open-cgf provides a 3GPP-compliant charging gateway function (CGF) as a sink for SGSN, GGSN, and other streamed CDRs on the 3GPP Ga/Gz interface using GTP' (GTP prime). Refer to 3GPP 32.295. These are common packet-switched data elements of GSM/UMTS mobile telephone networks. It aims to supply a telco-grade solution to this common, albeit very specialized, need. It does not decode the ASN.1 CDRs, but simply and reliably writes them to disk for later processing.
The 3Gdb Home Subscriber Server implements the HSS network element within an IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) core network (CN). An IMS CN is a collection of SIP proxies, registrars, and servers used for the provision of services in a 3GPP all-IP mobile network. The HSS provides a centralized data base for subscriber records and generates authentication vectors.
RabbitMQ is an implementation of AMQP, the emerging standard for high performance enterprise messaging. The RabbitMQ server is based on a proven platform, Erlang/OTP, offering exceptionally high reliability, availability, and scalability. It delivers good throughput and latency performance that is predictable and consistent. The code base is compact and easily maintainable, facilitating rapid customization and hot deployment. The RabbitMQ distribution also includes a Java client that interoperates with any compliant AMQP server.
Serlvers is a set of Erlang modules designed to help in the implementation of IP services (i.e. TCP/IP or Internet servers). Serlvers consists of a set of behaviours to abstract the internals of each protocol, and other modules to help with the infrastructure. The goal is that when making a server, you only need worry about how to store, handle, process, etc. the information instead of the internals of each protocol (to save countless hours of RFC reading).
ejabberd is a multi-platform, scalable, distributed, and fault-tolerant Jabber/XMPP server. It includes Jabber services like Multi-User Chat, IRC transport, HTTP-Bind, Publish-Subscribe and PEP. It supports virtual hosting, connection to transports (gateways) to other networks, and connection to other Jabber servers. Other supported features are Web and command-line administration, encryption support (SSL and TLS), several authentication methods (embedded, external script, LDAP, PAM, and ODBC), varied storage methods (embedded, ODBC, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MSSQL), Jabber user directory, and translations in more than 20 languages.
REPOS stands for Repository of Erlang-Projects.Org Software selection. It is a collection of major ready-to-use Erlang software. Erlang REPOS is distributed as a CDROM image (ISO). You can use every program included in the REPOS environment either directly from the CDROM, from your hard drive, or from a USB key.
Tsung (formerly known as IDX-Tsunami) is a distributed load testing tool. It is protocol-independent and can currently be used to stress HTTP, WebDAV, PostgreSQL, MySQL, LDAP, and XMPP/Jabber servers. It simulates user behavior using an XML description file, reports many measurements in real time (statistics can be customized with transactions, and graphics generated using gnuplot). For HTTP, it supports 1.0 and 1.1, has a proxy mode to record sessions, supports GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE methods, Cookies, and Basic WWW-authentication. It also has support for SSL.
