Our consultancy services for Network Equipment Manufacturers include:

Interoperability support

As service providers deploy increasingly complex networks it is important to understand that network elements from diverse vendors can interoperate.

Many times a network service provider will test the transport network in a vendors lab, then test it during the rollout phase. Similarly the router network will be tested in the lab and then be interconnected over the transport network in the lab, only then find out any interoperability issues between the transport and router network.

Our interoperability consultancy provides support for in-lab interoperability testing including preparation of test plans, equipment requirement lists and on site services. As an independent third party we can assist in arbitrating issues between vendors when trying to identify root cause of issues and testing of necessary fixes.

Test equipment procurement

Understanding the test requirements of the network can be difficult, especially when deploying the latest technologies.

Our outsourced procurement service will produce a technical requirements specification based on your network and service offerings that can be issued to test & measurement equipment vendors.

We will then evaluate the test equipment offerings against the requirement. As a third party we have no vested interests in which instruments are purchased and ensure that we will recommend the most appropriate equipment based on your requirements.
