Finnish vendor Nokia is deploying a cloud-based Subscriber Data Management (SDM) solution for Vodafone Egypt that will enable the cellco to offer ‘innovative’ services to its 4G customers. In a press release Nokia claimed that the deployment will help the Egyptian mobile operator to continue transforming its operations around telco cloud technology.
Specifically, the adoption of Nokia’s Telco Cloud Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) will allow Vodafone Egypt to scale its network to meet ‘unprecedented’ increases in data traffic, while also simplifying its operational model. Nokia is also providing cloud integration and implementation services to enable a smooth transition to the SDM solution. Meanwhile, by deploying Nokia Registers, Vodafone Egypt claims it will be able to manage its subscriber data and authentication from a centralised location and across all technologies, fixed or mobile, leading to better network efficiency and faster, smoother introduction of new services.
