Simplicity, speed and relevance are absolutely essential for any organization striving to succeed in today’s business environment. These three factors apply to the offerings that providers bring to market, and more importantly, they apply to the critical BSS infrastructure that provides the foundation for their organizations.
Recognizing these needs Oracle Communications is pleased to announce the release of Oracle Communications Revenue Management Suite Reference Implementation Version 2.0 (RMS RI).
KEY CAPABILITIES AND BENEFITS
Two key business objectives were the driving forces for this suite release:
• Fast and Effective Installation, and Base Configuration
The Oracle Communications Revenue Management Suite Reference Implementation (RMS RI) is an automated deployment process of the Revenue Management Suite (RMS) product set. Leveraging this suite reduces the complexity and challenges associated with a distributed architecture setup, the specialized product knowledge required for installations, the time and effort involved for the setup.
RMS RI does so by rapidly installing and integrating the various products in the RMS product set and their enabling technologies – each using a non-interactive installation process. Global configuration files remove the need for any manual pre- or post-installation configuration to integrate the installed product within the environment. Not only does this reduce the time required to carry out the installation, it eliminates the manual configuration steps that are one of the main reasons for installation failures.
• Automated Validation and Easier Deployments
RMS RI provides a scenario deployment tool which allows test cases to be deployed across the end-to-end solution stack. These test cases are written using a Behavior-Driven Development natural language format, allowing their easy creation from defined business use cases. The ability to create use-case specific configuration enables not only specific validations, but shorter time-to-setup demo, proof-of-concept, development, training or production environments.
Specific features and benefits for RMS RI Version 2.0 include:
Improved Charging Scalability
• Support for a multi-node configuration of the OCS
• Option to install the required schemas for the RMS products in a pre-existing database installation in addition to being able install a new local database instance
Improved RMS Product Installations
• Use of the improved security features introduced in the IP2 product releases to install RMS products so that they possess a greater level of security by default
• Installation framework replaced with the Chef open-source configuration management tool
