MWC 2013, SPAIN: Mahindra Comviva, the global leader in providing mobile financial and VAS solutions, announced that it has been selected by Grameenphone for integrated messaging solution through a competitive process. This will be the largest messaging deployment in Bangladesh, in terms of capacity as the system is designed to cater 5000 TPS (transactions per second).
A highly scalable, cloud-ready and consolidated VAS messaging infrastructure platform, Mahindra Comviva’s integrated messaging solution will enable Grameenphone to efficiently manage a range of messaging related services.
By simplifying management of the complete messaging lifecycle – from service creation and deployment to service management and maintenance – the integrated messaging solution will place greater control in the hands of the operator, enabling faster service launch and implementation of enhanced operational efficiencies.
Manoranjan Mohapatra, CEO, Mahindra Comviva, said: “We are delighted to further extend our long standing partnership with Grameenphone in Bangladesh. Mobile operators across the country are facing fragmentation of their messaging infrastructure due to multiple deployments for SMS, USSD and MMS. Now, with the ever growing consumer demands, operators are looking forward to incorporate new content and applications. This is reason why Grameenphone has selected Mahindra Comviva to optimize their messaging infrastructure and provide rich services to their 40 million subscribers across multiple messaging channels.”
Mahmud Hossain, CCAO, Grameenphone said, “This integrated messaging solution is envisaged to be the next generation messaging solution that will enable us to reduce TCO by consolidating the messaging infrastructure.”
