As companies race to decentralise data centre-based architecture and replace legacy MPLS technology with more affordable broadband bandwidth, it’s important not to underestimate the complexity of such an undertaking. Any significant telecommunications systems upgrade, or greenfield implementation is inherently complex with many stakeholders involved.
Whether your project involves the installation of a new data network, the addition of new features to an existing service, or the deployment of new hardware or a software upgrade, it’s critical avoid or minimise any disruptions to your live network and existing services.
As such, telecommunications projects not only require a strong plan around deployment and go-live, but ongoing operations and maintenance as well. This can be especially challenging as these projects tend to cut across multiple core business services and teams, making project monitoring, controlling, and reporting particularly onerous and time consuming.
