Malaysian mobile operator, webe digital has selected ZTE as the exclusive vendor for the deployment of a virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) network, which has been commercially launched now.

ZTE provides webe with a full range of systems from underlying hardware, virtualization platform, to upper layer applications. The collaboration indicates that both parties have entered into a new phase of virtualization.

webe, a member of Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) and the largest fixed network communication carrier in Malaysia, has begun deploying LTE networks in Malaysia since 2014. In addition, it introduced package service with unlimited data, SMS and calls in 2016, which brought a great challenge to the traditional Evolved Packet Core (EPC) network.

To address customer needs, ZTE said it designed a solution which allows vEPC system and legacy EPC network to form a hybrid network featuring elasticity and on-demand deployment. In addition, ZTE also provided customized services for webe.

The introduction of virtualization technology will make webe’s network resource management more optimal, efficient and flexible. This will also make it more convenient to add new network functions and products, enhancing user experience.
