Network Transformation 2.0

The Problem

A leading Tier 1 Cable MSO was evaluating its multi-year network transformation strategies. They approached DTS to assist them with the analysis, cost forecasting, and material preparation for the board of directors to convince them of their road-map and hence the request for multi-billion dollar incremental funding.

DTS Approach

    • Aligned product and technology evolution roadmaps
    • Developed 15 year bottom-up technology optimization modeling
    • Integrated technology, competitive and product remodeling
  • Convinced C-level executives on the end-to-end strategy
  • Created presentations for C-level execs to present for board approval
