Nokia uses it for its Subscriber Data Management Solution.
Nokia Networks has expanded the use of big data technology for its Subscriber Data Management (SDM) solution.
SDM is built on Hadoop and is used for managing and streamline telecommunications.
Nokia Networks ditched databases in favour of WANdisco’s big data technology in 2013 for consolidating subscriber data.
Prior to moving to Hadoop, the data was stored in a number of different databases with little or no sharing of data across applications.
However, now with Nokia Networks SDM built on Hadoop, mobile carriers who use the solution can interact with one real-time application to perform new customer activation.
Nokia is also using WANdisco Fusion, an active-active replication technology for Hadoop to meet the SLAs of its large mobile carrier customers.
WANdisco Fusion’s is flexible and has an easy-to-deploy architecture that eliminates Hadoop platform vendor lock-in.
Nokia Business customer experience management PLM Peter Kerekes said: "Implementing SDM on Hadoop was a big step forward in improving the user experience for our mobile carrier customers, as well as their end customers.
"However, we faced other significant challenges around the extreme levels of availability, performance and guaranteed real-time data consistency across locations that our customers required.
"No other solution we evaluated came close to WANdisco Fusion in meeting our requirements, as well as giving us the flexibility to move to different Hadoop platforms."
