LG U+, a leading mobile operator in South Korea has signed a major contract with Comarch in a bid to completely revamp its OSS stack in preparation for the upcoming 5G rollout.

The upcoming implementation will allow LG U+ to migrate from its old in-house solution to a modern and comprehensive telco ecosystem, says Comarch. This will upgrade the Operator's network resource and service management, covering Operations Support & Readiness, Fulfilment and Assurance domains

Comarch will oversee the implementation of a complete stack of solutions consolidating the existing tools landscape into one unified, scalable platform in the areas of mobile and fixed networks. The Comarch system will also serve 3G, 4G and fixed network domains.

The solution delivered by Comarch will help LG U+ break IT architecture silos, prepare for efficient fulfilment of modern, 5G-based services, increase network management effectiveness and cut its costs through automation. It will also provide the tools to create logical connectivity layers in a unified format, support network virtualization, and handle the monitoring of network, service and customer layers. Comarch OSS will also empower LG U+ Intelligent Assurance & Analytics including an embedded machine learning engine.

Jacek Lonc, EVP Sales Telco Division, Comarch
The delivery of our OSS platform, which comprises close to 20 modules, will bring our customer a world-class, integrated solution enabling the efficient management of services delivered via mobile and fixed networks. 

Hokyung Kwon, NMS Development Team Leader, LGU+
At LG U+ we currently use an in-house developed OSS stack. As the current IT architecture is silo-based, we experience a number of challenges regarding the introduction of new technologies such as 5G and network virtualization.
