Oracle today announced that CPFL Telecom
, a new business unit within CPFL Energia, has successfully launched new telecommunications services in the Brazilian market using Oracle Communications MetaSolv Solution
. CPFL Energia is one of the largest non-state-owned groups of electric energy generation and distribution companies in Brazil and is that country’s third-largest electric utility.
This is the first deployment of Oracle Communications MetaSolv Solution for utilities in the Brazilian market.
Oracle Communications MetaSolv Solution provides a comprehensive network inventory that is pre-integrated with order-management and trouble-ticketing functionality. This enables CPFL Telecom to offer next-generation metro-optical network services to other fixed/mobile operators and large enterprises in São Paulo, Brazil.
CPFL Telecom has integrated Oracle Communications MetaSolv Solution with its existing business and operational functions including billing, geographic information system, and fault management. This enables the new business unit to:
Gain full visibility into network resources and services
Eliminate the need for multiple data repositories
Automate previously manual processes, including circuit design of network services and information shared among teams
Plan proactively by monitoring network capacity usage, which helps the subsidiary avoid data traffic congestion and reduce time spent on service interruptions and troubleshooting
Oracle Communications MetaSolv Solution enabled CPFL Telecom to leverage its existing infrastructure without disruption. Currently, the business unit offers 232 gigabits per second of transport capacity over an 800-kilometer fiber-optic network.
PromonLogicalis, a Gold-level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork in Brazil, managed the project and completed the implementation in nine months with support from Oracle Communications Consulting
Oracle Communications MetaSolv Solution is a key component of Oracle Communications Network Resource Management
, which also includes Oracle Communications Unified Inventory Management
, Oracle Communications network integrity products
, and Oracle Communications Network Intelligence
“The deployment of Oracle Communications MetaSolv Solution enabled our entrance into the telecommunications market. We were able to launch network services to wholesale and enterprise customers using a standardized, integrated OSS solution—which was implemented in just nine months. This solution also enables us to stay ahead of market demand—now, we’re ready and able to deploy brand-new services in areas such as smart grid, digital cities, and the Internet of Things in the future,” said Emerson Hioki, director of telecom engineering, CPFL Telecom.
“Like other utilities around the globe, CPFL Energia was looking to create new revenue streams by offering telecommunications services leveraging its existing transmission line infrastructure. We are pleased our technology helped to empower the company’s subsidiary, CPFL Telecom, to successfully enter and compete in the competitive Brazilian communications market,” said Liam Maxwell, vice president of products, Oracle Communications.
“The constant search for operational excellence that creates value for all stakeholders is a hallmark of CPFL Energia. This guided our work from the early planning stages through process definition to solution implementation, leading to effectively establishing its subsidiary, CPFL Telecom. We are proud to have successfully delivered this important project together with Oracle,” Julian Nakasone, solutions director, PromonLogicalis.
