Note:

Based on GSM Technology Pack RI. 1 Service invokes 5 Web Service Operations against UIM.

Production configurations use 64-bit JVM only.

DB Storage is listed without retention calculations. Storage requirements will increase with number of subscriber population and retention period requirements.

Information Requirements

During UIM installation, you are required to enter configuration values such as host names and port numbers. You define some of these configuration values when you install and configure the Oracle database and WebLogic Server.

If you have already installed Oracle Communications products, the installer reads the values from the existing Oracle Communications products and uses them as default values. If no Oracle Communications products are installed, the installer uses the default values shown in the following tables.

Each chapter contains tables for the configuration values.
