Intec Singl.eView Convergent Billing Sets Performance Benchmark on HP Integrity Server

 

  • Latest Singl.eView release rates and bills 250 million events in 6 hours; demonstrates low hardware requirements for billing 10 million wireless subscribers
  • Singl.eView v6 already live on Itanium 2-based HP Integrity servers at major European operator

September 8, 2005, Atlanta-  Intec Telecom Systems has benchmarked Singl.eViewTM v6, the latest version of its market-leading customer care and billing system, on a single instance of a mid-range HP Integrity server to demonstrate the performance of its highly-efficient architecture.

In a six hour test using an Intel(r) Itanium(r) 2-based HP Integrity Superdome server with 32 CPUs running on the HP-UX 11i operating environment, the benchmark configuration simulated traffic from a wireless telecommunications service provider with 10 million subscribers. In the benchmark, Singl.eView generated 2.5 million customer invoices from 250 million events in a 6 hour bill run. Notably, the test included all billing processes, from receiving and rating events to generating invoice images.

"Supporting the full range of billing processes for ten million wireless subscribers on a single server is an outstanding result, and underscores the architectural efficiency of Singl.eView v6's design," said Intec COO of Product Operations and Services Gary Bunney.

A multi-country implementation of Singl.eView v6 running on HP Itanium 2 Integrity servers has been in live production since May 2005. This implementation, at one of Europe's fastest-growing carriers, is expected to support over 23 million subscribers within the next 18 months.

"Singl.eView on HP Integrity servers running HP-UX 11i is a very cost-effective solution for large network service providers," said Don Jenkins, vice president of marketing, Business Critical Servers at HP.

"These results demonstrate once again the ability of HP Integrity servers to manage the most demanding workloads and Singl.eView's low hardware footprint and excellent cost of ownership attributes."

Intec CEO Kevin Adams added, "We are pleased to be able to offer HP Integrity servers as a high performance and low cost alternative for our retail billing and customer care system. These benchmark results provide further confidence to our tier 1 telecom customers of the performance and low TCO of Singl.eView."

Singl.eView, Intec's market-leading billing and customer management system, is relied upon by many of the largest and most innovative telecommunications service providers worldwide. Its inherent performance and total cost of ownership (TCO) advantages allow service providers to lower their cost of billing by supporting all billing on one platform, across pre-paid, post-paid and all classes of customer and product.
