Nokia and Oracle collaborate on next generation telecommunication subscriber registers


February 14, 2006, Espoo, Finland - Nokia, the world leader in mobile communications, and Oracle, the world’s largest enterprise software company, today announced an agreement under which Nokia can use Oracle’s Carrier Grade Framework product offering in its next generation telecommunication subscriber register solution. Subscriber registers are essential to maintain real-time information about mobile and converged network users.

Nokia plans to incorporate Oracle’s technologies into Nokia’s next generation telecommunication subscriber register solution. Nokia is today one of the leading suppliers of Home Location Register (HLRs), providing extremely reliable systems and the highest transaction capacities for the subscriber database needs of telecom networks.

Nokia will build on its strong HLR capabilities and enhance its existing register solutions to cover all requirements for real-time subscriber data demanded by existing and new services in both mobile and converged networks.

“Nokia is already the world leader in 3GPP Release 4 mobile softswitches, HLR, and IP multimedia solutions,” said Christian Fredrikson, Vice President, Networks, Nokia. “And developing a single on-line subscriber register solution is the natural next step in the evolution of our register offering. With this cooperation, we and Oracle join forces to establish a winning solution for mobile and converged operators. The solution will provide greater flexibility in creating new subscriber services, enhanced capabilities for subscriber provisioning, and increased savings in operational costs.”

“Collaborating with Nokia on its single on-line subscriber register solution enables us to provide telecom operators and service providers with a cost-effective foundation for bringing exciting new services faster to market,” said Lars Wahlström, Vice President, Telecom & Media, Oracle Europe, Middle East and Africa. “The data management solution of Oracle Carrier Grade Framework is based on Oracle 10g and Oracle TimesTen In-Memory database technologies. It highlights the carrier grade features and options of these Oracle products, ideally suited for today’s Network Element Providers and ISVs developing next generation network solutions for the telecommunications industry.”
