Technical Network Services

Technical Network Services

DTC’s Technical Network Services (TNS) support customer needs around the closure of public exchanges and other technical buildings together with field based activities related to fiber installation to support next generation networks (NGN), and the associated recovery of legacy copper cable infrastructure.

For telecom operators key economic business drivers are associated with phasing out the legacy Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). These include a reduction in operating costs around power, provisioning, support, staffing and maintenance. Additionally the transformation from legacy to IP network platforms is resulting in a considerable reduction in hardware footprint and the need to maintain an extensive property portfolio.

In the field NGN transformation is driving infrastructure change out from copper cable to fiber at the physical layer. A number of variant infrastructure network designs are currently being deployed globally in the physical layer which determine how much copper cable can be recovered as well as what type of services the Operator will overlay this with to serve their subscriber base.

TNS – Building Closure Projects

DTC provide fully managed outsourced solutions or the flexibility to work in tandem, providing additional technical resources to customers embarking on a program of building closures. A consultative approach involves a selection or all of the following key activities with appropriate competencies and technical skills deployed during each stage of the project.

  • Project definition
  • Comprehensive auditing and data gathering ( e.g. network technologies , hardware, existing Access infrastructure and circuits, power)
  • Risk assessment and feasibility report (including cost / benefit analysis)
  • Initial project plan (including budgetary estimates, methodology statements and relevant legal noticing as required).
  • Execution via full DTC Project Management of work packages, resources, skills and logistics.
  • TNS activities fully integrated with DTC’s Reverse Logistics service (recover, resale, recycle), managing the physical clearance of hardware and cabling from the building.
