Comarch announced that the company will support Telefónica in the transformation of its transport network in five Latin American countries – Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru. Implementation started in the beginning of 2015 and is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2017. The primary objectives of the project are to optimize network investments, and to bring the company real cost savings in the region.

In 2015, Telefónica introduced Comarch as the official provider of Network Planning and Configuration Management in Latin America. Since then, Comarch sid it has been working in the transformation of legacy OSS (Operations Support Systems) in the region under the company´s transformation program, with the aim of helping Telefónica reduce costs in the creation and operation of the transport network, and to shorten the time to market for new resource deployments.

The implementation will bring about the simplification of the OSS map and network planning processes, as the project assumes commonality of implemented solutions and synchronization of completion date for all five countries. 

The implemented solution encompasses four crucial modules: Comarch Next Generation Network Planning, Comarch Network InventoryComarch Auto-discovery & Reconciliation, and Comarch Configuration Management.This is not the first cooperation between the two companies. Since 2003, Comarch has been supporting Telefónica Germany in its Transport Network Management and Tactical Planning.
