Achieving Data Consistency With DataStax Enterprise

Bouygues Telecom, a French mobile phone, Internet service provider, and Internet Protocol and television (IPTV) company, was struggling with data quality and data availability for its provisioning system, which keeps its networks running.

To avoid using obsolete data and experiencing service outages, Bouygues Telecom needed to rethink the use of its relational database and find something far more powerful and flexible.

“The DataStax solution offers the ability to query the database in a number of ways, which can detect an inconsistency and thereby correct it. In addition, the solution is easily scalable in case of larger data volumes even if the scope is today only a few. In the long run, we should be able to handle 1.5 billion transactions per day.”

The Opportunity

Bouygues Telecom’s 4G network covers 97% of the French population and gives the company’s 18.3 million customers easy enjoyment of its digital services, which range from mobile to ISP to IPTV.

Bouygues Telecom was struggling with its relational database, which was having trouble keeping its provisioning system’s data consistent and valid, leading to the possibility of outages and of course lost customers.

Bouygues Telecom needed a distributed and scalable database solution that would allows it networks to stay always on and also keep its data clean and consistent.
