Demonstrating the Scalable Technology Rollout System

The technology industry is changing every day with developments in new technologies and the continuing growth of the telecommunications field. It has become increasingly important for business practices to reflect the growth in the industry with scalable models. When evaluating a Technology Rollout Company, it is best to not only determine how well they will manage and complete your current technology deployment project, but consider how their system of methodologies for deploying technology will be scaled to work efficiently no matter the technology, number of sites or services required.

Commodity Service Viewpoint
Technology rollout services are sometimes incorrectly viewed as a commodity service. Some assume that most anyone who has any kind of deployment business model has the ability to manage and deploy a rollout on a nationwide scale to the quality and efficiency you desire. This rationale can be equated to that of the fast food industry in which you have a drive-thru providing the same level of service on every corner. However, the difference is that when you drive off after receiving your order, you find out that you didn’t get what you paid for. Now, compare this to a restaurant that specializes in not just food, but also the process of preparation and service experience. Not only are they able to provide rapid service, but it is accompanied with the highest quality of standards from the time you enter the establishment to the time you exit and if your order is not to your likings they are there to correct it immediately. The commodity service viewpoint is a huge risk in the industry because it assumes that technology rollouts do not require in-depth expertise, long-term established partnerships and a Technology Rollout System to ensure management of all aspects of the Rollout Life Cycle.

Applying the Technology Rollout System to a Multi-Site, Multi-Service Project
No two technology rollout projects are the same. As part of a Technology Rollout Company’s system of methodologies, a Rollout Services Model consisting of integrated components that are flexible and scalable to any project size and scope allows the Tehnology Rollout Company to provide multi-site, multi-service, multi-technology rollouts efficiently.

Multiple Sites:
The ideal system would work as effectively for a project consisting of thousands of sites as it would for one site. The Rollout Delivery Team varies from company to company, but always should define the essential roles relating to the execution of the project. With a defined management processes and an efficient communication channel, a Technology Rollout Company can take on a project of any size with the same quality of service- from one site to tens of thousands of sites.

Multiple Services:
The deployment method utilized will have an effect on the ability to meet site-specific requirements such as services, deployment technologies, technical support and communication specifications. Using local resources allows the Technology Rollout Company to get the job done no matter the technology or equipment required.

How is this Flexibility Possible?
The integrated components under the Rollout Services Model with Project Management as its cornerstone component, allows the Technology Rollout Company to apply their system of methodologies to any project size and scope. The Rollout Services Model is universal and technology independent allowing it to be applied to all types of projects no matter the technology, equipment or services required. Finally, the Project Manager, as part of the Rollout Delivery Team, manages the rollout process and serves as the customer’s single point of contact ensuring all project activities are completed to the customer’s specifications.

Until Now, Federal Law Mandated a Demarc Extension for Every Telecom Circuit Delivered in the U.S. Without Guidelines

Concert Technologies Defines the Standards of Previously Convoluted Terminology and Improper Installation of the Demarc Extension

DULLES, VA, JANUARY 15, 2010 –  Concert Technologies, the nationwide installation and international rollout leader, today announced the launch of its Demarc Extension Nationwide brand and associated website which defines the previously non-existent standards for a demarc extension.

FCC part 68 regulation and federal law mandates every telecommunications circuit to have a demarc extension. This is the critical cabling and equipment that extends a circuit in the building from the local access provider’s demarcation point to the edge customer’s premises equipment. There are thousands of circuits delivered weekly to organizations across the country with each circuit requiring a demarc extension. Without the standardization of terms and installation practices, there is a high risk of negative impact to the delivery, performance and maintenance of critical telecommunications circuits and their access to the internet and other network connections outside of a facility.

“This has been a problem in the industry for over three decades,” said Dennis Mazaris, developer of Demarc Extension Nationwide and President of Concert Technologies. “The lack of industry standards and terms has caused confusion, delayed communication flow and finger pointing, as well as issues in overall service delivery. With a decade and a half of experience deploying technology nationwide and globally, we have taken the initiative in defining and standardizing a demarc extension, the single most critical cabling component within a facility.”

Benefits to the Industry

The Demarc Extension Nationwide initiative standardizes the previous confusion within the telecommunications and technology industry.  The Demarc Extension Nationwide brand was developed for the following purposes:

  • To deliver an accelerated and exceptional level of nationwide service, including international capabilities, for the installation and maintenance of demarc extensions.
  • Eliminate management needs and effort by providing all demarc extension services from a single nationwide provider.
  • To provide clear and concise information to the telecommunications market and facilitate the understanding of specifications and installation practices for the demarc extension.
