Minimize the risk of WAN Construction

We have together with our customers successfully managed hundreds of WAN Ethernet installations across North America

 

Operational Risks

Missing a deadline, wasting team effort, successive delay of optimal communication are highly frowned upon by enterprise executives.  

Technical Risks

Technical risks are the easiest to understand, if not remove all together, but each installation has a specific set of them.  We help identify all of them.

Environmental Risks

The environment (not only weather) can pose intractable, implacable, immovable challenges. It is one thing to know this, it is quite another to find ways to keep it from becoming a problem.

Operational Risk Examples

  • Site survey issues such as missing or overlooked infrastructure or components, and inaccurate drawings
  • Under-stated or undisclosed LEC requirements
  • Compliance with Landlord agreements, including access to bordering tenant spaces and access limitations
s

Technical Risk Examples

  • Pathway planning: pull boxes or sweeping 90’s
  • Exterior hand hole size requirements
  • Interior Pull box size requirements
  • Pull string / mule tape rating requirements
  • Aerial mast mounting and support requirements

.

Environmental Risk Examples

  • Sub-surface geology and above ground rating for wind & temperature
  • Aerial installations will require lightning strike considerations
  • Landscape, pavement, aesthetic restoration responsibilities
  • Harmful substances that may be disturbed during install, such as lead or asbestos

Removing Risk begins with removing assumptions

Communication, Documentation and Seeing Around Corners are the big three roles for risk mitigation.

Communication

Early, Frequent and granular communication streamlines any project, but especially WAN Ethernet installations with construction requirements.  

Documentation

Documentation is a critical.  Email communications, project agreements, field notes and project conversations should all be recorded and appropriatly dispersed immediatly.

Seeing Around Corners

It is all about expierence.  Knowing what questions to ask, what tasks to prioritize and which stakeholders to approach (and in which order) is paramount to project success.

Gather Information

Obtain all stakeholder information, project documents and timelines.

Verify LEC Requirements

Verify initial requirements with the LEC Engineer that perfomed initial survey.

Aggregated Survey

Perform boring, electrical, carpenter and telecom surveys, as required.

Validate Scope

Review scope and gain scope approval.

Present Budget

Decisions need to be made after requirements have been correctly identified and surveys show actual the work required to meet the requirements.

Product Installation

Perform the tasks required for each portion of the installation through our well defined  process.

Learning through experience

We are continously learning and adjusting to make our process better.  We install hundreds of projects each quarter for our customers…and we use that expierence to make future customer expierences better.

Sometimes you should take the road more traveled.
