Nokia has announced the signing of a managed services contract to transform Telefonica Germany’s fixed and mobile operations, driving increased quality and efficiency. The Finnish vendor will simplify and centralise the German firm’s mobile access, core and fixed network operations, as well as back office tasks, including network monitoring and preventative maintenance. Nokia currently provides managed services to the E-Plus network, which was acquired by Telefonica Germany in 2014, but from September 2016 the vendor will extend the provision of its network management tools, processes and expertise in a phased approach, with development of a simplified management structure across Telefonica Germany’s entire mobile access, core and fixed network operations. Under the new contract, Nokia will work with Telefonica Germany as it continues its network consolidation programme, transforming its converged network operations and driving high quality services for subscribers.
Commenting on the agreement, Telefonica Germany’s CTO Cayetano Carbajo Martin said: ‘Levering Nokia’s expertise as a managed services supplier across our entire network will allow us to simplify operations and enhance performance and quality, allowing us to concentrate on delivering an outstanding subscriber experience across Germany.’
