1.       This Document

This document describes the Electronic Prepaid Load Distribution System in technical detail. These descriptions also include the technical specifications of the various components of this system.

2.       Scope

This document describes the Electronic Prepaid Load Distribution System and required interfaces only. Business processes are not covered.

3.       Definition of Terms

  • Host
  • - CelluServ's transaction processing servers.

  • Agent - A retailer of Prepaid Load that is mobile and can transact from any location utilizing a mobile phone applet.
  • Applet - A software program that is loaded on mobile phones for the purpose of selling Prepaid Load.
  • 1


    4.       Overview

            Components

    5.       Network Systems Architecture

    a.   Network Diagram

    The core servers will be located within CelluServ's facility. Two sub networks should be provided by CelluServ, one for production and one for staging and development. The development server is where all enhancements will be installed and tested before deploying to production.

    CelluServ's facility will be connected to the MNO's via Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). This connection will carry Prepaid Load requests, as well as CelluServ requests and messages.

    It will also be connected to the settlement bank via a VPN. This connection will carry settlement request traffic. The same VPN can also be used by the bank for MBS-based Prepaid Load purchases.

    A web hosting provider, which houses the CelluServ Customer web portal, will connect to the core servers via HTTPS.

    POS terminals will connect to the core servers via GPRS. This connection allows the terminal to log in, and request Prepaid Load from the server.

    b.   Logical Communications Flow Diagram

    i.   Retailer/Agent Purchase

    3


    Communicates when a retailer or agent initiates a request from their device.

    For terminals, the request goes through GPRS, which passes through their MNO. The MNO forwards the request to CelluServ's server. The communication going through the MNO is transparent to the user, and will appear as a direct Internet connection.

    When CelluServ receives the request, it performs validation on the request. If the transaction is validated, it will then proceed to send settlement instructions to the bank.

    The bank sends a response back to CelluServ, which in turn returns the transaction result back to the retailer/agent.

    ii.   MBS Purchase

    For MBS-based purchases, the bank client initiates the transaction. MBS sends the request to CelluServ. From this point, the communication flow is the same as described in section i.

    iii.   Web Portal Purchase

    Web Portal purchases are initiated by a customer requesting to purchase Prepaid Load. The customer selects the desired product and the request is sent to CelluServ's server to check for product availability. If available, the customer then proceeds to pay via a payment gateway. Upon confirmation of the payment gateway, the portal requests the transaction to CelluServ's core server. From this point, the communication flow is the same as described in section i.

    6.       Server Hardware requirements

    Production servers

    Processor
    Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor E5530 (2.40GHz, 8M Cache,1066MHz)

    Memory
    8GB PC3-10600R 4 x 2GB 2Rank Memory

    4


    Operating System

    RedHat Enterprise Linux 5

    Storage
    SATA Controller, 2 x 450GB Non-Hot Plug 3.5 SAS 15,000rpm Dual Port Hard Drive, RAID Controller, 16X Half-Height SATA DVD-ROM Optical Drive, PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

    Hardware requirements vary, depending on the expected transaction rate. However, the minimum requirements are that there should be at least two, to provide fail over and high availability.

    Development server

    Processor
    Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor E5502 (1.865GHz, 4M Cache, 800MHz)

    Memory
    4GB PC3-10600E 4x1GB 1Rank Memory

    Operating System
    RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 or CentOS 5

    Storage
    SATA Controller, 2x 750GB 3G SATA 7200rpm

    RAID Controller, 16X Half-Height SATA DVD-ROM Optical Drive, PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

    Development server specs are less stringent; however it should be powerful enough that a stress test on that server will be able to estimate the production hardware's transaction rate.
