Large network expansion and network modernization/evolution initiatives are of strategic importance for telecommunications carriers. To realize value early and maintain their competitiveness in their markets, carriers turn to managed service partners to engineer and roll-out networks and technologies fast in addition to operating and maintaining core, transmission, switching, routing, radio, and outside plant infrastructure.
In situations where skills and resources are scarce for fast network engineering and build-out, SIM provide carriers its End-to-End Managed Services solution to build, operate and manage their networks.
By proposing a Build-Operate-Manage (B-O-M) managed service model on parts or all of a carrier’s network, SIM provides its Clients with a high-value managed service offering that truly substantiates the depth of the partnership. Our solution helps carriers:

Description
SIM helps carriers that need to expand, in cost effective manner, parts of their networks to new geographical areas or to introduce a new generation of technology on the core, transmission or access segments of their networks. SIM engineers and rolls-out those parts of the network and manages and delivers all related operation and support services.
While carriers are best positioned to perform strategic planning and procurement/sourcing activities for their products, services, and technology networks, SIM enables their strategies by engaging skilled resources to plan, engineer, install, integrate and test new parts of their networks. We also offer a full range of fault, performance and configuration management services on those deployed parts of the network by performing remote monitoring and field support and optimization tasks. We finally transition and transfer assets and resources to the carrier upon completion of our contract.
