Yes! TOP Engineers Plus has developed trusted relationships that allow it to provide extensive Communications Engineering services across a vast number of disciplines.
Can you provide Engineering, Procurement and Construction?
Yes! TOP Engineers Plus is able to provide turnkey critical infrastructure solutions by engaging in the project as a Engineering, Procurement & Construction contractor – responsible for all aspects of the project, from initial design to final commissioning.
The EPC approach has become increasingly popular due to its ability to streamline the construction process and reduce costs. By having a single entity responsible for all aspects of the project, there is less room for miscommunication or delays between different parties.
One of the key benefits of EPC is that it allows for greater control over quality and safety standards. The EPC contractor can ensure that all materials and equipment used in the project meet strict specifications and are installed correctly.
What is involved in your development of a Master Plan?
A master plan is an essential tool for organizations and communities seeking to achieve long-term success. It enables them to develop a clear vision for the future while providing guidance on how best to allocate resources towards achieving their goals.
TOP’s development of a Communications Infrastructure Master Plan involves:
Functional Needs Assessment – We will identify current stakeholders/operators to determine use cases. We will interview stakeholders including executive, operators/users, technical support to determine key strategic drivers, the corporate vision and how technology can be an enabler.
Technical Needs Assessment – TOP Engineers Plus will inventory the existing technology delivery platforms to assess current network architecture and suggest improvements as needed; assess physical architecture relating to reliability, route diversity, and strategies to minimize long outages either planned or incident related and assess splicing that drives architecture and determine accessibility needs.
Organizational Needs Assessment – TOP Engineers Plus will assess current support strategy and offer recommendations as needed. We will also address incident response, maintenance and support.
Assessment of Budgeted/Planned Projects – TOP Engineers Plus will assess each project with a stoplight chart as it relates to the vision – stop, continue, or delay for future implementation. TOP will then determine if the budget supports the vision and the phasing.
In the Summary Phase of the project, TOP Engineers Plus will perform a gap analysis to determine what it will take to achieve the vision. We will then develop an Infrastructure Roadmap defining the physical architecture and medium; a Technology Roadmap defining the logical transport; and an Organizational Roadmap. The Organization Roadmap will define management tools for Physical Network and for Logical Network as well as define support resources needed for both the internal corporate knowledge bank and the external interim expertise needs.
TOP will then distill all of the information gathered to date and apply their knowledge base and experience to develop the budget strategy to accomplish the goals defined and accepted during the process. A deliverable of a Communications Infrastructure Master Plan with Budgetary, Phasing and Implementation will be presented.
