ZTE and Banglalink announced the successful smooth migration of 60 million legacy users, and formal commercialisation of world’s largest virtual Subscriber Data Management (vSDM) platform in Bangladesh, which marks a significant milestone in digital transformation.

ZTE claims that 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 virtualization technology to achieve hardware and software decoupling, and uses 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-NE integration database solution to meet the requirements of multi-network integration and large capacity. The virtualization technology will bring faster speeds, and help users realise digital transformation as a result. 60 million Banglalink users will benefit from the virtualization of the network, said ZTE.

Erik Aas, CEO, Banglalink
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 commercialization of the virtual SDM platform. 

Vincent Liu, CEO, ZTE Bangladesh 
I am honoured, on behalf of ZTE, together with Banglalink, to announce the official commercialization of the SDM platform. As the strategic partner of Banglalink, we will continue to be committed to providing the best services and solutions for Banglalink, to help Banglalink achieve continued business success.
