ConSol Microservice Factory
Local Integration Gateway – a Bridge Connecting External Users and Internal Backend Systems
By implementing the Local Integration Gateway (LIG) for one of the world’s largest telecommunication groups, ConSol created a comprehensive interface solution. LIG controls the external access – e.g. of shops, branches or contracting partners – to internal systems and applications. The solution is based on up-to-date microservices, processing queries efficiently and error-free. ConSol experts linked more than 80 systems to the LIG. Meanwhile, the system as a whole is processing about 2.5 million transactions a day.
Most Important Technologies Compared
Messaging, SOAP and REST web services – these are the methods we usually choose, depending on the application. The following table illustrates their strengths and weaknesses.
|SOAP Web Services||REST Web Services||Messaging|
|Message Format||Native only XML||XML, JSON, Plaintext||XML, JSON, plaintext, binary data|
|Routing||1-to-1 synchronous communication only||1-to-1 synchronous communication only||Synchronous and asynchronous 1-to-1 communication possible|
|Security||TLS, basic and digest authentication, WSS||TLS, basic and digest authentication, JWT||Mostly native|
|Network Topology||Standard HTTP(S)||Standard HTTP(S)||Special protocols and ports (e.g. JWS)|
|Performance||Performance-intensive||Little performance overhead||Maximum capacity (if asynchronous)|
|Specification / Documentation||Defined specification language (WSDL)||Non-binding standards||No specification syntax specified|
|Software||Web server with SOAP endpoints||Standard web server is sufficient||Central broker and client libraries required|
|Maintenance and Operation||HTTP and XML know-how is sufficient||HTTP and XML know-how is sufficient||Product specialists needed|

From Consulting ...
Together we take a close look: What kind of systems and use cases are already existing, and how does the existing integration solution work? From the insights gained, we will develop the requirements for a new integration solution and then choose the according enterprise integrations patterns. On request, we will provide inhouse workshops in order to train your company’s architects and engineers.
... and Software Engineering ...
DOnce requirements are defined and the integration architecture is established, we will implement the entire integration solution based on the chosen enterprise integrations patterns. Our solution consists of microservices and of course meets cloud native standards. It is therefor flexibly scalable and can be quickly and easily migrated to a cloud environment. In each project stage, we ensure quality through E2E and integration tests.
... to Operations & Service.
We support you through go-live and further on, if so requested. Upon commissioning of the integration solution, we assume maintenance and operation of the software, both is possible either on-premise or in the cloud. Since we work with open source technologies, the solution remains entirely with you – no vendor lock-in, no license fees.
