Performance Analysis

Doriath Technology engineers have been providing project implementation and SI projects to one of the biggest Network Operators in Europe in the last ten years. In today's fast growing Telecommunication market, performance is everything. You usually need big machines to crunch complex tariff models, promotions and invoices in a timely manner.
