Challenges
  • "New technologies and time to market are key enablers to ensure that operators stay ahead of the competition"

    Competition in the industry has intensified in recent years due to rapid technological advancements. This competition has lowered the bar for new entrants and allowed fixed and mobile networks to compete not only with each other but also with cable operators and satellite providers. Networks have grown quickly in response to market dynamics. Data traffic continues to grow exponentially, leading to bottleneck congestion in the operator networks and a declining quality of experience for end users.

  • Customer benefits

    In their bid to remain competitive, network operators are constantly resorting to network optimisation to deliver the right balance of customer service experience and cost. The aim is to reduce OPEX and optimize CAPEX, to provide maximum efficiency with existing networks and to increase revenue with minimum investment.

Case studies
  • New infrastructure across 20 countries at Carlsberg
    Carlsberg is the world’s fourth largest brewery group. The flagship brand – Carlsberg – is one of the best-known beer brands in the world. More than 43,000 people work for the Carlsberg Group.

  • Building a multiservice network design for a network equipment supplier
    A network equipment supplier needed to propose an access aggregation network concept. Devoteam delivered the network design to the customer, including protection, services and dimension concept. The result was a footprint-optimized solution, including CAPEX savings up to 15%.
  • Achieving huge OPEX savings for a leading network operator
    For over 2 years, Devoteam worked with a leading UK operator to investigate and implement OPEX savings within its transmission department in addition to improving processes. Cost savings were achieved by the understanding of processes, systems and finances for all leased customer circuits before taking action to remove and consolidate circuits as well as management of customer invoices on behalf of the operator. The net result was a €13,8 million saving, identification and rectification of database defects in toolsets, and a policing function to stabilise transmission planning quality in the network.

    Performing quality assurance testing for Next Generation Intelligent Network migration
    The main challenge of one of the major Belgian telecom operator was to make an inventory of all impacted end-to-end services in the network that have been implemented over the years. The project covered the quality assurance - discussing and evaluating the business requirements of new pre-paid promotions, validating and testing the development and delivering the validated promotions to the operational department. Thanks to our fully automated test package, the customer can execute a significant test scope for every software application or configuration update in just a few working days.
