Legacy Network Analysis

Legacy Network Analysis

Tempest has the unique capability to offer a range of services, focused on supporting your legacy decommissioning needs. For 3G CDMA and UMTS (Ericsson, Nortel) and products like Genband (Nortel), Tempest offers the technical capabilities necessary to reduce the footprint of your legacy network in order to create room for new technologies. Reduction in footprint can include reductions in underutilized equipment to reduce power consumption, or to reclaim valuable square footage in your existing facilities.  

Our experience includes extensive analysis and recommendations on turning off excess capacity at switch locations, turning down wireless base station carriers and consolidating switches/rehoming BTSs, and migrating traffic as needed. There are numerous scenarios that might apply, and Tempest is here to help your come up with the best solutions based on your needs.
