Methodologies and Tools
Our Network Management services support all lifecycle aspects and stages, including defining an architecture and functions, creating a systems view, writing systems requirements, defining interfaces, creating process flows, selecting products, implementation, testing, training and establishing a network operations center. We leverage the following approaches to ensure overall success:
- Process re-engineering. We evaluate your present mode of operations (PMO) and work with you to set the vision for the future mode of operations (FMO).
- Standards and requirements. We follow the appropriate standards and directives as applicable to your project, and develop well-defined, testable requirements to ensure that all goals are met.
- RFP creation. We develop an RFP and ensure that its requirements are feasible and provide the best value for money.
- RFP response evaluation. We create objective RFP response evaluation criteria based on what is important to you and overall project success, giving you confidence in the final selection that is made.
- Systems Integration. We write scripts, configure, tune and test EMSs and NMSs to interoperate and meet your service needs.
- Training. We provide necessary training for all components to ensure that your staff is fully prepared to manage the new or upgraded network.
