Subscriber Data Management
“Unlock the value of subscriber data. See how we can help you consolidate your data into a single, unified platform and speed-up new services introduction.”
With Nokia Networks Subscriber Data Management (SDM) solution, data from many incompatible, proprietary databases is consolidated into a single repository, the Nokia Networks One-NDS. The data is shared between multiple applications like 3GPP HSS (HSS and HLR), AAA, EIR, MNP or 3rd parties, not duplicated for each one. Since there is only one copy of each piece of data, with a common definition, there can be none of the inconsistencies and ambiguities that inevitably arise otherwise.
In the traditional silo approach each new service requires a new application with own database. That database needs to be put into a highly available architecture, integrated with a new interface into the provisioning systems and appropriate maintenance processes need to be set up. With Nokia Networks SDM solution, only a simple extension to the central repository’s data model and the already established provisioning interface is required. As a result, new services can be introduced much faster with Nokia NetworksSDM solution.
There is an even greater gain in speed when activating customers. In the traditional approach, these activation requires a sequence of actions for each separate application. A failure in any one can cause the whole sequence to be reversed, or to be left in an incomplete and inconsistent state. With Nokia NetworksSDM solution, there is just one real-time provisioning interface to be touched to perform activation and verify it immediately. Customers can instantly use their services.
Nokia NetworksSDM solution is designed for telecommunication operators from scratch, comprising extreme high availability and reliability together with fastest speed and performance. Data is shared in real-time between typically 3 sites; each site is always active and always has the latest data. If any site is incapacitated or becomes disconnected from the network, the full load is instantly and automatically carried between the remaining sites.
One subscriber management system and multiple-application support
Nokia NetworksSDM solution is based on open standards and it supports multiple applications from Nokia Networks, third parties, operators and other vendors. It works with any standard industry domain and technology including CS, PS, EPS or LTE. Bringing all subscriber data into a single repository simultaneously ensures a reliable, real-time view of the entire end-user – a customer view rather than an application view – and it significantly reduces the costs of managing the data: for example T-Mobile Germany achieved a 55% reduction in these costs.
Why Nokia Networks?
Nokia Networks is constantly seeking the foresight to see what customers need even before they do, Nokia Networks has the passion to bring those new solutions to life. Even in those areas where Nokia Networks lead, including Subscriber Data Management, we continue to challenge, as we know that great companies never stop evolving.
Nokia Networks has the most complete SDM solution and portfolio of data less applications in the market place with an excess of more than 185 live deployments (including in excess of 104 LTE live deployement), serving more than 3.8 billion subscriber licenses worldwide. The customer base includes leading tier-1 CSPs like Orange, T-Mobile International, Vodafone, Verizon, Sprint, Airtel Bharti, MTS Russia and others.
