GP, Wipro sign deal for advanced network management

Grameenphone (GP) has signed an agreement with Wipro Limited, the global technology service company, as part of its continued efforts to acquire advanced network capabilities.

GP has relied on Wipro as a technology partner to manage application development, infrastructure support and IT security. With its technology leadership and global experience, Wipro has emerged as a leading player in Bangladesh, said a press release.

Wipro's advanced capabilities and operating model will help accelerate Grameenphone's journey towards building a future-fit network that will meet customer's digital experience requirements by boosting the quality of service with the jointly built capabilities for bringing in future technologies, i.e., 5G, touch-free operations and fault management.

This partnership with Wipro will also widen the opportunity for local talent to pursue global opportunities and upskill with a leading tech player.  

Rade Kovacevic, Chief Technology Officer Grameenphone said, "Our role as a tech service leader and connectivity partner has become crucial over the last 24 years in moving Bangladesh forward. To deliver on the ever-growing connectivity needs, boost customer experience, and bring in advanced future technologies, this year we have expanded 4G coverage across the country, acquired the maximum allowable amount of spectrum, partnered with Tower Companies to roll out new towers and gained access to fibre network in partnership with Bangladesh Telecommunications Company Limited (BTCL)."
