Build the right network - at the right time
See over-the-horizon to uncover network deployment risks before they become problems
Cable operators are working hard to address the pressures for greater bandwidth capacity and speed through significant investments in the upgrade of their HFC networks.
However, large network upgrade deployment programs not only touch the network itself but affect, and are affected by, many complex interactions with the various business units throughout an operator’s organization.
Failure to foresee and manage these interactions often results in significant losses of financial and operational efficiency for the project itself, as well as the affected business units.
Unfortunately, traditionally available project management tools typically concentrate on managing activities and resources within the project itself but leave out the ability to foresee and control these effects and their impact on overall business performance.
This allows unintended consequences to propagate unseen from one part of the business to another until the damage is done.
NetVersant DeployTM fills the gap between traditional project management tools and operational systems. NetVersant DeployTM allows operators to see over the horizon to proactively head off project risks before they become problems by providing:
- The ability to model and quantify cause and effect relationships between project elements and the rest of the organization;
- The ability to access data from any source and quickly analyze resource needs, dependencies, business rules and constraints to automatically create and verify a plan.
- A 'what-if' simulator that allows users to 'drag and drop' proposed plan changes, evaluate business rules and forecast impact on program outcomes. This reduces in-flight change impact analysis from weeks to hours.
- An 'over-the-horizon' risk analyzer that gives early warning of potential risks, even when tasks and resources have not yet been assigned in traditional project management tools.
