Developments in network and switching technologies have made telecommu- cations systems and services far more data intensive. This can be observed in many telecommunications areas, such as network management, service mana- ment, and service provisioning. For example, in the area of network management the complexity of modern networks leads to large amounts of data on network topology, con?guration, equipment settings, etc. In addition, switches generate large amounts of data on network tra?c, faults, etc. In the area of service ma- gement it is the registration of customers, customer contacts, service usage (e.g. call detail records (CDRs)) that leads to large databases. For mobile services there is the additional tracking and tracing of mobile equipment. In the area of service provisioning there are the enhanced services like for example UMTS, the next generation of mobile networks, but also the deployment of data intensive services on broadband networks such as video-on-demand, high quality video conferencing, and e-commerce infrastructures. This results in very large databases growing at high rates especially in new service areas. The integration of network control, network management, and network administration also leads to a situation where database technology gets into the core of the network (e.g. in architectures like TMN, IN, and TINA).

Just like the previous workshop at VLDB 1999 in Edinburgh, the purpose of this workshop is to promote telecom data management as one of the core research areas in database research and to establish a strong connection between the telecom and database research communities. As I wrote in the preface of those proceedings, data management in telecommuni- tions is an interesting area of research given the fact that both service management and service provisioning are very data intensive, and pose extreme requirements on data management technology. Given the feedback on the previous workshop we decided to keep the same program set-up for this workshop: an invited speaker, a collection of research papers, and a panel discussion. We received 18 good quality papers from which we selected 12 to construct a very interesting program. The program has been divided into four sections. The first section focuses on CDR data warehouse and data mining technology. Data warehousing and data mining around customer usage data remains an important area of interest for telecommunication operators. The growing competition, especially in the mobile market, means that operators have to put more effort into customer retention and satisfaction. The second section focuses on performance issues around databases in telecommunication. Since telecommunication databases are characterized by their extreme requirements, for example in terms of volumes of data to be processed or response times, high volume data management and embedded and real-time data management are key aspects of the telecommunication data management problems in today’s operational environments.

Thoroughly covers the integration of cloud computing to existing mobile networks As mobile internet becomes more important, new business models such as Machine to Machine (M2M) gain focus and users make more intensive usage of the network, the pressures on telecoms networks are increasing. To manage these challenges, it has been proposed that some network elements be run in the cloud or in a cloud-like computing environment. This approach makes use of the IT industry’s knowledge of data management though cloud computing. Uniquely examining how cloud technologies are implemented into existing and future GSM entities, this book addresses the evolution of the Home Location Register (HLR) and which data management technologies can help and influence the HLR in its evolution. It focuses on the possible convergence between the evolution of technologies developed by cloud technology providers and the cost-effective management of user data in Telecom networks. The architectural changes and paradigm shift expected in these databases, when moving infrastructure to cloud based environments, are thoroughly covered. Furthermore, the author takes a concrete look at the current HLR and HLS databases from up-to-date infrastructures and maps this functionality in more IT-oriented cloud technologies. Includes formulas, real-world examples of cases where the technology has been successfully implemented, prototypes and results of research studies Covers an innovative technology which will have increased importance as data traffic grows Presents the state of the art from both research and business perspectives Addresses concerns of availability, data lock-in and privacy and the necessary evolution of a cost-effective management of user data Until now there have been few documented real-world experiences of moving the whole subscriber database to this type of noSQL database. Hands-on information about the challenges encountered and the way to solve them is invaluable for teams considering this migration. Telecommunications network architects, Researchers, Decision makers in telecommunications industry, Core Networks Architects, Data management specialists The approach taken is also very beneficial for Graduate students on telecommunications courses, Telco networks administrators, Databases architects, Telecommunication engineering and computer science teachers.
