Network Upgrade & Transformation

Attain your business objectives thanks to a high performance network

As a telecom operator, you are facing challenges associated with the competition and the developments in networks and devices: control growth in usage and traffic, increase the quality of service, prepare the networks of the future, coupled with the concern to maintain your profitability, find the right balance and correct timing for investing in the network.

Network optimisation necessarily involves qualified control of its life cycle.

1. Build the strategy
Innovation is an ever-present necessity to remain competitive in the market: respond to the offers of your competitors or anticipate the take-up of a new service.
With the explosion in data flows, the next stage is now the convergence of voice and data flows on a same network infrastructure in IP.

The main issue is to reconcile technical performance and economic efficiency, by combining in the best possible way: reactivity (Time To Market), quality of service (QoS, QoE) and cost control (CapEx, OpEx).

2. Specify the design and engineering

The Sewcom AB methodology is the guarantee for success: it is used to define from end-to-end a network architecture that meets the current and expected future technical and business requirements. It guarantees the building and evolution of the network while preserving the key network quality criteria: availability, reliability, security, openness.

3. Deploy the infrastructure

The aim is to guarantee deadlines and control the costs associated with network implementation. The greatest challenge is to succeed the integration in an heterogeneous environment (multi-suppliers, multi-technologies) with no impact on the continuity of the activities. Each deployment phase is secured: installation, configuration, integration, tests and acceptance testing.

4. Operate the network and optimise it

Customers want both transparency (be informed in the case of a malfunction) and reactivity (know that the operator is able to re-establish the service when there is a problem).
Close work between the marketing and network teams enables anticipation of the activity peaks generated by the growth in the customer installed base, the development in usage and the evolution of the devices.
