24 January 2003 -- Greenwoods Communications, UK, has launched a 'Network Rationalisation' service to help communications operators control the capacity on their networks and cut capital expenditure.

The service will enable operators to outsource the re-distribution of existing equipment across a network in response to fluctuating traffic volume, eliminating the need to purchase new and costly kit.

While operators currently have more capacity than they are likely to need in their backbones, the local network rings are suffering from uneven demand, says Greenwoods.

To optimise network capacity, operators need enough routing equipment in the right place at the right time to cope with this demand. As a result of the downturn, telecoms companies are increasingly unwilling to expend capital on costly new equipment.

Greenwoods' Network Rationalisation service allows operators to remove under-utilised equipment from one site and re-deploy it at other sites where traffic is high.

By outsourcing this function to Greenwoods, operators are able to improve network performance without incurring the cost of recruiting or retraining to acquire the necessary skill sets. In this way, operators can maintain their focus on the technical delivery of core services to customers.

"With shareholders breathing down their necks, anything that reduces capital expenditure is a major boon for operators," said John Greenwood, managing director. "Our new rationalisation service allows operators to keep up with the capacity demands at busy sites without having to buy more expensive equipment."
