Visionael and R Cable y Telecomunicaciones Galicia: Five Years of Successful Collaboration Delivering Advanced Triple-Play Services to Galician Customers


At NXTcomm, Visionael Corporation, the leading provider of next generation IP service automation and delivery management software and services, and R Cable y Telecomunicaciones Galicia (R), the Galician communications operator, today announced their fifth year of successful collaboration in implementing tools to improve productivity.

R has become Europe’s most efficient cable operator, with an operating margin (EBITDA) of 43.2 percent, and productivity per employee approaching 0.83 million Euros. R is also the cable operator with the highest percentage of income from enterprise business at 37.2 percent.

The two companies started collaborating in 2002 with implementing a system that was able to cope with the challenges of securing and managing a complex, steadily growing network and support future planned value-added services.

“We were looking for a network inventory tool that could not only enable us to document our growing network, but also help us to store all the network status information required to support our provisioning and operational systems,” said José Luís González Villamarín, OSS Manager at R. “Visionael offered the best choice for helping us to maintain all the information in a single repository. It has become the core of all our OSS/ BSS module interfaces. The solution enabled us to automate our provisioning, activation and rollout processes, significantly improving business process efficiency and productivity.”

Optimal network performance is key in managing projects with multiple services like R. Visionael’s Network Resource Management (NRM) couples a centralized repository of physical and logical network inventory with an unparalleled combination of capabilities that deliver an accurate, real-time view of network resources. This fine level of control provides the essential foundation for the effective management and delivery of triple-play and value-added services on a large scale.

“Visionael has acquired years of experience in working with communications providers around the globe and understands the day-to-day challenges they face managing dynamic and organic networks,” said Craig Nichols, president and CEO of Visionael. “We are proud to be part of R’s success story and will draw on the positive lessons we learned to benefit new customers.”
