OpenAPI_ESB is designed to be deployed in large-sized network infrastructures (e.g. at the national level) to provide integration between front-end subscriber service systems and the billing core of a communications network, payment processing servers and address servers; in addition, it enables interoperability between OCS (a real-time charging system) and PCRF (policy and charging management) using OpenLDAP. The solution is intended for major communications service providers; it is continuously updated to keep pace with the latest technology it uses (Talend, Apache).
Prerequisites and Characteristics
An enterprise-level business-critical system for a communications service provider is expected to meet the following non-functionality requirements:
To ensure that each of the above requirements is fully met and to provide a greater level of flexibility in complex solution deployments, Peter-Service has developed a range of integration components to use them in its latest BSS solution architecture, with most interactions between solution components being mediated by OpenAPI_ESB, an enterprise service bus.
Peter-Service synchronizes the source code of OpenAPI_ESB with latest updates to the code of the source systems, such as Talend ESB Standard Edition and RabbitMQ, on a regular basis. A synchronization can be made on demand, when a customer asks for it, or at the initiative of Peter-Service when some new important functionality is added to the source systems.
Flexible configuration options; the ability to select only those functional components that are relevant for a given deployment project
Horizontal scalability; no limits on the number of subscribers being served
The negative impact of a failed node is limited to certain services and subscribers, not extending to the entire subscriber base and every service available
Subscribers can see the cost of any transaction immediately after it is finished
A graphical interface for system configuration tasks
The solution includes only up-to-date open source components that are being actively developed
