DataSurge: When Performance Matters


Ericsson Telecom were implementing the world s first voice phone system over IP in Madrid, Spain.

However, they had a problem with the billing subsystem: It was only processing 10 telephone call transactions per second and Ericsson had to increase this to over 60.

Knowing they needed specialist expertise, the team in Sweden wanted a consultancy with track-record in boosting performance and scalability. The natural choice was DataSurge:

After analysing the bottlenecks, we lead a total redesign of data access resulting in performance gains such that sufficient load could not be generated to cause further bottlenecks!

To date, this system has passed stress tests of around 150 transactions per second, easily beating the client's initial requirement.
