Directory Server

The Directory Server (DS) is a high-performance LDAP-driven database system that enables the shift to a subscriber-centered data model. Carriers and enterprises benefit from a consolidated profile store to drive next-generation services and increase personalization across applications.

The DS uses a flexible data model with data integrity and enables spontaneous changes to schemas for new application information. A key component of the Alcatel-Lucent Subscriber Data Management Solution, the DS features high-performance throughput in a small footprint and is scalable for very large networks. Data redundancy eliminates single points of failure within and across data centers.

Included with the DS is an open-source SDK that speeds the development and integration of third-party applications. A full complement of professional services such as integration, consulting, schema development and staff augmentation is also available.
