Primal Technologies has tapped its extensive industry experience in both the Telecom Engineering and Information Technology domains to develop this new-concept service vehicle. Modular hardware and software enable the development and deployment of customized telecom services in months, not years, without compromising the reliability requirements of the telecom industry community. The result is that service providers have the ability to offer and evolve innovate services in their market at a competitive price.
The hardware chassis for the Primal Open Services Platform is offered in the entire range of Sun Microsystem systems allowing the ideal price to performance fit for almost any network. Primal's selection criteria are based on: interconnect type, number of ports, CPU usage and disk storage.
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 OSP LX hardware is based upon commercially off-the-shelf, industry leading hardware available from a broad supply of hardware vendors. The selection requirements are based on: interconnect type, number of ports and disk storage. For details on the hardware specifications refer to the Documentation Center.
Primal Technologies' modular architecture flexibly meets any operator's specific network signalling, trunking and IT architecture requirements. The OSP can be deployed as an in-network solution (or a cloud-based solution) allowing the service operator's Marketing, Engineering/IT, and Customer Service staff to access the system (based on security access privileges) as required.

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 Applications. With this three-component strategy Primal or 3rd
Party Developers can customize OSP applications quickly and effectively.
- OSP Open System Software base layers
Consistent with the OSP's open concept is the base
operating system layer using industry standard offerings. Sun Solaris has
become the dominant operating system in the telecom arena and is used as
the OSP's OS. The OSP also supports industry standard SQL databases such as
Informix and Oracle. This allows the use of easy and familiar methods for
the retrieval of information from the OSP. Apache provides OSP connectivity
to corporate Intranets or the Internet. Using this access method allows
profile and OSP system changes to be made via the Internet or Intranet.
- OSP Middleware
Primal Technologies has developed the OSP Middleware,
shared by all OSP applications. 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 application 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
- Databases (e.g., user profiles, user data, system data)
- Telecom Protocols (e.g., SS7, ISUP, IS-41, TCAP, SMPP)
- Networking Protocols (e.g. TCP/IP, SMPP, etc.)
- 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
OSP applications include: Wireless Prepaid, Visual Voice Mail, Policy and Charging Rules Functions, Real-Time Signalling Media Gateway,
Loyalty, Data Services, USSD Services, SMSC, Rich Communication Suite, MMS, OTA, EIR and etc. Click here to see the product brouchures.
For 3rd Party developers the OSP Middleware is the starting
point. With Primal's APIs, developers can use the Primal Open Services Platform to develop
their own applications that can operate in conjunction with or independently from
Primal's existing services.
