Telecom equipment maker Nokia said Vodafone Egypt is deploying a cloud-based Subscriber Data Management (SDM) solution to offer innovative services to its 4G customers.
The deployment of Nokia’s Telco Cloud Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), under the Spring SDM project, helps Egypt’s largest telecom service provider scale its network to meet increase in data traffic while simplifying its operational model.
Nokia said it also provides cloud integration and implementation services to enable a smooth transition to the SDM solution. The deployment is a significant step in the transformation of Vodafone Egypt’s network.
Engineers at Vodafone Egypt will be deploying Nokia Registers to manage its subscriber data and authentication from a centralized location and across fixed or mobile technologies. This leads to better network efficiency and faster, smoother introduction of new services, Sharaf ElDin Mohamed, head of the Vodafone Egypt Customer Team at Nokia, said.
Osama Said, CTO at Vodafone Egypt, said: “Nokia’s SDM solution is enabling us to enhance efficiency by consolidating subscriber data across various networks. This is one of the earliest applications over the cloud and is not only helping us by offering a superior experience to our customers but also by simplifying our operational model.”
