Telefónica has signed a managed services contract with Huawei for end-to-end OSS as the vendor announced it is increasing investment in its professional services business. 

Huawei will supply its Performance Management Solution as part of the Telefónica’s ongoing efforts to simplify its OSS offering for its Latin American network. 

The China-based vendor’s service offers unified, multi-vendor support for mobile, fixed and data service management, as well as performance troubleshooting and “Telco Value Asset” support to help Telefónica share knowledge across its affiliates in the region. 

Juan Manuel Caro Bernat, Operations & OSS Director at Telefónica, said: “Telefónica’s OSS simplification strategy is based on the standardisation, simplification and automation of the processes and technologies across our footprint.” 

Meanwhile, Huawei announced it will increase investment in its professional services division. 

It did not specify how much it will commit, but said the new investments will be used to fund a variety of projects, including the development of a system integration centre in North America, the launch of a Telco OS platform integrating OSS and BSS in 2015, and the upgrade of a CT-based Network Operations Centre to a full ICT-based Application Operations Centre.

The investment also includes an NFV and Service Provider Operations labs opened in China and Ireland earlier this year. 

Dr Leroy G Blimegger Jr, SVP of Huawei Global Technical Services and Global President of Assurance & Managed Services commented: “With user behavior changes revolutionising the way digital resources are consumed, operators have to decide the steps to take to enable the evolution of network architectures, operation models and more effective industry collaboration. 

“Based on our SoftCOM strategy, Huawei has been working together with many global operators to match their strategic positioning to consumer demands, and to build capabilities primarily in five areas: consulting and systems integration, open digital operations, building of open cooperative ecosystems, traditional BSS/OSS to Telco OS evolution, and big data and user experience management.”
