Accelerating Telecom Business Software with Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory

The AsiaInfo* Comms Telco BSS solution achieves enhanced benchmark performance powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor.

AsiaInfo Technologies is poised to extend its leadership in business support systems (BSSs) by taking advantage of latency reductions enabled by Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory.

Application

AsiaInfo is the largest BSS (Business Support System) provider in PRC, and its Telco BSS is a fundamental application for telecom carriers. The benchmark is developed by AsiaInfo as a proxy to simulate a commonly occurring business analytics scenario. In this scenario, where 9 queries are executed on a mock dataset. Key customers include China Mobile.

Challenges

Complex queries take a long time to execute due to amount of data processing and inability to store large volumes closer to the CPU, due to limited, affordable memory capacity.

Solution

Using Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory (App Direct (Storage over App Direct) mode), improves performance by allowing customers to store more data in memory (reduce spillover to SSDs) and by reducing frequent accesses to disk (see chart for normalized reduction in latency, up to 68%, compared to older generation)123.

Value

Better performance at similar cost - AsiaInfo’s telecom customers will benefit from improved performance (i.e., lower latency/response time when executing queries) at comparable (ISO) cost and process more data in less time.
