MySQL AB, the developer of the MySQL open source database, has been selected by Alcatel as a technology partner for development of Alcatel's future carrier-grade multimedia communication products. Under the agreement, Alcatel will use the high-availability MySQL Cluster database in its Multi-access Data Server (MDS) platform, to be used as part of several Alcatel network products, including the Home Location Register (HLR), IP Multimedia Home Subscriber Server (IM-HSS) and Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) systems.
MySQL Cluster is a special high-end version of the MySQL database specifically designed for fault-tolerant, mission-critical applications that need scalability and high-availability, as are common in the communications industry.
"As one of the global leaders in the telecommunications industry, Alcatel is pioneering user-centric broadband networks," said Marten Mickos, CEO of MySQL AB. "We are proud that Alcatel has selected MySQL Cluster as the database in one of the most mission-critical components in these networks."
MySQL and Alcatel have been working together for more than a year, with the first field trials deployed this past summer. Alcatel is employing MySQL Cluster as the repository for key subscriber information, which has to be available in real time whenever a phone call is made or any network service is accessed.
