Oracle Communications Solutions 3i integrates telecommunications and Internet technologies to address the specialised needs of communications companies in the Asia Pacific market. The markets in these countries are among the most vibrant and growing ones in the industry.
These applications will strengthen Oracle's core Internet and e-commerce business and further reinforce its 85 per cent database leadership share in the Asia Pacific telecommunications industry.

Oracle solutions are fast being adopted across the board by players in the telecom industry, including telecommunications carriers and equipment manufacturers.
Telecommunications is Oracle's second largest vertical sector. Given the expanding number of telecom companies in the Asia Pacific region and the fact that this business leverages vertically into related sectors such as utilities and telecom equipment, Oracle expects communications to continue to be one of its largest and fastest-growing core businesses.
