IMSS has been engaged with the client team for maintenance of SMS Firewall which is one of the core applications of the client.
The main challenge of the client’s reporting team was to finish large call data record (CDR) data log processing within stipulated times.
Approximately 90 million records of CDR logs needed to be processed within 15 minutes and generate reports from that CDR data. The reporting system is expected to be very fast and robust so that it should process CDR logs every 15 minutes without piling of CDR records.
