As you, our Telecom friends, are starting to look into the giga bytes of data, the heat-is-on on next generation
deployment planning, structured analytics is taking the center stage.

In this magazine some of our thoughts on such analytics – especially on –

  • How in the world are we going to forecast utilization growth more accurately?
  • What do we think of access planning – an optimization exercise or a sequential what-if analysis?
  • How to do an integrated greenfield planning, and
  • Finally, a case study on using analytics to solve one of Cable Operator problems – namely node split costs.

We call ourselves “Business and Technology strategists with analytical twist”. See some of our qualifications on how our team has been assisting our Telecom clients in solving their business problems.

Feel free to contact us if you want to discuss any of the areas highlighted or any areas that you feel we can add value.
