This is a key strategy in the path of automation of our networks to achieve leaner and meaner Operations. Mavenir is a trusted and reliable partner for this journey, given the know-how and the experience we have with them in Core & Cloud projects,” said Jochen Bockfeld, Director Common Services, O2 Telefónica Deutschland.
