Unprecedented Resiliency

Leveraging a microservices-based architecture to ensure high availability under load.

Our resilient, cloud native architecture ensures full availability, harnessing the agility of containers and container orchestration while running efficiently with high physical server utilization.

MATRIXX Converged Charging System

Architected, developed and deployed to scale in response to business needs and network demands

Microservices based, container architecture

scales as needed, harnessing open source tools to optimize resource utilization and automate operational functions

Business logic

executes in parallel streams, harnessing normalization to improve performance with decision tables

Network gateways

may be deployed at the edge and scale independently for event ingestion and load balancing

Stateful data

is managed in all-master clusters to ensure ACID compliance resilience with ultra-low latency performance

MATRIXX Cloud Native Design

Launch quickly, respond rapidly and heal automatically.

Service Mesh

Facilitate service-to-service communication decoupled from application code in a highly dynamic cloud environment.

MATRIXX | Kubernetes Cloud Native Architecture

MATRIXX Cloud Native Deployment Architecture

1. Business API Gateway

Converts simple RESTful API requests from self-care channels and other OSS/BSS systems into a MATRIXX internal messaging format.

2. Charging Function

Provides a HTTP/2 interface to the 5G core network and registration to the Network Repository Function; equivalent network gateways specific to each protocol support non-5G interactions such as DIAMETER, RESTful and SIGTRAN.

3. Inbound Routing

Load balances, routes all requests to the correct processing pod and manages all responses to the initiator.

4. Rating Function

Processes all network and subscription management requests to determine usage, execute the rating business logic, and prepare the responses and balance impacts.

5. Charging Gateway Function

Reliably publishes events to the event repository for long term storage as well as deliver high volume, low latency event streaming.

6. Active MQ

Delivers outbound integration from MATRIXX to external services.

7. Payment Gateway

Connects to various payment providers to enable real-time purchases, scheduled payments and threshold-triggered recharges.

8. Notifications

Generates templated human-readable messages and delivers to end-customers via push notifications, SMS or email.

9. Event Streaming

Kafka adapter provides real-time access to events as they are produced for use by billing, analytics, campaign management, financial reporting and network management functions.

10. Account Balance Management Function

A stateful component that provides a fully available all-mastered database of subscriber / device balances for resilient in-memory storage.

11. Checkpoint

Processes offline transaction files to maintain a near-real-time database to be used for fast restart and periodical creation of checkpoint images for backup.

Cloud Native: How Kubernetes Underpins the Future

Cloud native brings new possibilities, but how is it meeting the expectations of digital leaders? Join MATRIXX’s CTO Marc Price and other industry innovators as they take a deeper dive into what cloud native really means for their businesses and why the future must be cloud-based.
