Oracle Launches New Initiative For Service Providers

by CXOtoday Staff    Jan 25, 2005

Oracle India, today announced the launch of Carrier Grade Framework (CGF), a new initiative targeted at Communications Service Providers (CSPs) and Network Equipment Manufacturers (NEMs).

The initiative is expected to leverage standards-based technology in order to meet customer demands and improve time to market for new services including high-speed broadband content and 3G mobile applications.

“The communications industry uses a lot of technology. The framework will allow telcos to deploy newer applications for upcoming technologies with a lot of ease,” commented Sathya Prasad Rai, director - sales, Oracle India.

Oracle CGF, built on Oracle Database 10g, will allow CSPs and NEMs to replace expensive proprietary communications technology platforms with commercial software. This offering will drive standards-based modularization of the communication technology platform, separating applications from the database to run on a shared computing architecture.

Additionally, by replacing proprietary data stores with a commercial architecture, CSPs will be able to lower their total cost of ownership. Since it is built on open standards, it is expected to enhance efficiency throughout the entire communications value chain.
