Technical Implementation  

Telecom implementation (TI) is TOPcom’s basic project management delivery service. TI is a stand-alone service, meaning it can be purchased independent of full project management (roll-out management). It typically entails the supply of traditional BTS installation and commissioning services but may also include, depending on the project’s scope of work, NSS telecom implementation services and RF Engineering services. The Telecom Implementation service includes the supply of a corresponding level of project management necessary to ensure service quality and delivery commitment. Project management under this scenario is limited to scheduling and managing the day-to-day activities of the implementation teams, ensuring the delivery of services is defect free and in accordance with customer specification, the creation and submission of relevant site documents, and the timely submission of change orders and customer invoices. Through this arrangement overall management of the project and customer interface resides with either the customer (supplier) or its designated Roll-Out Management (ROM) company. At a minimum the following functional areas are addressed:

Ø      Pre-installation site readiness survey (BTS and or NSS network elements)

Ø      Pick up equipment and deliver to site (BTS only)

Ø      Equipment installation (BTS and NSS network elements)

Ø      Equipment commissioning (BTS and NSS network elements)

Ø      Equipment integration (BTS and NSS network elements)

Ø      Quality inspections (BTS and NSS network elements)
