Access & Interconnect Optimization

Telecom operators combine their own network assets with third party network inputs in order to provide services to their customers. We help Telcos minimize cost and maximize efficiency of third party inputs by identifying the optimal interconnect partners, locations, platforms and technologies.

Our Approach

We use a modular approach to systematically analyze the complex data environment typically associated with Access and Interconnect cost base.

Combining this approach with our deep expertise in networks, we identify and qualify cost reduction opportunities, delivering cost reduction and providing tools and methodologies for “in life” use.

We can help with:

  • Audit, review and benchmarking—cost categorization and cost drivers.
  • Cost optimization—interconnect footprint optimization, product strategy and profitability assessment, least cost routing; commercial and regulatory opportunities.
  • Network economics—on-net vs off-net; coverage analysis; cost/margin lifecycle management.
