Callis Technologies S.A., an Argentine company founded in 2008, specializes in developing products for advanced internet services providers (ISP’s), providing solutions that prevent network congestion and manage WiFi networks and network analytics, among other services. Callis’ solutions enable its clients to generate new business models, improve client experiences, and optimize network operation expenditures. The company works with the most important operators in Argentina, Mexico, Chile, and Paraguay, with active projects in various Latin American countries, while the company is simultaneously expanding into new regions.
One of Callis’ leading products is Callis Service Manager, a platform that enables ISP’s and other carriers to offer personalized services to their clients, avoid network congestion, manage redirections to portals, and provide detailed information on user behaviors. Callis Service Manager also enables service providers to bring individualized service offerings to market more quickly.
Since releasing the first version of Callis Service Manager in 2008—which ran on an in-house-developed, Linux platform—Callis has used open source systems. In 2012, when launching the latest version of Callis Service Manager for a client, Callis recognized the need to replace its legacy platform with a secure database for better memory scalability, which could be distributed across multiple nodes.
“We chose MySQL Cluster Carrier Grade Edition for its technical advantages, such as the database’s linear scalability,” said Ernesto Luppino, chief executive officer, Callis. “Oracle inspired trust as a partner, and we appreciated the reasonable pricing received for the MySQL Cluster Carrier Grade Edition database that we embedded in our Callis Service Manager product.”
Callis Technologies implemented MySQL Cluster Carrier Grade Edition in Callis Service Manager in early 2012. The company’s developers, in collaboration with Oracle’s MySQL experts, carried out the implementation. It took about six months and was accomplished within budget.
“We embedded the MySQL Cluster Carrier Grade Edition database into the new version of our Callis Service Manager device, ensuring 99.999% availability and high scalability, at a cost very appropriate for an open source tool. Now, we can provide better service to our customers,” said Luppino.
