Bridging the Digital Divide with Large Scale Field Installation
Rural bandwidth continues to see a spike in demand as the market makes space for remote work, Wireless Everything, and access to 5G. A regional optical transport company was building and deploying fast, highly secure, and reliable bandwidth – like ones that urban metros typically see – but needed cell site installation expertise throughout a large, geographically diverse state.
TSG spearheaded a successful field install solution that was responsible for turning up 110 fiber huts/cell sites across the state. This provided the fiber to tower connection that enabled the lighting of their client’s 5G network, and the subsequent high-speed experiences– such as IoT– that wireless connectivity enables. TSG’s flexible model and the project’s unique requirements allowed for a per-location pricing approach, providing the flexibility and cost optimization that enabled the on-time installation.
Through TSG’s consultative approach, we established a lean, customized, and cost-effective installation plan to implement a solution based on fixed pricing per site.
Building & Scaling Teams
TSG provided cross-functional teams up to speed quickly and efficiently, providing the unique flexibility to scale as the project scaled.
The service delivery team managed the project scope as dictated in the SOW, including the equipment coordination for the massive installation, financial performance and overall team performance.
- While maintaining the current network, TSG enabled the on-time successful build-out of cell sites that were crucial to the 5G and wireless efforts of major service providers and wireless network operators.
- Deploying a flexible pricing model and geography-based talent, TSG enabled the regional fiber carrier to optimize their resources and focus on more strategic initiatives.
- TSG helped optimize the field deployment by scenario planning and modeling, catering resources to the installation schedule, geography, site size, and scope.
