Alcatel Lucent has signed an agreement with Telef nica to overhaul the operator's network management systems. Under the agreement, Alcatel Lucent will combine the network management systems at the core of Telefonica's operational support systems into a single, global software platform.
This platform will play an essential role in operations monitoring and management as well as in the resolution of network problems.
Today, Telefónica's operational processes differ from country to country and use a number of software platforms: Alcatel-Lucent will design, build and deploy a single service-assurance platform. In addition, Alcatel-Lucent will help Telefónica combine the best practices and operating procedures developed in the different operations of Telefónica Group with Alcatel-Lucent's experience in operational support system deployments.
Alcatel-Lucent will help standardize both software and procedures for network management across Telefonica's fixed and mobile networks. The single global software platform will improve response times for the resolution of network issues. The platform will also help Telefonica streamline its operations.
Alcatel-Lucent will also maintain the platform for the coming years.
