Network Management Systems

Our network engineering services can help you cut through the maze of options and enable you to implement cost-effective, high performance networks with high reliability and flexibility.

ARMOR's Network Engineering Program is a set of services that provides you with comprehensive network planning, design and engineering solutions for your network to provide voice, data and video services. Our program includes:

Network Engineering Services and Architecture

These services help you convert your basic business strategy into a technical plan. We develop a blueprint of the network that guides the network and technology choices over many years by specifying:

    1. Components of the network
    2. Functions of the elements of the network and how they are performed
    3. The protocols and interfaces that are applicable in the architecture and for interconnecting to other networks
    4. The data that has to be configured and maintained to run the network
    5. The management and control capabilities that will be used to operate and manage the network elements

These services feature the following components:

 1. Services Portfolio Assessment and Planning reviews the services currently offered by your network and identifies candidate new services that can be offered based on your business plans as well as technology and industry trends. We consider the different classes of customers and the associated pricing strategies, as well as the costs of providing the services when defining an overall services portfolio.

 2. Network Architecture Assessment provides an assessment of your overall network architecture by our experts. The focus of the assessment is to review how well the architecture would be able to meet your business needs going forward given the trends in the industry and the technologies

 3. Network Evolution Plan provides you an overall plan to evolve your network and to incorporate new technologies based on your business drivers and needs. Some of the key drivers in evolving the network include the ability to provide new revenue generating services and to reduce overall costs. We develop plans that would let you seamlessly migrate to the new network for your voice and data services, without affecting customer service, while limiting the possibilities of stranded investments

Network Design

These network design services enable you to select the specific network elements and the configurations, their locations and how they are connecting. These services feature the following components:

 1. Network Fundamental Plan provides you with an overall plan for your networks over the 3 to 5 year timeframe. It identifies the number and sizes of the network elements as well as their features and functions and how they are connected. The plan covers the breadth of the network including the access, switching/routing, signaling and control, transport networks and interconnection to other networks. A key element of this plan could include the steps to network migration.

  2. Requirements Development and Standards Support presents you with the specifications of new elements and services in the network. We build on our participation and leadership roles in key standards bodies to utilize the directions of standards in developing requirements and to provide expert input to the involved standards bodies.

  3. Network Assessments by our experts to determine the efficiency of the network designs as well as network performance, reliability and how it supports Quality of Service for the services provided by the network. Based on the assessments we provide the recommendations for network and technology enhancements.

 4. Network Engineering and Design provides you with the detailed designs and engineering of a specific area based on the Fundamental Plan and the service demand forecasts. The network designs identify the specifics of each element such as quantities (ports, line cards, fibers), capacities (subscribers, database size, trunk/route size), throughput, delay requirements, and availability requirements and include the interconnection to other networks. We use ARMOR and third-party network design tools as appropriate for the designs.

 5. Network Performance Optimization provides you with a comprehensive evaluation to optimize traffic flows, engineer and size the capacity of the network, and monitor service performance.
