What is the problem? Linear upgrade strategies in a single technology domain are no longer sufficient to keep up with growing service demand and complexity. Building a comprehensive transformation strategy requires deep understanding of the impact of both linear and non-linear upgrade paths. The current tools to build transformation plans are not capable of handling

Telecom operators spend ~ 90% of their yearly capital on access networks. Access network planning is becoming exponentially complex (roughly 50 times) – due to myriad of technology options to be evaluated, need for integrated operational planning and the mandates to satisfy different stake holders. We developed AP-Jibe to help you plan quickly and effectively
