In August of 2018, a global network services provider with fully managed services and individual network component services needed their HFC network to be built out, with a scope of over 75,000 households.
The two main tasks in this project were digitizing the RF process, as notes were still handwritten and designs were in a specific software format, along with upgrading their RF capabilities from 860/750 MHz to 1.218 GHz, with minimum network changes and cost-effectiveness while improving the performance, security, and reliability as well. The process before we got there had a specific format for field walkout information, along with handwritten notes to be taken for the as-builts. These changes then needed to be updated to maps in a separate platform and loaded in the client's database.
This led to IMMCO taking up the client’s FTTh project in 2019, covering a scope of over 150,000 households. IMMCO handled the initial feeder design to the fiber allocation sheets.
With over 600 jobs from multiple activities to be submitted, we still maintained an exceptional quality average while completing over 15,000 network designs per month. These designs for the network were carried out across multiple software platforms, made possible with our team’s expertise across various software environments. The overall highlights of our work with the client are as follows.
Over 600 jobs from multiple activities submitted
Consistently exceptional quality average across the HFC and FTTh projects
