Network Equipment Manufacturers
Network equipment manufacturers are on a path of hyper-innovation to meet the changing demands of carriers.
The telecommunications industry is going through a fundamental transformation as service providers grapple with changing expectations from subscribers about innovation, quality of user experience, and how people are using data. As a result, manufacturers of network equipment must continually strive to deliver solutions that are innovative and cost effective, and allow carriers to operate their networks efficiently while handling ever larger quantities of traffic.
Manufacturers face the additional challenge of balancing investments in developing innovative new products while at the same time sustaining their existing portfolio. Further, the new products must meet the stringent quality criteria of their operator customers, and must be introduced so that they provide a sustainable competitive advantage.
We work with our clients’ CTO, engineering, and CIO organizations to deliver a wide range of innovative services to help them overcome these challenges.
New Product Development
We deliver innovative solutions through our consultants and engineers, who have deep domain expertise across every area of the telecom ecosystem. Additionally, our teams are specialized in specific service lines such as design, development, and testing.
Many of our product development engagements can be jumpstarted by making use of our internal R&D investments in developing software frameworks and protocol stacks. By leveraging our industry-proven code base, equipment manufacturers can de-risk an implementation effort significantly, allowing them to focus on valuable and highly differentiated features.
We have helped develop some of the pioneering products in the market place, including the first inflight broadband system, the first WiMAX product, the first Femtocell solution. We are also one of the first vendors to provide an end-to-end software framework for LTE.
Cost Optimization of Existing Products
As equipment manufacturers look to shift their R&D investments into new product development, they are increasingly challenged with supporting their already successful products in the market. Often, this means that they need to have two teams working simultaneously – one focused on new products and one of existing products.
By working with Aricent, equipment manufacturers can leverage our world class engineering capabilities and our global delivery model. They also benefit from our proven ability to drive down costs on existing products through automation and processes, ensuring that they optimize their investments in sustaining their current product lines.
