  3. 3. Section 1 1.1 Introduction The telecommunications sector in Bangladesh has been characterized by a very low level of penetration, limited capability to meet the growing demand, low level of investment and old outdated systems and technologies necessitating reactive remedial measures. In order to develop a national sound telecommunication infrastructure to support the economy and welfare of the country by providing telecommunication facilities on demand, assuring satisfactory quality of service and ensuring value to the customers, a sound National Telecommunication Policy is essential. This is also imperative to ensure the cost based pricing2 of the present as well as the future services to satisfy the need of specialized groups in particular and the public in general. With this in view, this new policy will ensure the orderly development of the telecommunications sector through the provision of services in all the areas of the country, to satisfy the un-serviced demand 3 for telecommunications and to provide equitable opportunity and competition amongst the service providers. The Strategic Vision of the Government is to facilitate Universal Telephone Service throughout the country and where there is a demand, all those value added services such as cellular mobile telephone paging, data services, access to Internet (including electronic mail), Voice mail and video conferencing – all at an affordable cost without compromising performance. To achieve the Vision, Government’s role as a service provider will diminish as the private sector’s role increases. The Government’s objective will be to create a new policy environment to support this new scenario. Its ability to create policy, regulate and facilitate will be strengthened through a new Telecommunications Act which reflects the Government’s new policies, objectives and strategies and the establishment of new institutions including a Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (TRC) which will become the guardian of the Act and fulfill its regulatory functions. The National Telecommunications Policy, issued in March 1998, offers broad intentions for market liberalization but offers few concrete prescriptions for reform. On December 11, 2003 Prime Minister Khaleda Zia said, "Our aim is to build an ICT-driven nation comprising a knowledge-based society by the year 2006." Dramatic progress in basic -2-

The Bangladesh Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (BRTC), established in January 2002, is pushing new initiatives to introduce open up competition in local loop services, rationalize the spectrum policy and establish formal controls over interconnection to stimulate penetration and improve quality of service. Moreover, Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) is an independent Commission established under the Bangladesh Telecommunication Act, 2001 (Act no. 18 of 2001) published by Parliament in the Bangladesh Gazette, Extraordinary issue of 16 April, 2001. The BTRC started functioning from the 31st January 2002. -3-

  9. 9. Section 3 3.1 The Current Proposed Networking Architecture for BTRC IGW Project Figure 3-1 Current networking architecture As per requirement provided by BTRC, we designed the network for future service oriented. But now to meet the basic requirement of BTRC we propose 1*UMG8900 as Media Gateway and Signaling Gateway in Dhaka. The capacity of this Media Gateways already mentioned above. This Media Gateway will connect with one router. Initially the Backbone needs to rent from any Backbone service provider in STM-1/STM-4 level with 1+1 redundancy. We also propose 1 pair of SBC (Session Engine 2300) as Voice Firewall for the protection of internal IGW network from the outside countries’ network. Anther important remark of our solution is, we configure routing policy server for the IGW solution. 3.2 The Future Network Architecture for BTRC IGW Project To give the NP and other service, IGW need to deploy stand along SG7000 as STP in all sites or only in Dhaka with ENUP server. Then the network diagram of Dhaka site will be like below. -8-

  11. 11. 3.3 The Current Proposed Networking Diagram for BTRC ICX Project As per requirement provided by BTRC, we designed the network for future service oriented. That means in future ICX operator can provide NP, SMS, VMS or any other value added services if required by ANS operators. ICX operator can install ENUM, IMEI and Number Portability services as and when required by BTRC. The ICX operator will install and maintain EIR services for the ANS operators. But now to meet the basic requirement of BTRC we propose 3*UMG8900 as Media Gateway and Signalling Gateway in Dhaka, Chittagong and Khulna or Dhaka, Sylhet and Bogra. The capacity of these three Media Gateways already mentioned above. Each Media Gateway will connect with one router. Below is the Backbone connectivity. Initially the Backbone needs to rent form any Backbone service provider in STM-4/STM-1 level with 1+1 redundancy. - 10 -
