Network Consolidation for M&A

Comarch Network Consolidation for M&A helps telecoms companies organize and streamline network planning and consolidation processes efficiently in merger and acquisition (M&A) projects. The solution is built of various components from Comarch's next generation OSS portfolio.The core modules of the solution include Resource & Network Inventory, Planning Framework (with Radio, Transport and Core technology packs), Geographical Information System (GIS), Mediation, Reporting and Business Process Management. The Pairing and Rating engine, used for automatic benchmarking and site selection, has been developed specifically for that solution and extends the capabilities of network inventory planning.

Mobile Network Consolidation - Comarch Solution Benefits

Plan Your Target Network Before Gaining M&A Approval

Thanks to the built-in data access rights management functionality, it is possible for Comarch to migrate and operate on data from both sides of the M&A process, while isolating the sensitive data until receiving approval from the authorities. This speeds up site selection and planning the target, consolidated network so that, when the M&A is officially approved, you can begin operational activities right away. A further consolidated rollout process can be provided in a unified, controlled manner.

Customize Your Network Planning Workflows

The solution comes with easily configurable business processes, used to orchestrate the target network planning workflow. The management can easily track and report process milestones, which allows a constant and clear overview of consolidation process.

Get a Consistent View of Your Network Planning Processes

Browse radio and transport planners’ decisions and results in the form of convenient reports or views. Take a look at your network using the geographical view. Measure the progress and consolidation outcomes with configurable KPIs.

Synchronize with Other OSS Tools

Synchronize all M&A activities managed within the solution with legacy OSS tools, thanks to a built-in mediation module.

Plan any Network in any Technology

The tool supports all radio technologies (2G/3G/4G) together with market-used logical and physical transport layers.

Easily Extend to Other Comarch OSS Modules

As your needs change you can expand the solution with a wider set of capabilities from Comarch OSS Suite, as the solution reuses the Comarch NG Network Planning framework. For example, you may extend the solution with Comarch Configuration Management to provision changes directly on network resources.

Increasing the Efficiency of Telecom Network Consolidation - Case Study

Comarch Next Generation Network Planning helped us to start planning the target network and realize our first network consolidation activities almost immediately after the merger approval. Moreover, with this powerful solution we were able to plan the target network within two months, in an efficient process engaging only Telefónica employees. Telefónica Germany and the Comarch project team cooperated closely and intensively. We greatly appreciate the flexibility and professionalism of the Comarch team.
