential increases in data usage, the move to tiered data plans for smart monetization and the growing number of Long-Term Evolution (LTE) deployments, a highly scalable and interoperable Policy Charging and Rules (PCRF) function is critical," said Carsten Rossenhoevel, Managing Director at EANTC. "Our test results confirm that the Comverse DMM Policy Manager's performance values exceed current and upcoming requirements of mobile service providers. The DMM Policy Manager has demonstrated impressive scalability to grow alongside any successful network, making it suitable to support advanced LTE and machine-to-machine (M2M) scenarios."
"These independent test results validate the exceptional performance of our PCRF solution," said Gabriel Matsliach, SVP, Chief Marketing & Product Officer at Comverse. "The value of the solution is attested to by the industry awards we win for effective data monetization made possible by tight integration of policy and BSS elements plus our marketing-oriented policy creation approach."
"The most important criterion of success for us, however," concluded Matsliach, "is the satisfaction of the many Comverse Mobile Internet customers around the world. The quality, functionality and scalability of our comprehensive portfolio of solutions enable these service providers to thrive in their markets – minimizing TCO, speeding creative revenue-generating plans to market, and monetizing new connected possibilities."
