Kabira Technologies, a company involved in high performance transaction processing software for global enterprises, has announced that the UK mobile service provider, Hutchison 3G UK has integrated its messaging infrastructure using the Kabira Transaction Platform (KTPTM) software.
Kabira’s scalable transaction software platform will enable 3 UK to manage increasing demand for its messaging services including MMS, SMS and email for UK customers.
With growth in demand for its messaging services in the UK, 3 UK identified the need for a new network application integration (NAI) technology that could act at the core of its service layer and be capable of handling all messaging events. 3 UK decided to implement a new services layer between its messaging networks, billing system and customer profile server. This NAI services layer helps 3 UK handle rapid growth in messaging traffic volumes, provides flexibility to launch new messaging services faster and works to more effectively control costs.
The Kabira Transaction Platform services layer can process over 4,000 transactions a second, and enables 3 UK to process messaging transactions simultaneously while at the same time performing real time charging for each messaging transaction. By deploying Kabira technology, 3 UK provides second service control capability in its network.
3 UK chief technology officer, Graham Baxter, stated: “The NAI program we run with Kabira is delivering on the strategic objective of providing a real time transaction processing engine within our services layer to complement our existing technologies. The Kabira KTP platform provides a flexible development environment coupled with a high performance execution engine running on commodity hardware, all helping to keep our costs down and deliver to our business needs.”
