Capacity Management Trial

SUMMARY

  • Axicom tested a major carrier’s assumptions that they were out of capacity at 29 sites.
  • On average 20% additional capacity was made available for the major carrier’s own use, whilst simultaneously reducing levels of risk, CAPEX and disruption associated with traditional techniques.
  • After portfolio review and analysis, the major carrier unlocked $3.9 million in savings.

capacity (up to 20%), improve deployment speed, and mitigate risk, CAPEX and disruption from potential site relocations.

Solution

A Capacity Management Trail was conducted through a number of Axicom’s advanced engineering capabilities. The sites were assessed using ‘Axicom Design Guidelines’ frameworks, then analysed through a traffic light report (RAG).

Of the 29 sites processed, 41% were seen to be adequate, requiring no immediate upgrades. A further 37% were able to be upgraded using Axicom’s various site upgrade solutions.

RESULTS

The Capacity Management Trial demonstrated Axicom’s engineering services capabilities. Using Axicom solutions, the potential to achieve faster deployment, unlock latent capacity and eliminate unnecessary structural upgrades was significantly increased.

The application of Axicom’s engineering techniques and frameworks provided initial CAPEX reductions of $3.9 million, whilst further mitigating risks associated with the undertaking of unnecessary upgrades.
