Services for Wireless Telecom

RF (GSM/CDMA/WCDMA/HSPA+/WiMAX/LTE)

Network Deployment Service
Wireless and telecommunications service providers must continually expand their service offerings to keep up with the demands of their customers and the market for new and innovative services.

As new services are offered, a carrier must continually expand their network to meet and exceed capacity demands. The bottom line for the carriers is to offer these new services to attract new customers and retain existing customers, while ensuring an optimal customer experience.

Site development is essential to accomplishing these objectives. Utilizing existing sites to expand their network presence is cost effective, but requires a continual focus on upgrading existing infrastructure and technologies. In addition to utilizing existing cell sites, carriers must expand through new site builds. Site development requires a broad range of knowledge and experience to ensure it’s done effectively and efficiently.

SyncRoute provides a range of Site Development Services that can support clients at all stages of site development. We have deep expertise in providing the following essential Site Development Services.

  • Strategic suggestions on where to concentrate investments creating a balance between network performance and required network resources
  • Improvement of the operator’s way of working through joint activities with our experts, using their global experience

Managed Services

In today's evolving telecommunications market, operators as well as OEM vendors are looking to save money while making the most of existing investments. Increased competition is forcing operators to focus on customer-facing operations and to allocate their non–core, back-end operations to vendors, which may include outsourcing network management and design.
Carriers and vendors have had long relationships, and operators trust vendors to know their gear and how to keep the network running smoothly. As such, more and more carriers are moving toward managed services as a way to do business.

A managed services solution's ability to make operators more efficient and cut costs is based on three major factors: service levels, skills and relationships. The service level agreement is an integral part of a managed services agreement. Customers benefit from the proactive response of vendors in adhering to SLAs and reducing mean time to repair.

Services for Wireline Telecom

Optical SDH

Next Generation SDH Network Solutions
SyncRoute has gained comprehensive experience in optical SDH applications by providing consultancy, network design and installation/commissioning of medium and large-scale SDH applications for metro and long haul network. The choice of SDH depends on the requirements of the various utility sectors and Telco for capacity, protection features and facilities, and on the technology used in the existing networks.

SDH Network (Metro/Regional and Longhaul)
Due to the benefits of multiple protection facilities, flexibility, bandwidth and integrated services like Ethernet and ATM streaming, SDH based equipment has become a more cost efficient solution for most applications compared to PDH technology.

To maintain a high degree of reliability, our solutions offers complete equipment protection as well as traffic protection such as SNCP, 1+1 MSP and MS-SPRing, as well as combinations of protection schemes that are typically used for interconnection of ring networks.

Broadband (DSL or Cable)

All In One Broadband is a platform that provides single management interface with multi-OSS-functionality for the broadband access services, which contains equipment from different vendors and different network access technologies.

Today, broadband services for Internet users can be provided through different technologies such as the xDSL, Wi-Fi, 3G, LTE, WiMAX or fiber transmission solutions. Telecommunications service providers use different vendors to source these equipment and different infrastructures are built by considering their advantages and outstanding features. Service providers target, providing reliable, high quality services to end-users regardless of the access technology.

Service providers procure different technologies from different vendors to minimize technology risk and reduce the CAPEX by introducing multi-vendor competition. This typical decision process ends-up with infrastructures those are combination of wide variety of technologies and products. This type of multi-vendor infrastructure have some advantages but configuration and management of system is too complex, time-consuming and very costly.

SyncRoute offers AIO BB, a product that is easy to use and significantly reduces system administration costs as a general solution to all this type of configuration and management problems for the telecommunication service providers.

Basic Principle of AIO BB is to combine multi-vendor, multi-technology broadband access infrastructures into a single, easy to use multi-feature platform to reduce the OPEX , to increase the customer loyalty and reduce CHURN.
