GTPL

GTPL Hathway is one of India's leading Cable TV and Broadband service providers. Their Digital Cable TV services reach an estimated 8 million households in over 500 cities across India. It is the largest MSO in Gujarat with a 67% share of the Cable TV market and is the second largest player in the cable market of Kolkata and Howrah with a 24% market share. It has a significant presence in all other markets that it operates in.

In Jan 2020 TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) promulgated New Tariff Order (NTO 2.0) which mandated a new a-la-carte subscription regime for consumers to subscribe to channels of their choice. This meant that service providers like GTPL would have 10x heavier workload on their IT infrastructure. The legacy system of GTPL was not equipped for this additional stress of GTPL, and sought help from their trusted service providers- BeyonData.

Approach


Business continuity by means of system availability was at the core of this challenge. We extensively analysed their usage, critical areas, challenges for upgradation, migration and ongoing support.

Solutions Architects from BeyonData Team worked closely with Oracle Team to design and developed a high availability solution encompassing Software, Hardware and Cloud Service.

Proposed Solution


A latest version of X8-2M size of Exadata Database Machine for upgrading in moving production database from existing X5-2M size Exadata Database Machine.

Scaling up of hardware utilization by adding more number of Oracle Database licenses as well as upgrading from current version of 11gR2 to 19c.

Converting existing X5-2M database machine into a DR server with 33% capacity with Active Data guard and live reporting.

Implementation of MAA(Maximum Availability Architecture) to ensure 99.99% availability with high levels of data security, data integrity and hence business continuity.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for Data Analytics and Customizable Dashboards to provide real time insight about business and identify areas of improvement with data science.
