Madrid, July 13th, 2020. Onivia and the IT consulting company Optare Solutions, have reached a strategic agreement through which the wholesale operator is tackling the implementation of its operation support systems (OSS) and business support systems (BSS), with the aim of having optimal processes and a wide scalability of the systems in a secure and efficient way, which will allow it to approach new markets and incorporate new layers of services by participating very actively in the flexibilization of broadband access in the Spanish market.
In the search for the most suitable company to provide these services, Onivia has prioritized, among its hiring conditions, the specialization in the sector and the previous experience in the definition of agile processes and the deployment of OSS platforms, both key to support the expected growth in clients and in available footprint.
Onivia’s CEO, José Antonio Vázquez, disclosed “we have been searching for a partner who offers us technological solvency to adapt us to the standards and demands of the sector, and who, at the same time, has extensive experience working in the field of telecommunications. For these reasons we have chosen Optare Solutions, a reference company in consultancy for the telecommunications sector. Their extensive knowledge of the Spanish fibre market and wholesale processes was a key factor in our decision.

It is a real challenge for the whole team, which we have taken on thanks to our experience gained from working with major clients in the sector over the last 18 years, and we are eager to collaborate on an exciting project aimed at boosting the growth of Telecommunications”.
