VoltDB has 5G ambitions

On August 16, VoltDB, a US-based enterprise database framework announced new platform updates to support fast data strategies as telecoms and other industry verticals prepare for 5G transition.

With the immense increase in throughput and data volume that 5G is promising, the need for real-time data analytics is essential for organizations to capitalize on 5G networks when it comes to the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), networking slicing and more. VoltDB is the only existing technology that can support the scale and speed 5G promises, surpassing current NoSQL technologies such as Redis.
In addition to providing lower latencies and supporting higher throughput with 5G, telcos will also have to manage an unprecedented increase in data traffic from smartphones and signaling from notifications and connected devices. With 5G speeds expected to be 1,000 to a reported unlimited times faster than 4G LTE and the need to connect more than 50 billion devices, the industry will see more data than ever before. Telcos that want to win the 5G race will need to move from just network coverage to real-time subscriber interaction. In order to deliver the Quality of Service (QoS) and responsive network management customers expect, they will need a real-time decisioning engine that can analyze call, usage and billing data, monitor policy, and maximize the value of 5G applications.
VoltDB’s proven low-latency support for complex real-time decisions empowers providers with the following benefits:
+Unparalleled high performance with sub millisecond response times: A distributed scale-out architecture enables fast analytics at the edge to meet anticipated QoS metrics dictated by 5G data speeds.
+More accurate business decisions, every time: Guaranteed ACID compliance ensures the most consistent and accurate data for critical decision making.
+Reduced total cost of ownership (TCO): Dynamic service delivery leading to high agility and reduced TCO. VoltDB is cloud native, so real-time applications can run smoothly in the cloud.
