“As data consumption in our networks continues to grow rapidly, our customers expect an experience that is similar to that of a voice call” said Juan Manuel Caro Bernat, Director of Operations & OSSs, Telefónica S.A. “Streamlined capacity planning is critical in realizing our strategy. The key to doing this successfully is to have a business partner who has experience in doing this at a large scale. VPIsystems’ agility and their ability to truly understand our requirements and challenges were key factors in our decision.”
“We are pleased that Telefonica has selected us for their Transport Network Optimization Program,” said Tito Sharma, President and Chief Executive Officer, VPIsystems. “The tremendous growth in the adoption of smart phones over the last few years has greatly increased data traffic on operators’ networks. This is creating a need for network optimization software to accommodate these demands as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.”
