NewNet Nimblevox Messaging VoltDelta

Scalability

NewNet Mobile Messaging solutions are designed to support Mobile Operators and Communication Providers with subscriber bases of all sizes. The issue of scalability goes beyond subscriber counts with examples including surge conditions seen with A2P and M2M SMS applications, and system requirements for delivering multimedia communications especially for video quality.

All aspects of NewNet Mobile Messaging solutions are designed to scale, providing confidence for smaller operators expecting growth in the near future as well as for the largest of carriers with millions of subscribers.

NewNet scalability components delivering a competitive edge include:

  • SOFTWARE – NewNet’s solutions are designed to meet and exceed the challenges of volume and surges.
    • Example: P2A SMS applications such as political campaigns and competitions generate message surges. Lithium efficiently scales for these instances by sending messages directly to the Application. Occasional message peaks are not counted towards licensing, providing additional scalability efficiencies.
  • MANAGEMENT – As a subscriber base grows it might make sense to add SMSCs. In addition to configuration complexity, this can generate problems as multiple SMSC messages destined for a particular subscriber can end up in multiple SMSCs.
    • Example: Lithium uses virtualization techniques that permit abstraction of server instances from physical servers, allowing application instances to scale independently of hardware installations. Transient data is stored in a clustered, high availability database which is further backed by geographic redundancy and usage of Storage Area Network (SAN) infrastructure.
  • VIRTUALIZATION – Separating software from reliance on hardware resources provides deployment flexibility as well as scalability advantages such as faster provisioning, clustering for surges, and distribution of traffic across multiple servers or locations.
    • Example: Krypton uses virtualization techniques that permit abstraction of server instances from physical servers, allowing application instances to scale independently of hardware installations. Transient data is stored in a clustered, high availability database which is further backed by geographic redundancy and usage of Storage Area Network (SAN) infrastructure.
