China Mobile Guangdong Case Study

Case Study: China Mobile Guangdong Uses RapidsDB to Modernize Big Data Architecture and Deliver Better Customer Experience


China is leading the telecommunications markets in Asia Pacific. According to Statista, it had more than 1.5 billion mobile service users in 2019. China Mobile (CMCC), the third-largest telecom provider based on revenue, has the largest telecommunications network in the world.

China Mobile Guangdong (GMCC) is one of the subsidiaries of CMCC as well as the largest telecommunications operator in the Guangdong province of China. It primarily earns revenue from wireless, broadband internet, and business services. With the explosive increase in data volume, velocity and variety, GMCC's legacy data frameworks, which include Hadoop, Redis, Db2, Oracle, etc., start to reach their limit. Some of the challenges that they are facing include:

  • The siloed data management environment makes it difficult and costly for GMCC to access, process and analyze data in a timely manner in order to meet business objectives.
  • The complex big data architecture demands a heavy workload for the IT department to maintain and ensure data security and governance.
  • The self-service capacity is very limited due to the slow query performance and a lack of a unified query language.
