VoltDB today announced that VoltDB displaced MySQL as the enabling technology and deployed the NewSQL database in Novatel Networks’ data center.
MySQL will be the enabling technology for Novatel’s carrier-grade VoIP call routing, delivering the high-velocity data ingestion, transactional capabilities and scale required to make routing decisions in real time based on very complex incoming data.
“Our system was initially architected with MySQL, which presented a major operational burden and offered limited scale,” said Ari Gorman, CTO, Novatel Networks.
“VoltDB is a fault tolerant database that enables us to manage extreme velocity data streams and call volumes. We are getting incredible performance with VoltDB that isn’t possible with more traditional systems. As a result, we are able to deliver a remarkably competitive on premise and Cloud-based, high-capacity SIP solution,” Gorman added.
VoltDB is queried to return least-cost SIP call routing results based on the number dialed after going through a procedure to determine the least cost route. This machine-to-machine activity results in millions of transactions and allows Novatel to pick the lowest cost carrier and route calls tens of thousands of times per second.
