Smart

Rapid adoption of packet switching technology in telecommunications created a shortage of highly skilled VoIP engineers. Virtually all telecommunication carriers are feeling lack of expertise in one or another area of VoIP deployment and maintenance.

Successful VoIP deployment must include input from multiple specialists:

  • IP security engineer
  • IP networking engineer
  • Telecommunication engineer
  • SS7 signaling engineer
  • Network planner
  • VoIP specialist

R&R is one of the pioneers of Cloud services and refined all aspects of it.

Managed services offer the fastest way to enter new market or expand existing business.
R&R manages switching centers in major traffic hubs around the world. Equipment has been already deployed, tested and is ready for new tenants.

Opening new POP has never been that easy and that affordable.
Traditionally building new POP required months of preparation work and substantial expenses: facility planning, transport logistics, colocation and IP bandwidth services, equipment installation, configuration and testing. It was also a risky undertaking – while planning and building a POP economics of the deal could have changed or technical issues could have stopped the project.
Managed solution also saves time-to-market after POP has been established. Should you need additional switching capacity, technical support or any local services – you have a single point of contact. We will take care of your requirements in expedient and professional way.

In today’s wholesale telecom there are two major growth strategies:

  • Be closer to customer
  • Be closer to terminating network and play quality differentiation

Highest customer concentration is in the large cities; hence most obvious way to grow number of customers is to follow them:

  • Build out POPs close to customers
  • Acquire local start-ups with existing customer base
  • Partner with local dominant player

Traditional expansion methods are flawed.
Each of the outlined strategies presumes carriers are willing to invest time and considerable resources into the expansion and exactly these resources are always in short supply. The other feature of any expansion opportunity is a risk frontloading – while carrier invests resources to expand future cash flows are very uncertain. Changes in regulatory or a shift in competition landscape may turn expected revenues upside down.

Network outsourcing is the answer
Outsourcing not only reduces upfront risk of any expansion, but it also helps to create a more agile organization. Along with time-to-market benefits and superior human capital company becomes more flexible in its market decisions as it has no “burden of old assets”, unlike competition and can also enjoy higher market valuation due to higher ROA.
