The largest utility company in Spain, Endesa, part of the market-leading pan-European utility company ENEL, has selected Ericsson to operate its entire corporate telecommunication network through a four-year managed services agreement where Ericsson will be the sole services provider for Endesa's corporate telecommunication network.

The agreement allows Endesa to improve network efficiency and increase focus on its core business as Ericsson takes full responsibility of the daily operation of all services associated with the telecom network; network operations in the network operations center, maintenance, installation services, engineering and construction management.
