Banglalink and ZTE have completed the migration of 60 million legacy users to the world’s largest virtual Subscriber Data Management (vSDM) platform in Bangladesh.
The formal commercialisation of the platform marks a significant milestone in digital transformation. The virtual SDM platform possesses the largest capacity in the world, and will help Banglalink achieve more efficient user data management and enhance service availability.
The vSDM platform uses advanced virtualisation technology to achieve hardware and software decoupling. It deploys generic commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware to achieve flexible and elastic on-demand deployment, saving investment and operation and maintenance (O&M) costs, meeting continuous network evolution and service needs such as 5G and IoT.
It uses a large-capacity multi-network element integration database solution to meet the requirements of multi-network integration and large capacity. The virtualisation technology will bring faster speeds, and help users realise digital transformation as a result.
Banglalink CEO Erik Aas said: "Banglalink has been trying to create a truly digital inclusive society, and with the support of its partner we have taken a big step towards that goal through the successful commercialisation of the virtual SDM platform. The implementation of the world’s largest vSDM is a landmark for both companies and Banglalink will always support to introduce new technology to become the best digital service provider in Bangladesh."
ZTE Bangladesh CEO, Vincent Liu, said: "As the strategic partner, we will continue to be committed to providing the best services and solutions for Banglalink, to help them achieve continued business success."
