The company says this new network will ensure financial services can continue to operate when mobile voice and messaging services are suspended.
VEON, which operates in various global markets says it is planning on deploying this network in Pakistan through its mobile operator Jazz.
It will use network slicing technology on a 4G network to separate financial services from all other mobile services. This will enable financial services to continue operating even if mobile voice and messaging services are suspended.
VEON says the financial damage inflicted by a network shutdown is estimated to be $23.6 million per 10 million population per day.
