Comarch will support Telefónica in a large transformation aimed at modernizing their networks, operations and OSS.
Comarch announced that Telefónica, one of the world’s leading service providers with 316 million customers, selected Comarch as the recommended vendor of Configuration Management, Network Planning & Design for Latin America and Germany. The agreement follows a similar decision made in November last year that appointed Comarch as the recommended vendor of OSS Planning & Fulfillment systems for Telefónica Group in Europe.
Modernizing networks and systems by accelerating the deployment of FTTH and LTE technologies, as well as increasing network coverage is one of the pillars of Telefónica’s strategy. The goal is to meet customer needs and deliver innovative digital services, while at the same time improving the efficiency of the operator’s global networks and operations.
By implementing Comarch’s solutions, Telefónica wants to optimize and standardize their network planning processes as well as simplify and automate network configuration management for the group’s companies. Comarch’s solutions for network planning and configuration management for transport networks will support Telefónica’s rollout of new infrastructure in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Germany and Peru. The plan to re-use Comarch’s OSS solutions and business processes across Telefónica’s multiple locations is in line with Telefónica’s global sourcing strategy. The plan also aims to speed up OSS transformations and bring down their costs through group synergies.
