Ncell, the private telecom operator has adopted Alibaba’s Apsara Cloud platform to achieve its Digital strategy. Whale Cloud, the strategic partner of Alibaba embeds the cloud platform in Ncell premises.
In this digital era, IT companies need to transform their legacy approaches in handling the data. The traditional data center is quite expensive and inefficient with the absence of features like scalability, security, and automation. Hence the telecom company deploys the cloud platform to be more efficient and less time-consuming.
Alibaba’s Apsara Stack is a full-stack cloud solution created by Alibaba Cloud company. Apsara Stack employs a distributed architecture based on Alibaba Cloud to create an open, unified, and reliable cloud platform for enterprise-class customers. It offers flexible scalability without compromising the performance of the upper-layer applications, guarantees secure protection of enterprise data, and facilitates operation and maintenance management (O&M).
Moreover, it provides AI platforms and state-of-the-art machine learning frameworks. It also supports elastic GPU computing services, making Apsara Stack an ideal platform for the development of smart applications.
Whale Cloud has implemented the Apsara cloud in Ncell, together with its Digital BSS solution. With the cloud-native architecture design, Digital BSS can fully leverage the built-in technologies of Apsara Cloud including big data analytics, AI, middleware, and security services to facilitate Ncell to develop business more intelligent, reliable, hyper-scalable, and secure.
Apsara Cloud is the private cloud serving as the digital foundation for Ncell to accelerate the vision of “New Generation Digital Champion by 2020”. With this cloud platform, Ncell can leverage the accessibility of data intelligence and AI intelligence’s products and technologies. Ncell has adapted to this new agile IT platform to enhance the customer experience to meet ever-changing customer requirements. In the future, both core telecom business and vertical industry solutions will be migrated to the cloud platform to fully leverage the benefits from the Apsara Cloud platform. Source
