Network Implementation Plan

The network implementation plan service provides you with expert project planners who review the high-level design and detailed design and prepare a network implementation plan document that will implement the planned change in the most efficient manner with minimum disruption to your existing services.

Our designated consultants will provide guidance on synchronizing the plan deliverables into your existing project plan in case this network change is part of a wider project rollout. Leveraging experts from Veritas will minimize your risk and ensure quality deployment with a faster turn-up of your new infrastructure elements.

 

 

Network implementation plan review:
Having an expert review any existing network implementation plan document will definitely help identify any gaps or risks that may have not been highlighted. The network implementation plan review service provides this additional level of diligence needed to ensure project tasks are optimally planned and deliver on the promise with minimum risk.

Network design validation and testing:
Customers have the option of having Veritas networks engineering team test the solution prior to shipment. The goal is to identify any interoperability issues faster and with proven testing processes before sending the equipment to the field sites. Our network design validation and testing service leverages the network implementation plan to build, configure and test system at factory. Based on documented test plans and lab topologies, the team performs intensive system wide and sub-system testing to proactively identify and make design modifications if needed.

This team will generate a test report documenting the findings. Customers can benefit immensely from this service that will enable a “plug-and-play” installation at field sites based on the detailed system integration testing documentation provided. Proven best practices show that having issues identified at the factory saves customers time and money when it comes to getting your network solution online.

 

Deploying A Network:
Deploying a network requires significant investment in resource planning and training to meet the challenge:

  • Equipment integration or out of box failure issues
  • Managing the logistics between equipment vendors and service deployment partners to meet installation timelines
  • Continuous training for staff on process and technology

Our factory processes, tools and infrastructure have a proven record of handling equipment configuration and testing, making sure the equipment and related system accessories are operational before shipment. These activities result in reduced field install time and risk of failures and eliminate some common operational issues related to equipment configuration and shipment at the install site.

At Veritas, we know what it takes for a rapid installation and getting equipment in service and running traffic.

Factory Assembly & Integration Services:
Per customer order, plug-in cards and SFPs can be factory installed into the radio chassis. Additionally, software and licenses are programmed onto SD flash card which is then installed into chassis as well. RF testing is performed to ensure the links are running smoothly. The benefits of these factory services speak for themselves, they:

  • Quickens the field install time;
  • Provides greater factory assurance by ensuring the link operates without issues before shipment; and
  • Reduces the risk of failures during installation / turn-up

Factory acceptance & testing service:
Veritas provides standard acceptance testing that can be witnessed by end customers to validate and sign-off on network testing performance at Veritas’s factory premises.

  • Tests modeled on assembly line final test protocols.
  • Test plan performed in presence of customer at Veritas Integration Lab.
  • Sub-system level integration possible to assure functionality and performance as per customer requirements.
  • Customer provided with overview of the production process including inventory management, manufacturing and quality assurance practices.

Installation and Configuration
Installation and configuration services provides the essential preparation of equipment at site (unpack, inspect, inventory) along with onsite expert installation services covering labeling, connection, initial configuration and power-up and system tests on Veritas Networks products and other OEM equipment in your complete solution.

Testing as per acceptance standards and best practices is conducted making sure the solution is compliant, secure and safe to operate. The Veritas team will initiate actions to correct any faults on a timely basis.

Benefits:
Minimize your on site risk and ensure quality deployments with faster time-to-market by leveraging best practices in installing and commissioning the solution and expert handling by Veritas Networks.

Turnkey network deployment:
Network deployment service provides a turnkey solution for installation of Veritas Networks and OEM equipment. This includes networking equipment installation, antenna installation alignment, cabling and waveguide installation. Experts conduct power, grounding and safety checks and setup the equipment and shelter alarm and monitoring connections needed. The service provides sub-system inter-connection and configuring of devices for traffic routing, router and switch configuration, EMS / NMS addressing, customization and additional checks as needed.

Benefits:
Increased warranty provides you better return on investment

The Challenge:

Public Safety Microwave Often Left To Deteriorate:
In many cases, public safety agencies make one-time purchases for microwave technology and then, often for budget reasons, leave the network to sit, untouched for many years. Leaving the microwave network unsupported and vulnerable to technology obsolescence can create some serious problems.

NETWORK DOWNTIME: Out of date microwave that is not under a 24Å~7 support contract is more likely to cause issues. Preventive maintenance has been proven to reduce errors over time.

POOR PERFORMANCE: The microwave network can suffer from poor performance with out of date software. New microwave software upgrades are constantly being made available by the manufacturer to enhance security, capacity, reliability and other capabilities.

HIGH COSTS: No plan for consistent financing means no funding to ensure these upgrades occur thus keeping the network in top-top shape.

Veritas Lifecycle Support
