NTT Communications has partnered Dimension Data -- an ICT solutions and services provider -- to deliver a Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) platform in Hong Kong.
"Delivering a MNVE solution requires heavy upfront investment in specialised equipment, and high scalability and agility is required is difficult to cater to customer demand. It is crucial to find a partner that could work hand in hand with us to provide the required infrastructure to deliver on our MVNE ambitions. We believe that partnering with our group company Dimension Data would be an ideal option" said Taylor Man, Chief Technology Officer of NTT Com Asia, in a press release.
The MVNE platform is responsible for management of all mobile data connections, policy control, billing, and signaling. The platform provides Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) with the infrastructure they need to deliver 3G (UMTS) and 4G (LTE) services.
In line, Dimension Data will leverage a Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) architecture to ensure the scalability of the platform which in turn allows NTT Communications to provide quick go-to-market for its customers and enable them to rapidly launch new mobile services and plans.
"This move will benefit both businesses and consumers, and we are delighted to be entrusted by NTT Communications to roll out this platform in the most cost-effective and efficient manner," said Steve Lam, Managing Director of Dimension Data Hong Kong.
