Nokia and MySQL collaborate on next generation telecommunication subscriber registers


February 14, 2006, Espoo, Finland - Nokia, the world leader in mobile communications, and MySQL AB, the leading global supplier of database technology, today announced an agreement under which Nokia plans to use MySQL® Cluster database technology 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 MySQL’s database 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, IMS, 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 join forces with MySQL 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.”

“We are extremely proud to have our technology selected to be part of such an essential telecom solution by a world leading provider,” said Marten Mickos, CEO of MySQL AB. “It is a testament to our long-standing focus of delivering mission-critical levels of high availability, reliability and performance with a very compelling total cost of ownership.”
