Performance testing has revealed that Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) running on Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, and three Oracle Exadata Database Machine racks, all running Oracle Linux, achieved processing speeds of 926 million event detail records (EDRs) per hour, almost doubling the participating service providers expected performance requirements and far exceeding LTE processing requirements of the largest service providers. Testing involved real-life complex pricing scenarios from a leading U.S. service provider and measured such items as number of subscribers and pricing plans (one million and 5,000, respectively); account convergence with 70 percent consumers, 15 percent enterprise and 15 percent retail; and concurrent customer service representative activities that mimicked real-life operations. Extrapolated results demonstrate that, " ... if all seven billion people on earth made any combination of phone calls, texts or content downloads, Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management running on Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud could process them all in a single day," according to Oracle's press release.
