OSP Architecture


OSP Hardware Architecture
Primal's modular architecture allows OSP (Open Services Platform) Services to inter-operate with the many different trunk and signaling interfaces that exist today. These interfaces include: TCAP, ISUP, MF, PRI, and VoIP. The OSP operates within an Intranet or Internet environment allowing the support team and service operator (based on security levels) to access the system for system monitoring.

The OSP's scaleable architecture allows for growth in the number of voice interface cards, the number of CPUs and the amount of storage required. Multiple applications can operate on the same platform, allowing low cost expansion into new services for service providers. The hardware chassis for the OSP is offered in six major models. The selection requirements are based on: transactions, interconnect type, number of ports, and disk storage. For details on the hardware specifications refer to an
Unified Communications combines universal message management with real-time call control. With WWW Access broadband subscribers complete control over their messaging and call control needs.



OSP Software Architecture
The OSP software is modular in design and consists of three main components: the Open System Software (OSS), the OSP Middleware and the OSP Services. With this three-component strategy Primal can customize OSP Services quickly and effectively.

  • OSP Open System Base Software
    Industry standard Unix operating systems such as Solaris and Linux have long been the recognized, trusted operating systems used in the telecom industry. Primal Technologies has traditionally used both OS in our deployments as this is consistent with the OSP's open concept of using an industry standard OS.
    For the past several years, Primal Technologies has been deploying all of our Services on an NFV architecture typically using Linux as the OS. These deployments have been deployed within operators' private IT cloud environments, or alternatively on the public cloud.
    The OSP also supports industry standard SQL databases, with the most common being Oracle allowing the use of easy and familiar methods for the retrieval of information from the OSP. Skylight or any Web Browser provides OSP connectivity to the network, allowing access via the Internet or Intranet.


  • OSP Middleware
    Primal Technologies has developed the OSP Middleware, shared by all OSP Services. This Middleware is what sets the OSP apart from other telecommunications platforms. It is an integrated environment for the rapid development of telecom applications. The actual coding of the OSP Service is more modular and streamlined by using standard OSP Middleware system calls rather than being built from scratch with each new application. The resources available to the applications via the OSP Middleware include:
    • Databases (e.g., user profiles, user data, system data)
    • Telecom Protocols (e.g SS7, ISUP, IS-41, TCAP, CAMEL, WIN, SIP/MGCP)
    • Voice Applications (e.g., recorded announcements, recorded prompts, etc.)
    • Trunking interfaces (i.e., ISUP, T1, E1 and PRI)
    • IP Credit and Debit Card services
    • Billing and Logging
Primal Technologies has tapped its extensive industry experience in both the Telecom Engineering and Computer-IT domains to develop this new-concept service vehicle. Modular hardware and software enables the development and deployment of customized telecom services in months, not years, without compromising the reliability requirements of the telecom community. The result is the ability for service providers to offer innovative services in their market at a competitive pace.
