Servers Provide Quick Payback: Ericsson Multi Mediation*
Refreshing Servers for the Ericsson Multi Mediation* Provides Quick Payback
Power-efficient computing reduces operating expense (OpEx) and environmental impact.
With mobile data traffic forecasted to double every year through 2014, service providers are upgrading their infrastructure to increase capacity and capabilities—at the right price. A key question is how to upgrade server farms: add more servers to an existing system, or start over and deploy the latest computing technologies? In fact, the latter approach—refreshing the entire system—provides a quick payback in many cases. Demonstrating this point, this paper details the cost savings resulting from migrating the Ericsson Multi Mediation* to a platform based on power-efficient Intel® Xeon® processors. Additionally, deploying the latest servers is environmentally friendly because it reduces energy consumption and carbon footprint.
Ericsson is developing Multi Mediation to help operators manage the explosive growth in subscriber demand for content, data and voice services. Multi Mediation is a convergent product offering that handles file, event, and session mediation interfaces. It provides business and operations processing systems with one stable, flexible, and uniform integration point for online and off-line data collection—even when the network consists of several different technologies and equipment from various vendors. From a central point, located between connectivity networks and business support systems, the solution can improve operators’ marketing capabilities, cost efficiency, and financial risk management.
Multi Mediation enables fast and flexible introduction of real-time control of new multimedia and connectivity services in complex business and operations environments. Ericsson Multi Mediation achieves this while simplifying the operator network solutions, leading to capital expenditure (CapEx) and OpEx savings. Additional cost reductions are possible through an efficient graphical user interface structure and centralized management of users, operations and maintenance. Multi Mediation runs on the high performance, yet power-efficient, Sun Blade X6270 M2* server modules equipped with powerful Intel® Xeon® processors.
