Nexus Application Engine Platform

Smart software development: carrier grade, tested in production in the last 5 years, handling thousands of messages per second

Model based
Same visual model shared during design and runtime, between all actors (project team members and stakeholders). This is used to improve communication, to generate tests, to overlay observability and tracing ...
Domain specific
Use a customizable domain specific language via drag-n-drop (i.e. for telecommunication, for healthcare, for banking); every customer may defined its own domain language.
Event driven
Non blocking, reactive architecture that scales horizontally and supports very high number of concurrent sessions with low latency for each message.
Platform
Eliminates incidental complexity, taking care of parallelism, synchronization, timers, scalability, overload, high availability, event sequences, retries, versioning. It provides an advanced modelling environment and built in

Product goals: efficient software development

One model for all

Change the model and runtime changes automatically, tests are generated automatically and operations dashboard receives new information.

Short and fast iterations

It enables quick prototyping, versioning, validation. It reduces time to productization by shortening all phases.

Budget efficient

It reduces costs by enabling the grow of development team with domain experts, making changes or improvements to the model without intermediation.

Partner with your customer

Instead of writing specification and run lengthy analysis, customers can work on defining visually the shared model; the changes are immediately tested and validated.

Features

Smart software development platform

Performance

Nexus AEP is build from ground up with performance in mind; this means: five 9s availability, unlimited number of concurrent session (horizontal scalability), low latency (<20ms).

Protocols & Integrations

Protocols:SS7 Application Part, SIP, Diameter, Radius, SMPP, ENUM/DNS, LDAP, HTTP 1.0/1.1/2.0, JMS, JDBC-compliant, SMTP
Integrations:RDBMS via JDBC, NATS, NSQ, Redis, Tibco Rendezvous, Active Directory, Apache MQ,

Deployment

We support bare metal deployment, virtualized with hypervisor, Kubernetes/Docker containers or public cloud environments. The most used options with our customers are virtualized via VMWare, OpenStack and KVM or public clouds. The most common form of shipment is tar balls with Ansible roles (we tend to avoid rpm or deb packages because they require root privileges); even the Docker images are built progressively using Ansible provisioning.

Technologies

90% of our platform is build on top of JVM, using either Java or Clojure programming languages. We are using extensively Redis as a communication bus / message queue (due to small latency and easy administration) while for fronted we use plain Javascript and/or VueJS.
In order to provide advanced processing directly in model specification, or for prototyping, we allow the use of TypeScript or Clojure embedded in the model definition.

Components & Extensibility

There are three main components that we provide: (1) admin UI and designer, (2) real time execution environment and (3) reactive I/O gateways for interworking with the environment.
There are two main directions for extensibility: providing a domain language in the form of model building blocks and providing reactive I/O gateways. Both types can be provided without involvement from Quasar, from us.

Management & Observability

Due to versatility of the platform, and because we enable non-technical people to contribute to development, we pay special attention to observability, tracing, versioning, access management and audit. We map alerts and metrics to the application model, we trace live messages/sessions that can be replayed later and we provide sophisticated, attribute based access control with audit features.
